- 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 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.
Compact Laminate is a high-pressure laminate build up from layers of kraft paper dipped in resin and compressed under heat, forming a hard and homogenous plate. The top and bottom sheets are coloured and impregnated with melamine, which altogether makes it an extremely durable and impact resistant material.
Use a damp cloth and wipe with a dry cloth afterwards. Marks made by solvent-based pens are best removed using ethyl alcohol, and pencil marks are best removed using an eraser. Wine, fruit juice, etc. may discolour the surface if not immediately removed. For difficult stains, apply a proper furniture cleaner. However, we recommed not to use abrasive materials such as steel wool, scouring powder, etc. for cleaning. If used outdoors we recommend applying a furniture cleaner made for outdoor furniture.
Darker tables used outdoors will eventually change colour. Applying furniture oil made for outdoor furniture can reduce this. To strengthen the surface and protect against tear and wear, we recommend an after-treatment with a suitable vinyl- and lacquer care. To mimimize the absorbation of moisture, give the edges a little oil 2-3 times a year.
If used outdoors it is advisable to store the furniture in a garage or cellar during the winter. Because of the possibility of moisture being absorbed at the edge, we recommend storing the table top in a dry frost-free area.
