Rare post modern reclining Safari style armchair by Maurice Burke for Arkana Bath, England, 1970s Teak painted frame, chrome tubular steel with original black vinyl upholstery.
Dimensions- 720 h x 630 w x 630 d mm 330 seat h mm
Design/ origin- Small sized armchair with a big impact. This design interestingly crosses over with many other styles and influences. The most obvious being that of a Safari style chair like Kaare Klint. Sling constructed seat and arms, draped over the frame.
The striking black block colour is the other most notable feature. Making this chair have a great angular look with a bold statement.
The seat reclines as the vinyl upholstery moves along the tubular side rails. Making a very comfortable and low seat.
Condition- Overall condition is consistent with age. Most defects have been photographed. There are a few marks/ scuffs on the frame, see picture. Some slight corrosion on the underside of the chrome rails. There are two very small slits on the inside armrests, however these are very minor.
Vinyl is in great condition for it's age. Embossed makers stamp can be found on the underside.
