Winner of the design competition orga- nised by Tectona in 2017, THINKK Studio was founded in 2008 in Bangkok by De- cha Archjanun and Ploypan Theerachai. Decha Archjanun, a graduate of ECAL, is drawn to form and design, whereas Ploypan Theerachai, who studied design in Sweden, is passionate about materials and is drawn to detail. Both firmly believe that design should adopt a technological approach backed by a solid understan- ding of manual techniques.
1. How to maintain your teak furniture?
It is strongly recommended to perform once a year a washing with water and a little washing powder or soap to rid your furniture of impurities. Teak wood is a wood for all terrains and climatic variations! Due to its density and the oil it secretes, teak is rot-proof. It does not need to be painted or oiled and is particularly suitable for outdoor use. It is also flexible enough to withstand climatic variations and adapt to the terrain.
2. How to preserve the original teak color ?
If your furniture has never been maintained, has not been cleaned once a year and has become grey, we recommend that you clean it with the Net Trol product to get rid of impurities, stains , mold and previous treatments. If your furniture has been maintained, we advise you to clean it with soapy water and a brush and then apply a layer of wood fixative that will delay the grey patina. This product is also effective against stains (table top).

Teak oil or linen oil are absolutely not effective, the durability of your furniture will not be lengthened. The varnish is useless.
