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.
