Soft Board 53x16 / 85 eur
Designed by Mette Schelde
A handy work station in the kitchen and a beautiful serving platter on the dining table. Soft Board takes its name from the rounded edges and smooth, almost velvety surface. The board does not go soft on germs, though, as oak is well-known for its superb anti-bacterial properties. Available in two sizes.

- Material and care
Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannings that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior and accessories.
The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants but it is not necessary to treat small items made from oak. If you wish to do so anyhow, give it a finish with a suitable soap or oil. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
Your new oak product is not suitable for dishwasher.
About the designer / Mette Schelde
Mette Schelde has design in her blood. She challenges her materials by focusing on handicraft and on reflecting the underlying values in a positive way. She was born in Brørup, Denmark and is curious about what surrounds her – people in everyday situations, nature and, in particular, the world of geometry. Her favourite materials are wood and concrete, which represent such complementary, tactile properties as cold/ hard and warm/ soft – and also happen to work well together.
