Care instructions

All our products are born with a timeless vocation defended by the form, the technical solution and the careful selection of materials. A material culture that we have been defending for more than 35 years. The selection of the right materials is an important part of our creative process. As we are editors and do not rely on machinery, we put special emphasis on the lifecycle of our products and only work with materials that age well. In some materials, as they are treated by hand, one by one, you may find details that make them unique. This is part of their beauty.

General care instructions

The environment and climate are factors that can affect the durability and appearance of our products. Avoid placing them anywhere with direct exposure to the sun or in spaces where they could suffer from large fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

Try to remove dust with lint-free microfibre cloths, feather dusters or brushes.

Try to use as little water as possible. We do not recommend the use of abrasive cleaners or solvents as they may wear away the finish.

Wood is a noble and durable material that ages well if it is properly treated. Its nature makes it sensitive to the environment, especially sudden changes in temperature or exposure to the sun.

For cleaning, we recommend using a soft, slightly damp cloth. If required, neutral soap can be used. It is important to always move in the direction of the grain. Remove spilled liquids immediately to avoid stains.

Waxed

To maintain or repair this material, colourless wax can be applied once a year. Apply it to the entire surface until a uniform layer is achieved, wait until it gets dry and rub with a clean cloth until the desired shine.

Our cardboard and washi paper shades create a warmth that we feel very much at home with. As they are delicate materials, it is important that you treat them in this way, removing dust with a dry cloth. To remove marks, use a white eraser, without pressing.

Natural: linen and cotton

Dust on the fabric can be removed with a soft cloth or brush in less accessible areas. If the material is affected by the appearance of stains, use a dry foam and, if it remains, make circular movements with a damp cloth.

Synthetic: polyester and nylon

It is usually enough to dampen a soft cloth with warm water. In some cases it may be necessary to use neutral soap. It is very important not to apply ammonia products, solvents or abrasives to the fabric as this could damage it.

We recommend dusting with a dry cloth or a feather duster, never granulate as this could cause scratches on the surface. It is also important that the movements are gentle and careful, without rubbing, avoiding possible scratches.

Painting

We recommend removing dust regularly and, in case of stains, use cloth with a non-abrasive cleaner or neutral soap.

Anodised aluminium

This finish ensures resistance to corrosion and abrasion. If stains appear, try to clean with water and, if necessary, add neutral soap.

Plastic is a durable material and, if well cared for, can have a long life. Chemicals such as chloride, acetone or degreasers accelerate its ageing and may cause it to yellow. The best solution is to wipe off dust and light stains with a damp cloth or soft paper. If any residue remains, you can add neutral soap.
