This furnitures stands for generations – no matter if it is outside or inside. They only get more beautiful over time, as they are being used. The exceptionally strong African Azobé wood has taken the beating from the ferries, and survived the ice cold salt water. It has been hardened and patinated with time and is treated with great respect to give new life to the wood and to Danish design.
Time is changing and the wharf wood becomes furniture. The joy is in beautiful, rustic and sustainable design, that stands for generations. Bespoke, hand-made furniture with a natural Nordic feel that retains the integrity, history and natural character of the wood. The wood’s original raw look is a result of its exposure to the natural elements for more than half a century. No two pieces of wood are identical.
