handling & care instruction
Step 1: Oil the top surface of the Himalayan salt blocks
Step 2: Heat slowly, at least the first time to prevent the salt from cracking. 20 min on low temperature and 20 min on medium before you reach the optimal cooking temperature.
Step 3: Optimal cooking temperature. Simply sprinkle some drops of water on the salt blocks. If they sizzles you are ready to go.
Step 4: Cook your food like on a normal cooking surface. use a metal kitchen tool, not plastic. You can leave the blocks on the barbecue and cook on the surface for several hours.
Step 5: After cooking, let it cool down completely to room temperature.
Step 6: Clean the blocks by scraping of any stuck matter and wipe clean with a sponge. Try to keep the blocks as dry as possible. The less water the better as water dissolves the salt.
Step 7: Store blocks in room temperature. Hand wash the metal holder using a mild dishwashing liquid and water. Do not put in dishwasher.
Note: The metal holder is 3mm thick and suitable for all heat sources. Please make sure your BBQ pro is heated on a flat surface to prevent any warping of the metal plate

BLUE comes with three amazing persian blue salt rock.
total weight is about 150grams.
persian blue rock salt is one of the rarest and most exclusive salts and is extracted from a salt mine in northern iran. the intriguing blue color occurs during the forming of the salt’s crystalline structure, as intense pressure is exerted on the salt deposits. the individual crystals fracture the light in an unusual way creating an optical illusion that makes the salt appear more or less shimmering blue.
initially quite present and then rather mild with a silken sweetness. highly popular with children for some reason!
ideal for seafood, salads, french cuisine & truffles

Wendy Legro and Maarten Collignon are the founders of Studio WM - a design studio based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Guided by all senses, their mission is to create seemingly simple designs that reflect the love that is put into them - and their details - for years to come. Their Wire design is available as a Dining chair and a low Lounge Chair. They both have the same light and airy appearance and the thin structure of the wire frame gives them a delicate feel, while also providing a fine contrast to any cushion you put on the dining chair - or the blankets, pillows and soft items you lay in the lounge version.
Studio WM explains, "The strength of metal gave us the freedom to push the boundaries and seek for the thinnest, most light construction to bring light into the design in a literal and figurative sense. The contrast between the thin metal wire and soft pillow evokes the urge to touch and use the product." The WM Chairs are very durable and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Dimensions: 19.7"W x 20.9"D x 31.5"H

Afteroom Bench is yet a supplement to the Afteroom Chair, constituting the same concept - a tribute to Bauhaus and functionalism - reducing the amount of material to a minimum and enhancing the aesthetic appearance to a maximum. Often a side table will be seen next to a bench; so why not, logically, transform the two into one piece? By changing the backrest into a plate, the result is more than stylish.
