Timeless office chair by Arne Jacobsen. The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors at St Catherine’s College in Oxford. The tall back of the chair was a symbol of prestige and created a space of its own. Initially there were protest over commissioning a foreign modernist, but on completion of the project Jacobsen received an honorary doctorate from Oxford. This outstanding example of total design is considered Arne Jacobsens most outstanding work.
With a seat shell made of laminated moulded sliced veneer, the Oxford chair is available with a low, medium or high back and with or without armrests. Pricing example is for an Oxford chair with a low back and armrests, please see pdf in Product Downloads for all models available or enquire for details.
