Spider Web / 1.149 eur
Designed by Anders Brøgger
The Spider Web Drying Rack from Skagerak not only resembles the artistry of the tiny predator, it also shares its resilience and ability to stay captivating and functional in even the harshest surroundings. The frame is made of teak, which is a hard and sturdy type of wood that changes colour over time and eventually develops a beautiful silver-grey patina. The high content of natural oils makes it highly weather resistant – and an obvious choice for outdoor furniture.

- 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 weather and rot resistant and is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
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.
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.
During winter we advise you to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
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.
NB: When using Skagerak's drying racks, do not dry your wet laundry directly on the wood as this might discolour the fabrics.
About the designer / Anders Brøgger
A design must have material as its point of departure. To Anders Brøgger this is how the design – and the shape of each component – takes its starting point in the unique characteristics and production techniques of the material. He prefers to work with wood – ash to be precise – and his favourite spot is the Marble Church in Copenhagen, Denmark. Here, in the midst of the infinite richness of detail in the old church, are a host of details to examine and sensory impressions for the young designer to explore.
