Designed by Arne Jacobsen, 1965 - Relaunched in 2016
From professor's chair to an office chair - Arne Jacobsen's Oxford™ reflects a timeless design piece.
Designed by Arne Jacobsen
Arne Jacobsen originally designed the Oxford™ chair for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford in 1965. When Arne Jacobsen was chosen to build an extension for the college, he was also commissioned to design the surrounding landscape and a furniture series. The chair’s extra tall back served as a symbol of prestige and created a space of its own. This ground-breaking example of total design is, today, considered Arne Jacobsen’s most outstanding work. The Oxford chair comes in two designs, Classic and Premium. The Oxford Classic is available in a high, medium or low back and comes in a wide range of fabric and leather upholsteries, with or without arms and with or without castors, toes or glides.
