The OGK Safari collection was designed by Ole Gjerløv-Knudsen in 1962. It was designed for his son who was going camping. When his son had a sore throat, this caring father designed the saw bench so his son wouldn't shiver on the bare ground. The daybed can be used for many things: sunbathing, decorating, etc., but it's also highly recommended as an excellent guest bed. It's great for sunbathing in the garden, practical for the teenager's bedroom, great for playing Playstation, decorative on the boat deck and many other places where this little design gem can come in handy.
The daybed and armchair come in a linen bag with a shoulder strap. Easy to transport and assemble
