The Arc3 lectern and table are a radical departure from traditional geometric shapes. They use organic shapes (non primary shapes). This creates a more flowing appearance and a more dynamic feeling. It reflects the dynamic nature of church preaching. 

Making organic shapes is much more difficult. It is even more difficult in stainless steel. We estimate that it is about eight times more difficult to make an Arc3 compared with an Arc2. In fact the organic shapes we wanted to make had never been achieved in stainless steel.

For a while we explored different materials. That would have been much easier. But other materials are not as durable as stainless steel. We want the lectern to stand up to the strain of being used in a church for 20 years and still look great. If we were to use a painted finish, a chip or scratch would need to be retouched. Stainless steel is raw, so a scratch or knock will not be noticed in the same way. Most marks can be removed by carefully rubbing with a heavy duty scotch brite pad from the supermarket (like you would use to clean saucepans).

In addition, stainless steel and clear acrylic (with anti reflective film) are what designers might call ‘raw finishes’ .
Unlike painted or applied finishes, raw finishes have a neutral appearance and are more likely to fit into a variety of church interiors. It can be a traditional cathedral, or a modern warehouse church building, raw finishes will still look good. 

The Arc3 lectern has a large 70cm (28”) wide top. Plenty of room for a large notebook and a bible to sit side by side. If you need the top to be smaller, we can make a smaller 60cm/ 24” wide top for the same price. Please e-mail us.

The Arc3 lectern and table come standard with anti reflective film. This is particularly important if you have a projector screen behind the preacher (most churches do). Click here for more information on anti reflective film.

They come flat (keeps the parts safer and avoids the cost of sending air).  They require assembly. We provide the tools and we expect it to take you less than 5 minutes.

Like our other lecterns and tables, they are made by us here in Australia. It takes constant monitoring and problem solving to achieve our standards. We are pulpit specialists, so this is all we do. It takes commitment to this one thing to be able to make this difficult lectern at all, let alone to a high standard. 

They are going to sit in the middle of your stage and your congregation are going to look at them every weekend. We need to be committed to do whatever it takes to get the best possible result. There is no way that this would be possible by sending it away to have someone else try to make it.

More about this church lectern and water table package:

We tried 17 times to design a better lectern than the Arc2.

16 times our select customers said they preferred the Arc2. It was fruitless and exhausting. I (Stephen) finally designed a lectern shape that was amazing looking but impossible to make. We spent thousands of dollars and many hours painstakingly hand making one. Our select customers loved it. They wanted to buy it. We had to find a way to make it at a reasonable price. 

We spent 2 years trial and error working out how to make it. It was impossible to make using conventional machines, so we had to make our own machines. We made machines from a metal cutting flame throwing torch, windscreen wiper motors from tractors, and more conventional parts. In the process, we had 11 suppliers say that various parts were not possible to make, produced 436 design drawings, and we set fire to a tree.

You get free covers for the lectern top and table top, when you purchase this package. The covers are normally £20 each and are essential in protecting the tops when not in use.
