  • Description
    Kaare Klint Safari chair by Rud. Rasmussen. Kaare Klint designed this chair in 1940 . Being one of the world’s first ‘build-it-yourself’ pieces of furniture this easy chair is all about functionality. It can easily be assembled and disassembled without tools, making it ideal for being on the move. Inspired by a book: At the end of the 1920s, Kaare Klint read about the American cinematographer Marin Johnson and his wife’s impressive and dramatic travels in “Safari: A Saga of the African Blue.” The photographer and his wife spent a couple of years in Africa, documenting in photos and words the African wildlife and landscape. The book fascinated Kaare Klint, but what particularly caught his attention was an illustration of the couple’s safari home – a tent they used during expeditions – in the African landscape. In one picture, the couple could be seen comfortably reclining in simple camp chairs with canvas backs and seats, old officer chairs from London that could be folded together and easily transported from place to place.

    The chair is in good condition with some wear on the top of the backrest.
