Cutter is a varied and versatile collection, designed by Niels Hvass for Skagerak. It consists of several storage devices (coat racks, shelves and boxes), several seats (stool, bench and folding seat), as well as a beautiful mirror to decorate the wall of a room or an entrance.
The Cutter collection will be perfect for furnishing small spaces such as a house or apartment entrance, where storage must be practical and optimized. Cutter will also find its place in larger spaces, such as a living room, a veranda or a terrace: the bench and the stool, in addition to serving as a seat, can in fact serve as a side table to arrange plants and decorative objects. decoration.
Each Cutter element is available in untreated teak, untreated oak as well as black painted oak.
Teak is a very hard and sturdy type of wood. Its high content of natural oils makes it very resistant and rot-proof. It will therefore be perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. As the wood is untreated, the surface will change color over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey. To preserve untreated teak, it is advisable to use sandpaper (grit 120-150) once or twice a year.
For untreated oak, it is recommended to saturate the wood with soap or suitable oil to make it more resistant and protect it from various stains. We have explained several products to guide you in your choice.
As for the oak painted black, it does not require any particular maintenance. Simply wipe it with a damp cloth, then with a dry cloth.
