- 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.
Marble is a natural rock and one of the oldest building materials to mankind. As this noble and durable stone has been formed over millions of years from heat and pressure, each slab will turn out as a unique piece of art made by nature itself. The Skagerak marble is cut and processed in Italy, but has its place of origin in different countries across the world. Your new product includes black marble with the full name Nero Marquina and has its origin in Spain.
Start by wiping off the surface with a dry, soft cloth to remove any dirt particles. For a regular cleaning, all you need is hot water and a soft sponge or cloth. For a deeper cleaning, apply a suitable, acid-neutral marble cleaner. Buff dry with a cotton cloth or chamois leather.
Note: Blot up spills immediately. Marble is a porous material and will etch if you spill acidic substances on it such as citrus, wine, coffee and vinegars. That is also why you should never use acidic or abrasive cleaners.
Remove stubborn stains with a poultice paste.
1) Mix baking soda and water into a thick paste.
2) Apply it to the stained area, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest for 12-24 hours.
3) Then remove the plastic wrap and wipe off the poultice with a damp cloth.
4) The process might have to be repeated for a perfect result.
You can help protecting the surface from stains and etching by sealing the marble top once or twice a year. Use a suitable marble sealer or simply mix soap flakes with water and apply the foam on the table top for 5 minutes. Dry off with a soft, damp cloth.
Oil Treated Oak
Oak with the botanical name Quercus spp. grows in most temperate zones. Skagerak oak comes from European forests.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood. Furthermore, the Skagerak oak is FSC 100 % certified or FSC Mix certified. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is done by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production. Oak contains tannins which reduces bacterial growth in the wood.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Your new product comes with an oil treatment. For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth. Spills are to be removed immediately to minimize risk of spots.
Oil treated products are to be retreated from time to time to keep the protective layer on the surface and maintain the aesthetic qualities from the oil.
For future treatment, use a suitable oil treatment product and follow the enclosed instructions carefully. Avoid contact of the oil with other materials to avoid spots and marks. If you wish to change the treatment of your product, the previous treatment must be removed completely before applying a new.
About the designer / Thomas Jenkins
‘Quality over fashion’. That’s how the British (and now Oslo-based) designer Thomas Jenkins describes his vision for design. Jenkins is trained as an engineering designer but got frustrated with the lack of connection to the end user and decided to move into the universe of furniture and product design instead. And here, simplicity has become a key element to him. As he strives to come up with new objects that people can live with over a very long time, finding the right balance in a design is vital. It needs to have enough presence that you grow attached to it, but not too much that you lose interest over time.
