Oxford Premium chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen.

The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors at St Catherine’s College in Oxford in 1965. 

Fritz Hansen re-designed the Oxford chair in 2016, creating a new version called the Oxford Premium. The Oxford Premium has a 3-layer foam upholstery that, combined with a wider seat, makes it particularly comfortable, and horizontal stitching lines that highlight the design. 

The Oxford Premium chair has a seat shell made of moulded sliced veneer, fully upholstered in 3 layers with horizontal stitching. It is available with a low or medium high back, both with armrests. The fully upholstered shell is available in a wide range of fabric and leather types. 

The base is made of satin polished aluminium and is available in a fixed height (with toes), or adjustable height (with 5 castors). Chairs with fixed seat height have a spring function. Chairs with adjustable height have a tilt mechanism.
