- 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.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Southeast Asia, Central America and Brazil, while our non-certified 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.
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.
