The Oxford chairs were first designed as tall, wooden chairs exclusively for the professors at St. Catherine's College in Oxford. Two years later, in 1965, the Oxford chairs were upholstered and put into production.
Forty years after introduction, the Oxford chairs have been reshaped according to the curves and dimensions of Arne Jacobsen's original design. The result is a slimmer, more beautiful and comfortable chair with a unique sculptured look.
The Oxford collection is available in various configurations with a tall or low back. The collection is perfect for the office, conference, lounge or in the private home.
Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. His cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. The Ant and Series 7 chairs, produced in 1952, propelled both Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 50's Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, which introduced the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300 to the design world. Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. His furniture and other design work have become a national and international heritage.
