With the KK47000 Safari Chair, Klint effortlessly transformed an historical archetype into a modern, collapsible chair made of ash wood. 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. Due to its elegant design, this strong and stable chair is perfect for contemporary interiors.
KK47000 Safari Chair by Kaare Klint |
Kaare Klint´s KK47000 Safari Chair is a refinement of the chairs brought on an African safari by an American cinematographer and his wife. They were most likely based on Indian Roorkhee Chairs used by the British military - possible the first examples of self-assembled furniture.
The orignal featured glueless joints, tool-free assembly, and an intelligent construction that caused the joints to tighten when the chair was occupied, enhancing strenght and stability.
Klint focused on simplifying, clarifying and refining the lounge chair´s composition, exhibiting his final Safari Chair design in 1933 at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers´ Guild Exhibition.

THOR Leather |
The leather type "Thor" is a semi-aniline ox hide with a natural grain and a coated surface.
More uniform hides are chosen for this type of leather. It has a largely uniform surface structure with some visible scars or other marks.
After aniline dying, a pigmentation coat is added to give perfect color uniformity. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer.
This type of leather has a good touch and low breathability.
The advantages of "Thor" leather are that it requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight.
CHS recommends this type of leather for homeowners who want a good balance between maintenance and comfort.
