ARK draws its name from Noah's Ark. This Ark, the well-known massive sea vessel as described in the first book of the Bible, represents a particularly rare ideal, one that ARK perpetually endeavors toward. Designed by God himself, the Ark's strong and purposeful form fully embodies its flawless functionality. It is, in other words, design perfection. Nowhere on earth or throughout history could we at ARK find a more fitting and inspiring namesake.
