- Material and 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.
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.
FR Outdoor Textile
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. The textile must not be machine washed.
The textile is FR treated and approved for UK markets.
FR Cold Foam
Cold foam is a form stable foam with high elastic properties, which makes it a good choice for cushions and pads. The foam provides a firm and comfortable support. If the material is used in an outdoor cushion, the cushions must be stored in a dry environment out of season, to prolong the lifespan of the product.
To prevent mildew, it is important that the cushions are completely dry before storing indoor or in a dry basement during the winter.
The foam is FR treated and approved for UK markets.
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 type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly weather and rot resistant and 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 clear water and let it dry. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after dinner and such with a dry cloth.
As the wood is untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey colour. If you wish to preserve or intensify the original honey-golden colour, use a suitable furniture oil on a regular basis. No matter what you choose, the wood will be resistant to everyday wind and weather thanks to the high content of natural oils.
During winter we advise you to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
The wood has been dried for outdoor use. Hence, if you wish to use the furniture indoors it may need to be re-tightened once in a while.

About the designer / SAYS WHO
Nikolaj Duve and Kasper Meldgaard gain inspiration from the Danish designers of the 1950s. Their style is present-day and thought through down to the smallest detail, although strongly rooted in the simplicity, minimalism and function of the Scandinavian design tradition. As the name Says Who indicates, the two designers are their willing to challenge conventional expectations. As often as they can get away with it, they ask ‘Says Who?’, and are pleased about the direct invitation to get involved that lies in the question.
