Exclusively available at The Conran Shop, Kaare Klint’s Safari Chair is now available in this limited edition thanks to a unique collaboration between Carl Hansen & Søn and Hiut Denim Co.
Kaare Klint was spurred on to design the Safari Chair in 1933, after being inspired by Indian Roorkhee Chairs used by the British military that he spotted in pictures of African safaris.
Light and very functional with an elegant silhouette, the chair boasts a solid ash frame consisting of just 11 components. Easily assembled and disassembled without the use of tools, this chair is the epitome of fine craftsmanship, well-conceived proportions, and remarkable materials.
Beautifully finished with saddle leather armrests, the chair and its removable cushion are upholstered in organic artisan-crafted Hiut Denim Co. denim for a truly unique twist on a classic design.
Based in the Welsh town of Cardigan, Hiut Denim Co. is celebrated for regenerating the forgotten denim industry in the area. For three decades Cardigan was home to a vast denim factory, until its closure left hundreds unemployed. After it’s reopening in 2012, today the factory creates a selection of just 120 pairs of internationally renowned, organic, artisan-crafted denim jeans per week, breathing new life into the town and awarding it a well-earned place on the design map of the UK.
