Arcadia is a collection of furniture based on simple intersecting sheets of solid wood. The formal language is a continuation of the Inlay series for Bloc Studios from 2018, which was done using intersecting marble slabs. By changing the material the design takes on a new character, moving from the high culture of the Italian Palazzos, to the modest vernacular of the Scottish Highlands.

This Product Plants A Tree
As part of ÅBEN's mission to make a more positive contribution to the environment, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant one tree for every product sold. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines.
We need more trees. Find out more on onetreeplanted.org
