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.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America and Brazil, while the rest of our Teak comes from plantations in Indonesia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly resistant and it is therefore a good choice for household articles and furniture.
For regular cleaning use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
As the wood is untreated the surface will change colour over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey. To maintain untreated wood, it is a good idea to use sandpaper (grit 120-150) once or twice a year.
Stainless steel is a timeless and long-lasting material which is super easy to maintain. The material strength enables designs with thin profiles and various forms and patterns.
Use soapy water and wipe with a dry cloth.
Minor scratches and oxide stains can easily be removed with a non-abrasive scouring pad. Care products for stainless steel such as Gleerustol can also be used. If used on kitchen utilities, always remember to wash it thoroughly after.
When using special care products you should avoid all contact with wood in order not to damaging the surface. Do not use any kind of products containing chlorine as this will damage the surface and make it vulnerable to corrosion.
