Arco Okay London
What happens when you take 10 designers based in London and you leave them for one week inside an empty furniture factory in the Dutch countryside?Dutch furniture manufacturer Arco recently organised a workshop with the designers of the London Okay Studio. This was a logical continuation of the Arco 12 project, which took place in 2005 to celebrate the company’s 100 year anniversary. At the time, 12 young Dutch designers were asked to respond to the company’s collection with a design of their own. A number of the results were later included in the Arco furniture range, including the famous Slim Table, designed by Bertjan Pot. It was an extremely successful project, which made a significant contribution to Arco’s development. This is why the company actively keeps in touch with new generations of designers.
