Safari Chair by Kaare Klint for Rud, Rasmussen

About the Item

Iconic original safari chair by professor Kaare Klint. Designed 1927. This version dates to the 1960s and is executed in solid ash. Nice patina to the wood, and left unrestored. The canvas elements are newer, and made exactly as the original design was made in Denmark. The canvas is a substantial blend of cotton, linen and hemp fibers. Newly replaced as well are the underside (for lateral stability) leather straps with brass hardware however we left the original patinated leather armrests . A fantastic design.
