Drachmann Bench 200 1.200 dkk
Designed by Bernt Santesson
Launched in 1982, Drachmann is Skagerak’s longest-living garden bench – and it’s still going strong. Inspired by the Danish poet and painter Holger Drachmann, the design strikes a timeless balance between Nordic nostalgia and modern simplicity. Beautiful on its own, perhaps against a south-facing wall, and convenient as a comfortable seat at the table. Durable in all kinds of weather, the bench ages with grace, taking on a silver-grey patina.
Please note that the rented furniture can be either new or patinated. Teak patinates beautifully over time and has the same value both new and used.
WxDxH: 209x58x86 cm / Seat H: 44 cm

- Material & product care
Proper usage and maintenance
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.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia, Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America, Brazil and Indonesia, while our non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Southeast Asia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly weather and rot resistant and is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
Do a general cleaning when needed with a suitable wood cleaner and soft bristle brush. Rinse afterwards with clear water and let it dry. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after dinner and such with a dry cloth.
As the wood is untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey colour. The untreated wood is resistant to everyday wind and weather thanks to the high content of natural oils.
During the rent period you are not allowed to use furniture oil or use any other kind of wood treatment on the furniture.
This product is usable in all weathers, all year round. However, if you want indoor storage during the winter months, it is advisable to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or a cellar.
The wood has been dried for outdoor use. Hence, if you wish to use the furniture indoors it may need to be re-tightened once in a while.
