Gloster Outdoor Furniture
The furniture manufacturer Gloster has been driven since the 1860s to produce the best outdoor furniture in the world. Gloster specialises in the processing of teak - a high-quality, fine-grained hardwood which thanks to its high proportion of natural oils is extremely weather-resistant. In the 1970s, the Gloster factory moved to Indonesia, where the furniture manufacturer maintains its own teak plantations, thus guaranteeing sustainable cultivation and the high quality of each tree trunk. A guarantee of high quality, which is reflected in their furniture production: Gloster furniture is not the result of serial mass production, but is always the result of skilled craftsmanship - its production is based on the expertise and experience of the employees. In addition to the first-class workmanship of the materials, Gloster furniture impresses with its functional simplicity, generous elegance and versatility. The Gloster portfolio covers a broad spectrum: from complex, modular sofas to tables, armchairs and chairs, the company have the perfect outdoor furniture for every space and every occasion.
Teak ages in a natural way outdoors, adopting a soft, silver-green tone. Thus it is sufficient to thoroughly clean Gloster furniture once or twice a year with a suitable cleaning agent. Polished teak is particularly suitable for indoor use and can be occasionally refreshed and cleaned with the appropriate cleaning agent. The surface structure and a rich colour are preserved with polished teak - outdoors it develops as with untreated teak. The Gloster care products can be ordered from smow upon request.
Through operating its own teak plantations in Indonesia, Gloster guarantees a sustainable, respectful approach to nature and its resources. Every tree planted for furniture production has been specially planted by an employee, has reached a minimum age of 35 years and is tested for its individual structure and quality before felling.
Gloster also relies on sustainability for their covers: the colours granite, sapphire and anthracite are woven from recycled yarns, which also bequeath the works an interesting visual charachter.
