About this item

Originally produced in the mid-1960s these chairs are a development of Børge Jensen & Sønner’s ‘Safari’ chair into a more comfortable and beautifully appointed lounge chair. Featuring a cross bar at the top (an addition to the original chair design) along with a weighted head/neck cushion trimmed in aniline leather the chairs also benefit from a cushion infill to offer greater comfort in the seat. They are very rare and I have not seen a pair in this format ever featured for sale anywhere on the internet.

Produced by Bernstorffsminde Møbelfabrik in Denmark in the late 1960s the chairs feature Børge Jensen’s beautifully crafted trademark finger joints and are constructed of bent Beech wood and heavy oatmeal canvas. The chair also comes complete with the original leather straps beneath the seat and can be disassembled with ease by Virtue of the countersunk bolts. The woodwork has been completely renovated and the original upholstery is in excellent condition having been removed and cleaned.

They are a stunning centrepiece, beautifully designed and very comfortable. A Classic example how design should work; a simple structure with a simple sling that allows space around the form to highlight the excellent joinery work.
