A two-legged console table fitted against the wall taking up as little space as possible. Georg console desk is a functional piece suited for most rooms: As a welcoming station in the hallways where you can drop off keys and phones. As a make-up vanity in the bedroom or as a minimalist TV stand in the living room. Georg's DNA is a fusion of Nordic and Japanese inspiration with slender rounded wooden poles – crafted from light FSC-certified Oak.

Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Origin Oak grows in most temperate zones. Skagerak oak comes from European forests and is either 100% FSC certified or FSC mix certified, supporting sustainable forest management. The wood is selected carefully by hand to ensure the best and most durable quality in production.
Why Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing antibacterial wood type. Its light, elegant colour and well-defined grains makes oak a safe choice for high-quality interior
Cleaning Use a clean soft brush or a microfiber cloth to wipe the wood gently for dust or small pieces of debris. For a more thorough cleaning, use a damp cloth dipped in a mix of natural dish soap and lukewarm water. If a dirty area is difficult to clean, you can scrub with a soft-bristled brush.
Maintenance Oak is a natural material. It comes untreated, which means that it will react to grease, colorants, changes in air humidity, moisture and water. Your product comes with a sanding sponge in case the surface rises slightly after cleaning or when unpacked. Follow these instructions:
1. Sand the surface in the direction of the grain. 2. After sanding, clean the surface with a damp cloth and dry it off with a kitchen towel. 3. It may take 1-2 repetitions before all grains are sanded down.
Extra finish We recommend to saturate the wood with soap or a furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to do this, make sure to use a suitable product – and be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
Note: Be careful when treating your product during months with extraordinary low air humidity, as it may cause minor fractures in the end grains.
Lastly, remember to retighten the table’s mounting bolts from time to time.
