W. Atelier Ventures Outdoors With Finely-crafted Teak Furniture From Gloster
Outdoor living is redefined with teak, craftsmanship and innovation by Gloster, the award-winning furniture brand from Germany that is partnering W. Atelier to bring its complete range of the finest outdoor furniture to Singapore. As a worldwide design leader in teak, woven, aluminium, stainless steel and outdoor lounge furniture, Gloster’s enduring furniture lasts as long as its brand which continues to innovate and collaborate with designers such as Henrik
Pedersen, Sebastian Herkner and Mark Gabbertas.
Each piece of Gloster furniture is made from teak that is sourced from the carefully- managed, Indonesian plantations of state-owned Perum Perhutani on the island of East Java. Teak has been the benchmark hardwood for fine outdoor furniture for more than 700 years – it is extremely hard-wearing, highly resistant to rotting and almost impervious to the effects of sun, rain, frost or snow due to its high natural oil content.
With a history that traces back to West Africa in 1960 and decades of fine-tuning teak furniture into enduring, beautifully buffed and naturally finished furniture for the outdoors, Gloster has outlasted many a competition – the result of using carefully selected logs with the fewest defects and fine craftsmanship at work. Human hands have created every rounded corner and every joint, which are strengthened with the use of kiln dried timber and modern wood-working machinery to provide the strongest means of joining the component parts together for the most perfect fit.
On the partnership, Mr Gani Atmadiredja, Managing Director of W. Atelier, shares: “Our partnership with Gloster allows our expanded range of luxury furniture and homeware furnishings to encompass even outdoor living which has been a prominent lifestyle choice for many homeowners in Singapore. We are proud to work with a leading brand that has spread its unparalleled designs and philosophy all over the world.”
Mr Lasse Noerbaek, Sales Director (EMEA & AP) at Gloster, says: “Singapore’s proximity to Gloster’s production setup in Indonesia leads us to enter a partnership with W. Atelier, a homegrown brand that has established strong affiliations in the luxury market. We hope to propel Gloster to become one of the leaders in the luxury outdoor furniture business in Asia.”
As life gets faster and more complex, the need for quality time and space - the freedom to be you - grows too. At Gloster we open doors to timelessly beautiful exteriors where your furniture sets the mood, just the way you want it to be. And we take the long view, using only the very best materials and techniques available. Our aim is your pleasure - to be enjoyed in countless special moments outdoors.
With offices world-wide and our own manufacturing facility in Indonesia, Gloster’s roots can be traced all the way back to West Africa in 1960, where a band of passionate entrepreneurs and furniture makers took the first steps on a long journey. Today, the same passion, conviction and pride that launched the Gloster brand, continues to fuel our business. We may live in a different world than the one occupied by our founders, but one thing remains the same - we are furniture makers whose sole focus is to design and build the world’s finest outdoor furniture.
About W. Atelier
