Wood is flexible and solid. It is warm and pleasant to touch.
The wood we use for this range of external furniture is a tropical oiled wood or tropical natural wood, mostly iroko hardwood. We chose iroko (botanical names Milicia excelsa and Milicia regia) for its density, robustness, durability and colour. Iroko varies from pale yellow to golden or medium brown with colour tending to darken over time. With a medium to coarse texture, and interlocked grain.
Metal to ensure solidity, slimness and durability.
The use of thin steel structure for the seat ends provides the slimness of the design.
Stability and rigidity of the bench are achieved by running a hidden metal structure throughout the length of the solid wood pieces. With no visible metal welds or screws, the minimalist look of the bench is maintained.
Our products have been designed to suit all types of bodies and ages and to maximise comfort and reduce operator fatigue. All seating elements have an armrest option to help seating and standing positions. They also have generous dimensions for stronger bodies.
The wood we use comes from legal harvesting, with FSC certification upon request. The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) is an international organisation promoting responsible management of the earth’s forests. FSC® chain of custody certification traces wood through the supply chain to forests managed to the high standard FSC® holds, including social, environmental and economic issue.
Iroko hardwood ages very well outdoor and is suitable for all kinds of weather. It can either be oiled every year to keep a warm timber colour or be left without any treatment so it weavers and turns grey.
Steel is always protected by zinc coating. In combination with a spray application of powder coating, it is the best anti-corrosion protection with much higher resistance in comparison to only zinc coated or only powder coated surfaces. The surveys revealed that the spontaneous beginning of corrosion on steel treated with zinc and powder coating is actually not possible. As a surface treatment, we use matt structure powder coating, Available in various shades of the RAL chart.
