OXFORD Classic

OXFORD Classic


Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1965

The original version of the Oxford™ chair was designed for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford. The chair’s extra tall back served as a symbol of prestige and created a space of its own. The “professor’s chair” later evolved into the Oxford series. In spite of initial protests and uproar over the commission of a foreign moderist, Arne Jacobsen received an honorary doctorate from Oxford, upon completion of the project. This ground breaking example of total design is, today, considered Arne Jacobsen’s most outstanding work.

The OxfordTM Classic chair is made of moulded sliced veneer. It comes fully upholstered and is available with a low or medium back height, with or without armrests. The fully upholstered shell is available in a wide range of fabric and leather types. The base can be configured with either double-castors with aluminium caps and black plastic housing (height adjustable with tilt mechanism) or black-grey plastic toes (fixed seat height with spring function). The base comes in two finishes; satin polished aluminium (standard) or mirror chrome.
