The name Nusantara (Nu-san-tara) originated from ancient Javanese Sanskrit when Indonesia was known as the powerful empire Majapahit. Today Nusa –means island, and Antara-means other. Put together the word “Nusantara” means Archipelago. This unique archipelago is home to the world’s finest quality teak. Nusantara-Teak utilizes 100% naturally aged, kiln dried, premium recycled teak to proudly craft our prestigious designs created to enhance your lifestyle. Recycled or re-claimed teak is much richer, stable, and has the least environmental impact compared to new cut timber used by most other manufacturers.
Nusantara-Teak is a new design concept that was founded by Kyle Barnett whilst studying architecture at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, 2004. He later brought the concept back to his native Canada where the initial prototypes were completed in 2006 and endured vigorous product testing to determine the best possible materials for construction.
2008 - Production initiated from the back of a surfboard manufacturing warehouse in New Zealand and marketing continued for the next three years in some of the world’s harshest climates. The first Nusantara-Teak design, the Dreamweaver Hammock Set, was rigorously tested with extreme U.V. rays and torrential downpours. As testament to the quality of our design and materials those hammocks still receive great customer reviews today.
2011 - Nusantara-Teak moved its headquarters to Bali, Indonesia and further improved their design by integrating teak construction facilities in Central Java, Indonesia where the world’s finest teak plantations exist.
2015 - Nusantara-Teak incorporated another astounding product the double and single size Skyweaver Air Chair. This suspended design offers the same great comfort, style and durability as its predecessor, although in the shape of a reclining, suspended chair.
2017 - Nusantara-Teak joined the global retail markets in the U.S.A., Canada and Australia. Further product development introduced the Kono XL and Kono Deluxe Lounger along with the Lanai Picnic Table series.
2018 - Nusantara-Teak further expands sales into Europe and adds to its product line with mixed mediums merging steel and teak with the flexible rocking Santai Collection. The standard Santai with powder coat protection and the Executive Santai fashioned with Stainless Steel.
With premium, solid recycled teak construction and natural-low maintenance finishing, each of Nusantara-Teak's unique products are suitable for all environments. Adequately robust to handle any outdoor extreme conditions, yet sophisticated so they may enhance any indoor space.
Nusantara-Teak is now offering wholesale marketing to retail outlets and hotels/resorts around the globe. We take pride in providing premium comfort and continue to work with our clients to improve and create new designs. Sustainability continues to be a key element in all of our designs, while we only source the finest materials, and pay close attention to detail.Download Sales Proposal
