Stool to assemble yourself
The KK97170 Safari stool from 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 Safari Chair by Kaare Klint from 1933 was one of the first chairs to assemble yourself. The stool provides a comfortable place to rest while being flexible in the living area.
Made of ash, canvas and leather
The four-legged stool is made of a frame of oiled ash wood. The seat is made of Kvadrat's upholstery fabric Canvas made of 90% virgin wool and 10% nylon. Buckles made of natural leather keep the construction stable and are a refined detail. Both alone and with the KK47000 Safari Chair, the practical and timeless stool becomes an eye-catcher in various home interiors.
Limited edition in denim fabric
On the occasion of the London Craft Week 2019, Carl Hansen together with the traditional, British manufacturer Hiut Denim launches a new version of the stool, hitting the modern zeitgeist. With covers in high-quality denim fabric, the classic and timeless stool by Esben Klint gets a contemporary and urban touch that fits great in modern city apartments, for example.
"We believe in putting the best materials in the hands of highly skilled craftsmen to create the best possible product" , says David Hieatt, co-founder of Hiut Denim. "What made working with Carl Hansen particularly fulfilling is that we all speak the same language. Carl Hansen & Son's products, like Hiut Denim's, are rooted in tradition, longevity, craftsmanship and, of course, people's stories. We hope Kaare Klint would have enjoyed seeing his designs dressed in one of the world's most beloved fabrics. We look forward to showing the world our denim in a brand new context and sharing this exciting fusion of artisanal traditions."
