With its supportive lowered backrest and sleek profile, the version of the low-backed Oxford Chair is a more understated piece than its taller cousin, but it is by no means a shy member of the household. Clad in sumptuous leather upholstery, with an ergonomically-designed seat with moulds to the shape of the human spine, it blends beauty and functionality effortlessly. And with a range of cool colours to choose from, it fits into almost any hard-working environment.
THE STORY BEHIND THE ARNE JACOBSEN OXFORD CHAIR LOW 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.
