Oksen chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen.

Oksen, which means 'Bull' in Danish, is a bold and powerful lounge chair originally designed in 1966 and re-launched by Fritz Hansen 2017. 

It took Jacobsen five years to develop and perfect the Oksen lounge chair. Many of Jacobsens earlier designs such as the Egg and Swan chairs, have rounded, wholly organic shapes. Oksen on the other hand has a much sharper outline and angular form. It is described the largest and most distinctive chair that Jacobsen ever designed. 

The Oksen lounge chair is available in three quality leather options:

Category 3: 
Wild - Black

Category 4:
Aura - Black or Walnut

Category 5: 
Grace - Black or Walnut

The swivelling star base is available in satin polished aluminium or black powder-coated aluminium. Available with or without automatic return function.
