Safari chair by Kaare Klint for Carl Hansen

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 ash wood, available in oiled or smoked stain finish. Seat and back in canvas in only natural colour.  Seat and back aslo available in Thor 301, Thor 307, Thor 325 or Thor 322 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.
