Set of two ‘Oxford’ chairs by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen
The original version of the ‘Oxford’chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen for the professors from St. Catherine’s College, Oxford, in 1963. The extra high back of the chair became a symbol of prestige, enabling it to become its own space. The “professor chair” was later developed into the Oxford series. This innovative example of total design is considered to be Arne Jacobsen’s best work.
The chairs are upholstered in purple wool fabric with a chrome-plated metal base. The chair has a fixing to the floor under the foot cover.
