- 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 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.
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.
The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
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.
About the designer / Wesley Walters & Salla Luhtasela
Wesley Walters & Salla Luhtasela also known as Studio Kaksikko are indeed a hybrid design constellation, where Nordic and American and Asian inspiration and traditions come together to give rise to new products and furniture. The duo met at the Aalto University in Helsinki. Before that, Salla studied to be a confectioner, and Wesley studied East Asian languages and worked as a Japanese interpreter on film sets. It was here, surrounded by architecture and set designs, that Wesley’s fascination with design was lit.
After teaming up at the university in Helsinki they established a joint studio in Finland, creating objects and furniture in a minimalist expression that is both new and old. New because of their mixed international background and eye for modern details, and old because of their fascination with and interest in traditions, techniques and old crafts, where they derive hands-on experience from 1:1 mock-ups that gives them a broad, eye-opening and concrete grasp of tactility, materials and functionality.
