The Swedish Society of Industrial Design arranged the Helsingborg Exhibition of 1955, to, in the optimistic spirit of the age, showcase the previous 25 years since the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930. The event acquired the neat nickname of H55. Scandinavia’s designers were extremely well represented, including Alvar Aalto, Stig Lindberg, Yngve Ekström, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen. And Björn Hultén. Björn designed a sun chair – one of the things that we at Skargaarden have always held dear as a source of reference and inspiration. It’s so perfect it’s almost provocative. How so little material can provide so much comfort. How something that speaks with such subtlety can become the focal point for a whole garden.
It’s now 60 years since the H55 exhibition. We’re marking this with a 60th anniversary edition of the H55 that features Sunbrella Renaissance fabric in darker and lighter versions.
|Features||OUR SELECTION OF MATERIALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT All our oak, teak, ash, linen, leather and glass is selected from a long-term perspective of sustainability. Our teak comes from carefully selected approved plantations with the highest available quality. The oak comes from wood suppliers who take great responsibility for the environment in all stages of production. Our linen comes from wellknown Romo and our outdoor fabrics are from Sunbrella and Ferrari, both leading companies in the development of weather-resistant fabrics.|
|Care Notes||Wood is a material that needs to be looked after well. By caring for your
furniture properly, you can increase its lifespan and keep it beautiful.
One simple way to do this is by wiping it with a damp cloth, so that
pollen, bird droppings and other types of dirt do not gain a foothold.
Our oiled oak furniture is finished with quality oil. Maintenance needs are determined by how much the furniture is exposed to the sun, water and general use. However, a rule of thumb is that you should oil your furniture twice a year. Over time, small cracks will form in the wood; this is entirely normal and gives what is known as patina. If you prefer, you can choose not to oil your furniture. It will then develop a lovely grey hue, but will be less resistant to the elements. PAINTED WOOD Painted surfaces can usually go three to four seasons outdoors without a great deal of maintenance. However, if paint gets chipped or becomes worn, you need to repair it immediately. TEAK We recommend that you allow your teak furniture to age naturally and that you simply clean it thoroughly once or twice a year. If you want to retain the golden-brown colour of new teak you will commit to a regular maintenance program. If the furniture is left to age naturally outside by being exposed to light, air and rain, then the surface of the teak will gradually change to beautiful soft, silver-grey.
