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.

  • Oiled Teak

    Origin
    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.

    Why
    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 all kinds of household articles.

    Cleaning
    Clean with soapy water and a soft brush right after usage. Be aware that the product is not dishwasher safe.

    Oil treatment
    The teak has been treated with food safe oil to improve its resistance. Therefore, we recommend that you treat the wood at regular intervals with an oil – e.g. worktop oil – to preserve the glow and resistance. If the product is not oiled continuously, the surface may change colour over time and become silvery grey.

About the designer / Christoffer Harlang

Christoffer Harlang grew up surrounded by design, art and architecture, and his vision of design is a modernistic one: design should improve and innovate without attracting attention, offering a subtle and sensuous experience that creates an inviting and friendly atmosphere. Much like architecture.

Christoffer Harlang trained as an architect, and besides holding a PhD and a title as professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, he also has his own studio. One of the firm’s latest tasks was to assist in building the new visitor centre for the old fortress of Hammershus on the Danish island of Bornholm. During that process, the idea of a series of products came to mind, and the collaboration with Skagerak began.

Harlang is inspired by anonymous design made by skilled craftspeople in a classical approach. In this regard he follows in the footsteps of Danish design icons such as Kaare Klint, Poul Kjærholm and Arne Jacobsen. They all improved and refined the furniture and product types they worked with in an exacting and inventive process. According to Christoffer Harlang, design should coexist with the surroundings in a beautiful and harmonious way.
