Transform your outdoor living space with the Elements Collection
The Elements Collection is made from elements, for the elements. Whoever said that design furniture can’t go outside? The designs in this collection are inspired by the luxury of indoor living, and the refreshing lifestyle we enjoy outdoors.
The collection includes an outdoor table, matching dining benches and an indoor coffee table which all boast timeless and durable designs. Each piece is the result of a careful balance between beauty and functionality.
Characteristic of the collection are the slats that form the slatted surface of these pieces. This design gives the furniture a minimalist, timeless and stylish appearance. Not only are the slats a key aesthetic and image-defining element of the collection, but they are also necessary to ensure the furniture’s durability as they allow the wooden material to breathe.
“The starting point for the design of this outdoor collection was sustainability and the goal that our outdoor furniture, like all Studio HENK products, would last a very long time,” says our Creative Director, Xander Albers.
The Elements Collection is made from the best-known renewable and bio-based raw material: FSC certified wood. To create a durable outdoor table, we went searching for a wood to work with that could endure years of sun and rain. This is when we found FSC certified Accoya and Iroko wood. Both materials have ideal qualities for withstanding outdoor conditions, and both come from ethically maintained forests.
Each piece in the collection is made-to-order with customers able to choose between these two different woods. Accoya furniture is slightly lighter, while the Iroko furniture has a slightly darker colour. We leave the wood untreated so the materials will last longer and need less maintenance. Another effect of not treating the wood is that over time, with exposure to the elements, they will undergo a beautiful and natural colour transformation and develop a greyish tinge.
We also introduced a sustainable outdoor fabric for the Elements Outdoor Benches seat cushions. The fabric, Heritage, is made using 50% recycled Sunbrella fabrics, and it has OEKOTEX and GreenGuard certifications.
A prominent feature of every Studio HENK piece is customisability. The Elements Outdoor Table and Elements Outdoor Bench are available in various lengths and with a choice of the wooden Elements frame or steel frames including our popular Butterfly and New Classic designs. Complete your setting with the indoor Elements Coffee Table which can be customised with oak wood in the finish of your choice.
Imagine warm summer days spent enjoying the sun and an outdoor meal on these beautiful pieces of design furniture. The Elements Collection effortlessly merges indoor and outdoor living; bringing the indoors out and the outdoors in.
