Fritz Hansen Oxford Classic High Back Armchair with Swivel Base on Castors

Fritz Hansen Oxford Classic High Back Armchair with Swivel Base on Castors

Designed by Arne Jacobsen, the Oxford Classic High Back Armchair with Swivel Base on Castors is one of the world’s most renowned designs and is integral to the Fritz Hansen collection. The Oxford Classic High Back Armchair with Swivel Base on Castors is as wonderfully comfortable today as it was back in 1965.

The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford, in 1963. When the Dean of St. Catherine’s College chose Arne Jacobsen to build the college, he was also commissioned to design the surrounding landscape and a furniture series for the college. 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 modernist, Arne Jacobsen received an honorary doctorate from Oxford, upon completion of the project.
