ARPA

EDITOR IDUNA

Dois planos verticais e um horizontal formam uma mesa. As espessuras são reduzidas ao mínimo possível. O desenho assenta em três ideias fundamentais: simplicidade formal, funcionalidade e multiplicidade de soluções. Privilegia a relação pessoal e encerra uma contradição intrínseca: embora pensada como uma peça única no pequeno gabinete individual, o seu desenho permite responder claramente a soluções complexas de utilização em grandes espaços.

The table is composed by two vertical planes and a horizontal one. The thicknesses are reduced to the minimum. The design is based on three fundamental ideas: formal simplicity, functionality and multiplicity of solutions. Arpa emphasizes the personal relationship and contains an inherent contradiction: although it was thought as a single piece in the small individual office, Arpa is flexible enough to clearly answer complex solutions, allowing its use in large spaces.
