Kaare Klint Safari Footstool KK97170

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 footstool 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 means it adapts to both the floor on which it is placed, as well as to the person sitting on it. 

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

Construction: The Safari footstool's wood frame is available in either natural ash or smoked ash, both with an oil finish. Covers are available in four colors of canvas or hide leather.
