Legs

Anodized aluminium

Anodized aluminium

Anodizing is a process which increases the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the aluminium. This layer protects the aluminium from corrosion. We have chosen not to give the aluminium any further treatment, as this would not lengthen its lifespan and would also be very bad for the environment.

Choose wisely
Easy to clean with lukewarm water and a mild detergent.

Legs & armrest

Stainless steel 316

Stainless steel 316

The highest stainless steel quality available is type AISI 316. Aggressive environmental conditions caused by chlorides, acid rain, salt and other rusty materials will require periodic maintenance. 

Choose wisely
We advise a regular treatment with stainless steel cleaner or protector, especially in aggressive environments. Products to clean and protect are widely available.

Jatoba hardwood FSC 100%

Jatoba hardwood FSC 100%
FSC logo

Jatoba wood has exceptional qualities. The durability and stability is extremely high for long, thin slats, which was a key design issue for the whole Extempore range. After intensive collaboration with several authorities such as universities and nature & wild life organizations, Jatoba hardwood came out as the most stable and sustainable species that is widely available.

Choose wisely
At first, Jatoba wood might give off its red color every time it comes into contact with water. Just like other types of wood, Jatoba will gradually become rougher and start to turn grey as a consequence of exposure to the sun and rain. Small cracks and crevices can also appear as part of this process. We strongly advise everyone to treat the furniture with our Wood Protector.

Cushions

Sunbrella

Sunbrella

Sunbrella® is an acrylic fabric that is still known as the best outdoor fabric available for making cushions. The raw material is Sunbrella® solution-dyed acrylic fibre. The colour pigments are locked right into the very heart of the fibres during the initial stage of the manufacturing process, before the yarn is even made Sunbrella® colours stand up to tough weather conditions and years of sun exposure.

Choose wisely
Our Sunbrella cushions and blankets are machine washable at low temperatures. A white and a coloured cushion can both get dirty, but the white one will look dirtier sooner. Do not tumble dry.
