Kaare Klint Safari Chair KK47000

Kaare Klint designed the Safari chair and stool in 1933, inspired by a British officer's chair he had seen in a travel guide for Africa. The first models of the chair were sold to some of Kaare Klint's colleagues, such as Arne Jacobsen, who saw clear possibilities in the simple, functional style.

The Safari chair is one of the world ́s first build­-it­-yourself pieces of furniture, and a signature piece of Danish Design history. It is shipped disassembled in a small card board box and can easily be assembled and disassembled without using any tools. The flexible construction of the chair means it adapts to both the floor on which it is placed, as well as to the person sitting in it. 

Designer: Kaare Klint, 1933
Manufacturer: Carl Hansen & Son
Dimensions: 22.4"w | 22.4"d | 31.5"h | 13.4" seat height

Construction: The Safari chair's wood frame is available in either natural ash or smoked ash, both with an oil finish. Covers are made in four colors of canvas or hide leather. Arm straps can be ordered in natural saddle leather for both canvas and leather chairs, or stitched hide with the leather chairs. The cushion for the seat can be customized to include buttons for no additional charge. Matching safari footstool available.
