Designed by Chuck Mack
Trestles have a long history of bearing weight. From the logs of the forest industry to tool-laden workbenches in oily garages When Chuck was building houses, he started out by building sets of carpenter trestles. He made them strong, light and stackable. Afterwards when the houses were built, he got praise from people who claimed the trestles because of their quality. One day, he thought, I’m going to elevate the trestle design to an art form.
The success of his Arco desk with a tempered glass worktop has been evident. The minimalistic design is both practical and functional, something Chuck Mack always strives for in his work. He takes a lot of pride producing quality woodwork and his background as a carpenter becomes clear when you look closely at his work. His trestles can obviously bear serious weight.
We asked him if we could take his idea further and put simple table and bench tops on them and luckily, he said yes. That’s why we have put our first table top project on those trestles. Make it your dining table, work bench or TV stand. It depends on how you want it. Like many of our products these are modest in their expression but functional and durable. Different sizes and colours gives you the opportunity to personalize your space and look.
