As a workshop that designs, experiments and innovates with wood, ARCA is perhaps best known for one of its amazing inventions, the Airwood inflatable wood solution! From its perfect mastery of traditional tools to the invention of new techniques and materials, ARCA uses its expertise to help designers, interior designers, brands, publishers and individuals to execute their designs.
Wood is at the forefront of everything we do: all our considerations, our creations, our techniques and our innovations
The design studio is the hub of ARCA’s creative endeavours and where the artistic direction of client projects takes place. We provide strategic and creative support, from the initial idea right through to production, to help anticipate and resolve any aesthetic or technical design issues that might arise.
Our innovation department creates new design techniques and develops new wood-based materials, sometimes working in collaboration with scientists. The various experiments we consistently perform allow us to push the boundaries of the materials we use to open up new creative avenues and create innovative furnishings, fixtures and fittings for all sectors of activity, from artistic cabinet-making, architecture, design and contemporary art to the automobile industry, among others.
