This Safari Chair is one of the first pieces of Danish modern design from one of the masters of the era, Kaare Klint. Rud Rasmussen’s factory is still in business in the Norrebro neighborhood of Copenhagen and still crafts these chairs in the same way they have since the 1930s.
The Danish modern Safari Chair was designed by Kaare Klint in 1933.
The exposed oak frame uses the support of doweled rods, slung leather, and brass buckled straps. The backrest pivots for additional comfort.
The original burnt red leather provides a rustic, organic patina.
