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 weather and rot resistant and is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
Do a general cleaning when needed with a suitable wood cleaner and soft bristle brush. Rinse afterwards with clear water and let it dry. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after dinner and such with a dry cloth.
As the wood is untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey colour. If you wish to preserve or intensify the original honey-golden colour, use a suitable furniture oil on a regular basis. No matter what you choose, the wood will be resistant to everyday wind and weather thanks to the high content of natural oils.
During winter we advise you to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
The wood has been dried for outdoor use. Hence, if you wish to use the furniture indoors it may need to be re-tightened once in a while.
Powder coated Aluminum
Powder coating is a high-quality and dry finishing process which makes is possible to create a thicker and more streamlined surface than with conventional liquid paint. To coating is applied on the super light-weight aluminum in order to reduce the risk of impact from moisture, UV, scratches and corrosion.
Use a soft brush with soapy water and wipe with a dry cloth. Note: Do not use abrasive pads or abrasive cleaning agents as this may harm the surface.
Although sturdy and resistant, powder coated aluminum is not invincible, and scratches in the coating can appear. To prolong the life of your product, we recommend to recoat the scratches immediately with our special touch-up paint.
The product is usable in all types of wind and weather, all year round. However, during wintertime, it is advisable to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
About the designer / Maximilian Schmahl
‘For me, good design is about working very concentrated and trying to find and compare different possible solutions and materials.’ Thus, new ideas and objects do not emerge from out of the blue, according to German Maximilian Schmahl, but are the result of a concentrated work effort aimed at finding the best solution. Patience is one of his finest virtues, because durable results require time and immersion in a task. ‘Design should not take itself too seriously but be of use to people.’ The biggest compliment a designer can hope for, according to Schmahl, is that people want to live with his or her products every day.
