Skargaarden’s Kryss lounge chair was created in the 1970s when designer Björn Hultén was commissioned to design the interior of the Swedish embassy in Cairo. For the embassy’s rooftop terrace he designed a series of foldable wooden chairs that were inspired by his visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo: the Kryss chair’s design is a reference to a chair he saw there, made of ebony and decorated with gold and ivory, that was found in Tutankhamun’s tomb.
The teak Kryss chairs are perfect not only for diplomats but also for terraces, patios and gardens of regular homes. The Sunbrella Solid fabric of its seat and backrest is ideal for outdoor use and due to its foldable structure, the safari-style chair can easily be stored away for winter. If you live in a warmer climate where it does not snow in the winter, you can even leave the chairs outside all year round! As is typical of outdoor teak furniture, the chair will eventually weather to a distinguished silvery grey.
