Taking its inspiration from surrealist paintings - and the work of Picasso in particular - Hans J. Wegner’s Ox Chair is considered to be one of his most iconic designs.

Powerful and sculptural in its design, the Ox Chair was originally launched in 1960, but was seen to be ahead of its time; the reason for production stopping just two years later. In 1989, however, Wegner collaborated with Erik Jørgensen to bring the chair back to life - using more modern technologies but still staying true to the essence of the original design, and appealing to a far wider audience at a time when the world was ready for his innovative ideas.

The Full Story

Recognised around the globe, the Ox Chair takes its name from its dramatic and masculine horned design. While they certainly make a statement, these horns aren’t just for show; instead, they were carefully planned by Wegner as one of many factors that provide users of this chair with a high level of both support and comfort.

While the horns allow the head and neck to be supported in a wide range of different seating positions, the chromium-plated steel frame is designed so that the chair has a naturally reclining position. Combined with the padded cushioning and the shape of the seat, these elements ensure that the Ox Chair is somewhere that allows you to sit in comfort in a wide range of different positions.

Incredibly sculptural in its design, the Ox Chair is available in a wide range of different fabrics and leathers, and a choice of different colours. It was Wegner’s belief that every chair (and he designed over 500 of them) should be aesthetically brilliant from all angles; it shouldn’t have a back that should be hidden away from view. The Ox Chair achieves this aim, and also reflects Wegner’s passion for combining modern and innovative designs with classic techniques and materials.

Despite its strong, imposing and masculine feel, the Ox Chair also retains a feeling of elegance and class; despite its shaky beginnings in the 1960s, it is now an iconic design that graces a huge number of homes across the world.
