The original version of the Oxford™ chair was designed for the
professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford. The chair’s extra tall
back served as a symbol of prestige and created a space of its own.
The “professor’s chair” later evolved into the Oxford series. In spite of
initial protests and uproar over the commission of a foreign moderist,
Arne Jacobsen received an honorary doctorate from Oxford, upon
completion of the project. This ground breaking example of total design is,
today, considered Arne Jacobsen’s most outstanding work.
The shell is made of laminated molded sliced veneer. It comes fully upholstered and is available with a low, medium or high back with armrests. the base is made of satin polished aluminum and is available with tilt, adjustable height and wheels for either hard or soft floors.
