Oxford Task Chair with Arms - Low Back

Designed by:  Arne Jacobsen
Manufactured by:  Fritz Hansen

The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford. The “professor’s chair” later evolved into the Oxford series with a low, medium or high back. 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 veneer either covered with PU foam and upholstered with fabric or leather. The base is satin polished aluminum fixed height with a 5-star swivel and a spring function. Price includes shipping to the USA. Manufactured by Fritz Hansen.

Designed in 1963.

Additional options are available for automatic return, leather padded arms, mirror chromed base and arms, or glides.  Please contact Switch Modern for specific information (404-605-0196 or info@switchmodern.com).
