This piece is definitely a great lesson in geometry, and rhythm. The arch is not a very common geometric form to be found in furniture, so when it is used properly the arch can create a fantastic piece like the Arcade Table. A piece designed by Thomas Pheasant that combines his preference for traditional lines with clean and contemporary approach.
“From the Colosseum of Rome to Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise, the arch is unique among architectural elements in its ability to move us. Its sense of perspective inspired Thomas Pheasant to create the Arcade series of tables. Through the kind of craftsmanship often reserved for a custom shop, a total of 10 sections are simultaneously cut on a radius, from very thick stock, shaped, tapered left, tapered right, tapered vertically, and hand fit to a perfect circle. The result is the kind of perspective sought by a sculptor, luring us to it, evidence that the hand can master and evolve all the mind can imagine. “ – Baker
