- 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 the rest of our 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.
About the designer / Jacob Berg
Jakob Berg (1958–2008) was inspired by all the shapes that caught his eye. Design was always a natural part of him. His basic idea about ergonomic shapes and his choice of materials were to a great extent determined by his social reflection and all-embracing attitude to life. He was born in Roskilde, Denmark in 1958 and qualified as an industrial design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1987. Shapes and ideas were always in Jakob Berg’s thoughts, and new projects always lay on the drawing board. From the outset in the 1990s, he cooperated with a number of Danish and international companies and received several distinctions for his work.
