Description

Skovshoved Møbelfabrik’s OGK safari chair shares the same simple aesthetics as the OGK daybed, both designed in the 1960s by Ole Gjerløv-Knudsen. The convenient chair comes in a linen bag with a shoulder strap and it’s fast and easy to assemble – no screws or tools are needed. The frame is made of soaped beech and the cover is natural linen. The twisted sisal ropes and long back legs are an essential part of the structure and double as beautiful details. The OGK safari chair is perfect for lounging in any space – living room, bedroom, terrace and outdoors.
