Care instructions for this piece of furniture

Wood is a living material whose grain has a natural variation in pattern, hue and lustre from the start. The wood is affected for example by humidity, temperature and season. Due to the fact that wood is a living material it means:

  • Screws need to be tightened regularly, at least once a year.
  • Massive tabletops might need to settle with up to 0.5% depending on the surroundings.
  • Light from lamps and sunshine have a certain effect on the colour and lightness of the wood surface, so please let the same amount of light expose the whole surface.

To take care of the environment we lacquer a big part of our products with water-based products. This means:

  • Spill of coffee or other liquids must be wiped off immediately.
  • Please clean the surface with washing-up liquid or mild pH neutral cleanser and lukewarm water, wipe with clean water and wipe dry. Do not use cleaning agents which are alkaline, aggressive, contains abrasives or solvents.
  • For disinfection non-alcohol based agents are recommended, such as Virkon or DAX Alco Free. Alcohol based agents should not be used.
  • For normal cleaning, please use a slightly damp cloth with a mild cleaning agent without solvents or abrasives.
  • For badly soiled surfaces, please use an alcohol-based cleaner and a damp cloth.
  • Alcohol based agents can be used to disinfect if it is wiped dry with a cloth afterwards.
