kaare klint 97170 safari footrest
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 chair is by far Kaare Klint's most well know and sold piece. More than 100,000 pieces have been sold since it was first made in 1933.
Kaare Klint's Safari stool is one of the world's first 'build-it-yourself' furniture items and is all about functionality. It can easily be assembled and disassembled without tools, making it ideal for being on the move. It is shipped disassembled in a small card board box and can easily be assembled and disassembled without using any tools. The flexible construction of the stool means it adapts to both the floor it is placed on as well as the person sitting in it.
The Safari stool has a matching chair which is made after the exact same simple principle. It is offered in treated ash - either oiled or smoke stained. The seat is available in canvas or leather. Matching seat cushion with buttons can also be specified (please call to order seat cushion). Leg straps are in natural saddle leather.
