The safari chairs in the couple's photos were likely based on Indian Roorkhee Chairs used by the British military - possibly the first examples of self-assembled furniture.

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.

Klint delved into simplifying, clarifying and refining the chair's composition, exhibiting his final Safari Chair design in 1933 at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition. 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 chair is made of solid wood and features a canvas or leather seat and back. The armrests are produced in saddle leather.

  • Kaare Klint

    Kaare Klint (1888-1954), the man behind classics such as the Safari Chair and the Faaborg Chair, is considered the father of Danish furniture design. For Kaare Klint, the son of architect Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint, exposure to architecture was a natural part of his early development. However, it was primarily as a furniture designer that Kaare Klint made his mark on Danish architecture. Kaare Klint was born in 1888 in Frederiksberg and designed his first furniture in 1914, for the Faaborg Museum. From the beginning, Klint's furniture was characterized by harmony between his choice of form and materials, often inspired by earlier styles or other cultures.
