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, harvested under 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. As an open grain wood, Oak absorbs colour really well and leaves graphic traces of the natural texture visible on the surface.
When painted, your product requires no maintenance other than cleaning with a damp cloth. The best result is obtained by wiping over with a dry cloth afterwards. Ordinary cleaning products may be used to remove stubborn dirt.
About the designer / Jens H. Quistgaard
Jens Quistgaard (1919–2008) was an excellent designer. Throughout his career he created designs that during the 1950s and 1960s became synonymous with Scandinavian Modern, and found their way to trade fairs, exhibitions and homes around the world. He was born into an artistic home in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1919. As a boy, he was deeply interested in drawing and ceramics, and as a youth he became an apprentice in his father’s sculptor’s studio. Later, he became an apprentice under Georg Jensen and developed from being a draughtsman and relief-maker to being a sculptural designer.
