About 013 Osa Outdoor Dining Table

The Osa Outdoor Dining Table designed by Henrik Tjaerby for Vaarnii. The innovative heat-treated pine is stronger, lighter, and better suited to withstand the elements than its indoor alternative. Henrik Tjaerby’s design uses a standardised T shaped section and minimal components in a modular system. The ingenuity of construction means that Osa Tables and Benches can be span great lengths. Osa is an explicitly functional design that is robust, resilient and adaptable. All Vaarnii products are made locally by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pinewood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests. Vaarnii's outdoor products are made of heat-treated pine, Lunawood ThermoWood®. Thermowood is a non-toxic material produced by using only heat, and steam. The heat treatment makes the furniture weatherproof, so no other surface treatment is required. If you wish, you can treat your Osa furniture with natural wood finishes for the exterior (such as decking oil), which can help keep the product clean.  Once unboxed, products will start reacting with UV light very quickly and begin changing color towards a beautiful silver tone. They will reach their final color after approximately one year outdoors. Contact us for a sample piece of the aged thermowood. Although Vaarnii's pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
