KK47000 | Safari chair


Kaare Klint, 1933

The KK47000 Safari Chair designed by Kaare Klint for Carl Hansen & Søn is an easy chair with structure in oil treated light.

Klint designed his Safari Chair in 1933 and was inspired by the English officers chair he had seen in a travel guide from Africa to create a lightweight, portable armchair. While inspired by its British predecessor, Klint’s sophisticated, lightweight chair is defined by his signature systematic approach, fine craftsmanship, well-conceived proportions, and remarkable material effects.

The archetype featured glue-less joints, tool-free assembly, and an intelligent construction that caused the joints to tighten when the chair was occupied, enhancing strength and stability

The chair is made of solid wood and features a canvas or leather seat and back. The armrests are produced in saddle leather.

Dimensions: H80 x W57 x D57 cm
