Powder Coated Steel
Steel is a strong, timeless and malleable material—enabling designs with thin profiles and various patterns and shapes. The steel has received a decorative powder coating—a high-quality and dry finishing process that gives a stronger and more streamlined surface than conventional liquid paintings.
Use soapy water and a soft brush. Wipe off with a dry cloth. Note: Do not use abrasive pads or abrasive cleaning agents as this may harm the surface.
Although sturdy and resistant, powder coated steel is not invincible, be careful not to make scratches in the surface as it will make the material vulnerable to corrosion.
Paper cord is a natural, long-lasting and comfortable type of material. The weaving is a time-consuming process carried out by hand—ensuring the best results and durability. Vent Stool is produced in collaboration with the Danish company “Blindes Arbejde” (Work by the blind)—a socio-economic business employing and empowering blind and visually impaired individuals.
Red wine, jam, fruit juice and other foods with strong color may cause discoloring of paper cord if spilled. In case you stain the seat, we recommend to use a damp cloth to clean it off immediately after spilling. Make sure you don’t rub the liquid further into the paper; simply blot the stained area with the cloth. Do not apply harsh cleaners as it might harm the material unnecessarily.
Paper cord requires little to no maintenance due to its natural and strong features, but it is not totally unbeatable. New jeans and other strongly dyed textiles might discolor the material.
Over time, the paper cord will gradually take on a beautiful, darker patina.
