It was designed by Bernt Santesson.
Denmark’s northern tip The idea of the picturesque, white lacquered pieces of furniture can be traced to the golden Skagen age, as artists like Kroyer, Ancher, and Drachmann were inspired by the unique nature and the special light the northern tip of Denmark is known for. The first characteristic white furniture of Skagen was made by local carpenters, as testified by contemporary pictures. It was this furniture and the aura surrounding them as they stood in the beautiful gardens and the picturesque nature, which stimulated the modern white painted furniture, today produced by Skagerak. Robust and solid wood
Teak wood is hard, stable, and processing friendly.
At the same time, the wood characterised is by a unique content of natural impregnating oils, through which the wood is resistant to rot and fungus. Therefore, high-quality teak furniture can stand year-round outdoors without further treatment other than regular cleaning.
Those who would like to preserve the beautiful colours of the wood and would like a darker shade, can treat the furniture with oil. A cushion is also available upon request for the Drachmann bench by Skagerak. The Drachmann Bank is part of the similarly named collection by Skagerak. It consists of high-quality wood and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The bench is available in teak and white lacquered Sapele wood.
