Kaare Klint safari chair with new aniline leather upholstery, patinated ash frame
A Danish midcentury safari chair by Kaare Klint (1888-1954). Black upholstery with black leather armrests and natural leather straps between the legs.
Kaare Klint was inspired by the chairs an American photographer and his wife used while on a safari in Africa. The chairs were presumably inspired by Indian Roorkhee chairs which were used by the British army. These type of chairs were amongst the first examples of build-self furniture.
The cushion has cold foam filling. The upholstery is made from Nevada aniline leather by Danish CAMO leathers A/S. NEVADA is a full-grain, vacuum-tanned, smooth aniline leather. The hide is firm, but supple with an exceptional grain. The best choice when looking for Saddle-type leather. Visible insect bites, healed
wounds and fat stripes contribute to the exclusive look. Cromfree tanned – made without the use of PCP and CFC, which are harmful to the enviroment.
Raw material: Grain leather from South German cattle hides.
All CAMO leather is dyed through.
Aniline leather has none or only a light surface treatment which preserve the leather’s natural surface and soft touch. All natural markings will be visible on aniline leather which contributes to the leather’s exclusive appearance. The light surface treatment makes the leather breath and comfortable to sit in. On the other hand this kind of leather is very susceptible to dirt and will in time become a little darker. Only raw material from the best selection is used for aniline leather. In aniline leather it is possible to see the hair follicle in the grain.
The frame is made from ash and is in original and patinated condition.
There is no glue used to assemble the chair. The joints of the chair tightens when sitting in it.
