A very rare pair of Danish Mid Century Børge Jensen & Sønner ‘Safari’ lounge chairs
First designed and produced in the mid 1960’s these chairs are a development by the original manufacturer of Børge Jensen & Sønner’s ‘Safari’ chair into a more comfortable and beautifully appointed lounge chair. Featuring a cross bar at the top (a development to the original chair design made by the manufacturer) 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 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 of how great design should work; a simple structure with a simple sling that allows space around the form to highlight the excellent joinery work.
