Concept

The new chair Sketch is a slim contemporary version of the classic bucket seat, which will look good anywhere. Thanks to the various base options the chair can serve not only as a luxury dining room chair in the home but also around conference tables in meeting rooms and in the office. The design is entirely in keeping with Arco’s signature aesthetic. The clear line, pure shapes and understated style make for a refined look. Yet this chair also introduces a new element with its alluring circular and fully upholstered seat. It is an elegant chair that is also cosy and comfortable.

Arco awarded the design contract to two designers who designed the chair together: Burkhard Vogtherr, and old-hand who has been one of Arco’s star designers since 2000, and Jon Prestwich, who opened his own design studio in London in 2003. Prestwich spent six years working as Voghtherr’s right-hand man in Voghtherr’s studio in Mulhouse in France and worked on design contracts for Arco and Fritz Hansen among other clients. In recent years he has been working as an independent designer and has produced designs for various furniture manufacturers, including Modus in England.
