Foster+Partners has designed a dining table named Arc for Molteni&C, inspired by the temporary fabric structures, which are increasingly used in contemporary architectural design, and here shape the base of this soft, fluid table.

The base, made of an innovative material composed of cement mixed with organic fibers, is resistant and elastic at the same time, and lends itself to complex structures. It is also waterproof, and the mass-colored base in white and two tones of grey, ensures the color stays fresh throughout its lifespan. These materials allow outdoor usage. Arc complements its base with tempered glass tops, either 140 or 150 cm in diameter, in extra light and smoked finishes.
