It's nice to put your feet up every now and then. So why not do it in style with the Wegner inspired Ox Chair Ottoman? An accompaniment to our reproduction of the impressive Wegner Ox Chair, the ottoman also serves as a handy seat. Upholstered in top grain aniline leather or luxury cashmere, the stool has a polished stainless steel base.
The story behind the Ox Chair
Hans J. Wegner was fascinated by Pablo Picasso. He designed the Ox Chair in 1960 in homage to the sculptural quality of his idol's work. Unfortunately, the world wasn't quite ready for such a radical chair and production stopped in 1962. It began again in 1985 and this time received the celebration it so rightly deserved. The Ox Chair has since won many prestigious awards and is exhibited worldwide.
