A pair of safari chairs designed by Kaare Klint for Rud Rasmussen furniture makers of Copenhagen in great original condition. Kaare Klint designed the safari chairs in 1933. These iconic chairs are made of black stained ash and leather. They have been dismantled and cleaned. All the black stained ash has been fed with bees wax as has all the leather. All the stitches are intact as is the leather. There are no holes in the leather but it does of course have age related wear after 50 plus years of use which has given the leather a beautiful patina that only years of use can give. Kaare Klint (15 December 1888–28 March 1954) was a Danish architect and furniture designer, known as the father of modern Danish furniture design. Style was epitomized by clean, pure lines, use of the best materials of his time and superb craftsmanship. Rud. Rasmussen, also known as Rud. Rasmussens Snedkerier, was a manufacturer of wooden furniture based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The workshop was founded by Rudolph Rasmussen in 1869 and collaborated with some of the leading Danish furniture designers of the 20th century. Its former furniture factory at Nørrebrogade 45 was listed on the Danish registry of protected buildings and places in 2008. In the 1920s, Rud Rasmussen began to collaborate with architects such as Kaare Klint (from 1925) and Mogens Koch. It later also collaborated with Lagens Lassen, Børge Mogensen and Hans Wegner.s.
