Studio HENK launches first outdoor furniture collection: Elements outdoor
Studio HENK presents Elements: the first outdoor collection of the Dutch interior brand. Studio HENK also brings its characteristic minimalist designs outside through a series of stylish wooden outdoor furniture.
The new Elements collection for outdoors consists of a dining table, dining bench and coffee table. The furniture is made from the best-known renewable, biobased raw material: wood. There is a choice of a light version, made from Accoya wood, and a version with a darker color, made from Iroko. Both types of wood are FSC certified, which ensures that forests are protected for current and future generations. Accoya is an acetylated wood type; this very environmentally friendly treatment ensures a slow aging and a lifespan of about 50 years (the highest durability class 1). Accoya is fully recyclable and has Cradle-to-cradle Gold certification. Iroko is also aging, and also has a long lifespan of about 25 years (durability class 1-2).
Design follows demand for sustainability:
Characteristic of the collection are the slats that together form a "slatted" surface, which gives the furniture a minimalist, timeless and stylish appearance. “The starting point for the design of the outdoor furniture was mainly sustainability, the wish that our outdoor furniture, like all Studio HENK products, can last a long time,” says creative director Xander Albers. “The design question was: 'How can we use what is necessary – the slats, or the' slatted 'elements – as an aesthetically powerful and image-defining element? breathe and it stays beautiful longer. ”
A special detail is that the dining table and the sofa can be put together by the customer. The dining table and dining bench are available in different sizes and finishes. The dining table is available in lengths from 160 to 300 cm. The sofa is also available in different lengths, from 140 to 260cm. The table and bench are also available with three steel outdoor frames; the timeless Butterfly, New Classic and Slim X-Type. Comfort has also been thought of – with a matching seat cushion with a durable character; Sunbrella Heritage upholstery, made with 50% recycled Sunbrella Acrylic.
Elements coffee table – also for indoors:
As part of the Elements collection, Studio HENK is launching, in addition to the outdoor coffee table, the Elements coffee table for indoor use, which is available in FSC certified oak wood in various finishes.
The Elements collection will be available from 8 May 2021 in Studio HENK's flagship stores in Amsterdam and Antwerp, and will soon also be available online and through the Studio HENK sales points.
