The Paxa outdoor furniture group is considered a masterpiece of materials and form. The table stands on two asymmetrical legs, each balancing the surface weight between them. The benches are designed in sections that combine seamlessly to form extended lengths. Available in smooth concrete or lightweight steel, the choice of legs can make the products appear more robust, or create a streamlined style. The tabletop and seating surfaces are crafted in oiled mahogany, oiled oak or painted pine.

Materials and surface treatments

Pine

Nola's pine is of high quality and comes from sustainable forestry. Pine is an environmentally friendly, domestically produced material. Damaged or untreated pine is quite easily attacked by decomposition processes; therefore, it is particularly important to repair damaged surfaces.

Mahogany - FSC-certified

FSC-marked mahogany is a wood with good durability in the outdoor environment. In addition, it retains its color tone better than, for example, oak and teak. Mahogany lives and moves, sometimes more than teak.

Oak

Oak is a heavy, hard and medium tough wood. Moderately dimensionally stable in case of moisture changes. Oak wood blackens if it is exposed to moisture or wetness for a long time. However, it does not affect the other properties of the wood. Thanks to its hardness and toughness, the oak wood is suitable for furniture and other use in exposed environments.

Wood oil

Wood oil provides good protection against the stresses of the outdoor climate and at the same time highlights the wood's natural appearance and properties.

Water-based glaze

Varnishing of wood is done with a water-based varnish. A water-based paint that is kinder to the environment. Under normal use, the paint has a good wear resistance and long durability.

Concrete

Concrete is cement mixed with crushed stone or aggregate. The material is very strong in compression but fragile in tension. To compensate for this concrete can be reinforced, often with steel. 

Coloured concrete

Colored concrete is concrete in a color other than standard grey. Pigment is added to the dry mixture, which means that the concrete becomes coloured throughout. Each color has its own recipe. 

Assembly and placement

Freestanding or attachable. The frames are prepared with boltholes for M16 bolts to attach the frame to the surface. Bolts are not included.

Maintenance

Oiled oak

Oiled oak should be oiled twice a year for best protection. Good maintenance can never completely prevent stains from occurring, but oak that is not maintained will turn blacker and turn gray faster, but it still has a very long life. When re-oiling products, a finely boiled oil that penetrates the wood should be chosen over a film-forming oil.

Oiled mahogany

Oiled mahogany should be oiled two times a year.

Water-based glazed pine

Products in varnished pine must be maintained regularly with alkyd paint. Maintenance intervals approximately 1 time per year. Damage and cracks should be repaired immediately. Touch-up paints in spray packaging are available in standard colors to order.

Concrete

Both normal concrete and fibre-reinforced concrete are sensitive to hard edge impacts. A concrete product that has been damaged can be repaired with polyester filler, such as the product “Plastic Padding”.

Coloured concrete

Products made of coloured concrete are washed with a pressure sprayer at low pressure. Damaged products can be repaired with a repair kit that is available to order.

Character

Although the Paxa furniture group is a striking in its use of materials and form, it has an understated character. Paxa is perfectly suited to contemporary architecture and modern outdoor environments.
