Stool to assemble yourself
The KK97170 Safari Stool by Carl Hansen was designed by Kaare Klint's son Esben after the death of his father. Easy to assemble without tools, the stool is perfectly matched to the Safari Chair. The Kaare Klint Safari Chair from 1933 was one of the first chairs you could assemble yourself. The stool offers a comfortable place to rest and is flexible in the living area.
The four-legged stool is made of a frame of oiled ash wood. The seat is made of canvas from Kvadrat, 90% virgin wool and 10% nylon. Buckles made of natural leather keep the construction stable and are a refined detail. Both on its own and with the KK47000 Safari Chair, the practical and timeless stool becomes an eye-catcher in various home furnishings.
On the occasion of London Craft Week 2019, Carl Hansen, together with the traditional British manufacturer Hiut Denim, is releasing a new version of the stool, which meets the modern zeitgeist. The classic and timeless stool from Esben Klint is given a contemporary and urban touch with upholstery made of high-quality denim fabric that blends in perfectly with modern city apartments, for example.
"We believe in putting the best materials into the hands of highly qualified craftsmen to develop the best possible product. says David Hieatt, co-founder of Hiut Denim. "What particularly fulfilled the collaboration with Carl Hansen was that we all speak the same language. The products of Carl Hansen & Son, like those of Hiut Denim, are rooted in tradition, longevity, craftsmanship and of course the stories of people. We hope that Kaare Klint would have enjoyed seeing his designs dressed in one of the world's most popular fabrics. We look forward to showing the world our denim in a brand new context and sharing this exciting fusion of craft traditions."
