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.

  • Oak

    Origin
    Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.

    Why
    Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannings that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior and accessories.

    Cleaning
    The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.

    Maintenance
    As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.

    Note
    Your new oak product is not suitable for dishwasher.

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.
