THE STORY BEHIND THE ARNE JACOBSEN OXFORD CHAIR HIGH BACK
Originally conceived as the 'professor's chair' in 1963, for the academics of St. Catherine's College, the Oxford Chair series is one of Arne Jacobsen's most enduringly-popular office chair designs. Despite his decades of service to interior design, there was uproar amid the traditionalist academics at Oxford that Jacobsen, a Danish modernist, was commissioned to produce a design for the university. But the result was deemed so brilliant and groundbreaking that he was rewarded with an honourary doctorate.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Arne Jacobsen was one of Denmark's most influential modern designers and a pioneer of minimalist Danish style. Part genius, part visionary, his creations included furniture, lighting, textiles and silverware. But he is best known for his elegant yet functional chair designs, the most famous of these being The Egg Chair, The Swan Chair, The Series 7 Chair and The Ant Chair. All Arne Jacobsen products complement each other perfectly, allowing you to mix, match and create your own unique style.
