Virkelyst Chair 2,299 usd
Designed by SAYS WHO
Virkelyst is a series of modern outdoor furniture with the seating comfort of indoor furniture. The simple wooden frame strikes a contrast with the thick, soft cushions. Able to withstand wind and weather, the upholstery fabrics are Oeko-Tex certified and extremely colour and lightfast as well as water and dirt-repellent and even mildew-resistant. The cushion dries quickly even after heavy downpour, as the foam has an open-cell structure that allows both water and air to pass through.
Note: In 2022 we have upgraded our cushions for the Virkelyst Collection to an open-cell filling, which gives the cushions a more angular look.
Please note that the rented furniture can be either new or patinated. Teak patinates beautifully over time and has the same value both new and used.

- Material & product care
Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia, Central and South America. Our FSC-certified teak comes from Central America, Brazil and Indonesia, while our non-certified teak comes from plantations in Southeast Asia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy wood type. The high content of natural oils makes it highly resistant and it is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
Do a general cleaning when needed with a suitable wood cleaner and soft bristle brush. Rinse afterwards with water and let it dry for 24 hours. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after use with a dry cloth.
As the wood is untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn a beautiful silvery grey. If you wish to preserve or intensify the original honey-golden colour, use a suitable furniture oil on a regular basis. The wood is resistant to everyday wind and weather with or without treatment due to the high content of natural oils.
The product is resistant to all types of weather, all year round. However, if possible, we recommend storing the furniture in an unheated room during the winter months.
Remember to re-tighten the screws once in a while.
Agora Panama is Oeko-Tex certified and solution-dyed acrylic fabrics used for upholstering our cushions and pillows. The acrylic fibre we use is a synthetic but cotton-like fabric with world-class features for outdoor usage, making it:
- Extremely colour and lightfast
- Water and dirt repellent
- Free from harmful substances
Wipe the fabric with a firmly wrung cloth. In case of more obstinate stains, remove the upholstery and machine wash it at 30° C. If the upholstery is not removable, the textile must only be washed with a wrung cloth.
Quickdry Outdoor Foam
Quickdry Outdoor Foam has an open cell structure which allows both water and air to pass through freely. This makes the cushion dry exceptionally quickly – even after being soaking wet – with little to no need of maintenance. Moreover, the foam provides a firm and comfortable texture which remains the same year after year.
If exposed to heavy rain, we recommend placing the cushions upright for quick drainage. Soon after, the cushion will be dry and the cushion can be used again.
Fibre Wadding is used as an instrument to obtain the intended aesthetic expression as well as reaching the right comfort level in the cushions. Wadding is made of carded thin polyester fibres and is mainly used in Skagerak cushions as a secondary filling.
