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

    Origin
    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.

    Why
    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.

    Cleaning
    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.

    Maintenance
    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.

    Winter storage
    During winter we advise you to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.

    Indoor use
    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.
