Modern Preachers (tall) Table

Arc3 Preachers (tall) table (with AR film)

About this Arc3 Preachers (tall) Table

The Arc3 Preachers (tall) table is a drastic departure from geometric shapes.

It uses organic shapes (non primary shapes). This is much more modern and creates a more flowing appearance and a more dynamic feeling. This reflects the dynamic nature of church preaching. The preacher will rarely stand still on the stage. Instead they are dynamic, moving around, gesturing and expressing.

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

Initially, we explored other materials. That would have been much easier. But other materials are not as durable or strong as stainless steel. We want the table to stand up to the strain of being used in a church for 20 years and still look good. If we were to use a painted finish, a chip or scratch would need to be retouched. Stainless steel is raw which means that 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 (the sort you would use to clean pans).

Adding to this, stainless steel and clear acrylic (with anti reflective film) are what designers and architects call ‘raw finishes’.
Unlike painted or applied finishes, raw finishes are neutral in appearance and are more likely to fit into a variety of church interiors. They look good in a traditional cathedral or a modern warehouse church building. 

The Arc3 Preachers table comes 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.

It comes flat (keeps the parts safer and avoids the cost of sending air).  It requires assembly and we provide the tools and expect it to take you less than 5 minutes to put together.

Like our other tables, it is made by us in Australia. It takes constant supervising 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. 

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

More about the painful birth of the Arc3

Although still modern, to us the Arc2 range was looking a bit long in the tooth. 

We tried 17 times to design a better lectern than the Arc2. 16 times our hand picked customers said they preferred the Arc2. It was fruitless and frustrating. Finally Stephen designed a lectern shape that looked amazing but was impossible to make. We spent thousands of dollars and many hours painstakingly hand making just one. Our select customers loved it. They wanted to buy it. We had to find a way to make it at a reasonable price. 

So over the following 2 years of trial and error, we finally worked out how to make it. It was impossible to make using conventional machines, so we had no choice but to make our own. 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 impossible to make, produced 436 design drawings, and we set fire to a tree. We think it was worth the effort!

Due to high demand, this is temporarily out of stock.
We are making more! We expect to have them finished in 4 weeks.
Please go ahead and order - we will send it to you as soon as we have them finished.

Our previous lectern designs have geometric shapes. Made up of what are called primary forms. For example circles, cones, rectangles etc. These shapes look good, and are relatively easy to make.
