Wooden Garden Bench in Teak
The Skagen Bench from Skagerak has a solid yet elegant impression. The timeless bench with its unmistakable crosses on the back is a master example of Scandinavian furniture design.
The idea behind the artistic, white lacquered piece of furniture dates back to the golden era of Skagen. During this time, artists like Kwoyer, Ancher and Drachmann were inspired by nature and its special and unique light, which characterises the north of Denmark.
Skagerak Skagen Bench: Classic and Timeless
Mogens Holmriis was inspired by these classic pieces to design his Skagen Bench for Skagerak. The bench with 3 seats is classically drawn, while the function has remained the same: thanks to the outstanding Skagerak quality, the durable bench has fulfilled the “Design for Generations” claim and is suitable for outdoor- and indoor-use alike.
Teak wood is hard, stable and very easy to be processed. The wood also possesses some natural properties that make it more resistant to rot and fungi. Therefore, the furniture can be left outside throughout the year without needing any other treatment besides the regular cleaning. If you want to get the beautiful play of colours from the wood, or would like darker tones, this can be achieved by treating the bench with oil.
