Kaare Klint designed the Safari chair in 1933 and was inspired by chairs he had seen an American cinematographer and his wife use on an African safari. He wanted to transform the portable, knockdown version into an elegant chair for modern interiors.
The Safari chair is a sophisticated and lightweight chair which clearly demonstrates Kaare Klint’s sense of proportions, fine craftsmanship and remarkable material combinations.
The frame is made from solid wood, available in ash (oiled) or smoked ash (oiled). Seat and back in canvas or leather. Armrests in natural saddle leather. Please see pdf’s in ‘Product downloads' for the different wood finishes and how to care for them, as well as the canvas and leathers available. All material samples are also available to view at our shop or showroom.
A matching Safari foot stool is also available.
