The Safari Chair is one of the world's first examples of "build-it-yourself furniture" and is the best-known and best-selling piece of furniture by Kaare Klint: the founder of the Danish furniture design tradition and a man who was often inspired by earlier eras and other cultures. Thus arose the Safari Chair in 1933 after Klint had seen in a travel guidebook for Africa a picture of the chair of a British officer. One of the first models of the chair was acquired by Arne Jacobsen, who immediately recognized the potential of this simple and functional design.

Care Oiled wood:
The ensure the maintenance of your furniture in the best possible quality oiling every six months is recommended. For daily maintenance, the use of a soft, moist wrung cloth with clean water is recommended. Please avoid using detergents or chemicals.

Leather 'Thor':
The leather 'Thor' is a semi-aniline leather with a natural grain and coated surface. This leather can be cleaned with a mild soap and lukewarm. For stubborn stains, use foam soap flakes and wipe the entire surface with a clean, soft cloth. Allow to dry.

The canvas covers should be never be cleaned in a washing machine or with water, as this makes the fabric soft and thus leads to a loss of stability.
