Safari chair, 1933

Safari chair by Kaare Klint for Carl Hansen + Son.

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.

In the early days, the company produced bespoke furniture – including everything from dining room sets to bedroom suites. As the company grew and times changed, however, it gradually began to produce smaller series of its most popular pieces. This combination of hand craftsmanship and rational series production soon became the firm’s hallmark – and continues to set it apart today.
