Arke is a radical composition made out of eight brushed and anodized aluminum profiles. The profiles are bolted two by two and stand together with a stainless steel rod and two black polyurethane bands. All Aluminum parts are brushed and anodized with an anthracite color giving them high resistance to scratches and stains.
As part of the Ratio series, Arke uses the resources generated by systems of mass production and standardization to recreate the primary form of a console. The simplicity of the piece is further emphasized by the connection system: two large and tailor made rubber bands under tension.
This composition can also be adapted to specific requirements and extend in length, height and width. ‘Arke – Double’ is designed and entirely made by Johan Viladrich, it consists of a limited edition of 25 pieces + 2 artist proofs. Each piece is signed and numbered and professionally packed.
