- 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.
Skagerak’s Douglas Pine comes from Schwarzwald, a forested mountain range in the southern part of Germany. The straight and wide trunk of the Douglas Pine makes it suitable for custom-made, solid wood furniture
Cleaning and maintenance
Douglas Pine is a living material. As it comes untreated, it may react to grease, colorants, changes in air humidity, and water. We’ll therefore give you a sanding sponge for easy treatment in case of the surface has risen a bit before unpacking or happens to swell after cleaning. Use it with the following instructions:
1. Sand the surface in the direction of the grain to achieve the best result.
2. After sanding, clean the surface with a damp cloth and dry it off with a kitchen towel.
3. It may take 1-2 repetitions before all grains are cut down.
After unpacking your product, small amounts of resin extraction may occur from the wood. It can quickly be removed with a little denatured alcohol.
Also, minor cracks can appear over time due to changes in the living natural wood.
We recommend to saturate the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
About the designer / Included Middle
Take a furniture designer (Chris L. Halstrøm) and a textile designer (Margrethe Odgaard) and place them in the same room. Now ask them to define a project. That is more or less how this unique design-duo Included Middle began their collaboration. ‘Since we come from two quite different professions our dogma is that both areas should be present in our products. Form, function, pattern and colours affect each other mutually when we work. As Included Middle we almost become a third person, who creates objects based on all four parameters.’
