Arconas | 2013
Datum is a small table for public spaces.
Arconas approached us with the challenge of creating a table to support the collection of seating cubes they were already selling by offering a companion product. It was intended to work in public spaces and offer integrated power.
Datum draws inspiration from the idea of a dock in 2 specific ways. The first is the datum line formed by the surface of the water - the legs of the table reflect the datum plane created by the height of the cubes. And secondly the table and cube together present a casual opportunity for a passerby to ‘dock’ there a while for rest, access to power, meetings etc.. The top has cast features that offer a location to hang a bag or jacket on and reference cleats on the side of a dock.
