Skagerak | Georg Bench
Have a seat on Georg Bench and experience the exquisite meeting between Nordic sensuality and Japanese minimalism. Georg’s DNA is characterized by its slender wooden poles and rounded edges – crafted from light FSC-certified Oak. A braided leather strap keeps the soft, woolen cushion in place on the seat, fulfilling the material encounter of textile, leather and wood.
Designed by Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm.
With a Swedish mother and Danish father Chris shows her Nordic roots in her designs through a minimalistic approach and strong combinations of materials like wood, leather and wool. Function is her starting point and dictates the idiom of her beautiful designs. Chris is a curious and investigative woman. And it is in the investigation that she finds her biggest inspiration – an investigation of all possible angles of a design that draws her and broadens her perspective on the design process. Besides this, she is deeply fascinated by traditional Japanese architecture and design which focuses on the core function of the design.

MATERIAL AND CARE
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.
Fibre Wadding is made of carded thin polyester fibres that contain air in between the fibres. The entrapped air creates the ability to insulate and to provide a soft comfort feeling in the cushion. Maintenance: In order to keep the fibres and cushion full of air, be sure to shake the cushion occasionally. The fibres are FR treated and approved for UK markets.
Crisp is multi-coloured fabric woven in an attractively strong woollen yarn that is composed of 93% wools of New Zealand, 7% polyamide. It has superb abrasion qualities made for everyday use, and is further more naturally dirt resistant. Crisp is both Oeko-Tex and EU Ecolabel certified and 100% free of heavy metals.
Crisp requires a minimum of maintenance and will keep its beautiful appearance for many years. Vacuum the upholstery regularly. Remember to use a proper attachment to avoid pilling.
The Crisp fabric should only be dry-cleaned. However, most spots can be removed with lukewarm water and a mild wool detergent. We recommend to treat stains immediately. It is a good idea to test on a minor spot before beginning the cleaning process. Use only a small amount of detergent and dry up with an absorbent cloth after.
Oak origins: Oak grows in most temperate zones. The Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannings that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior.
The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
As the wood is untreated it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
