Ox Armchair with Ottoman - Replica

Designed in 1960, the unique Ox Chair is known to be Hans J. Wegner’s personal favourite at home. Created to allow freedom of movement, the distinctive form of the chair follows the designer’s desire to make seating comfortable in many different ways. Regarded as the ‘grand master of chairs’, the talented Dane fed his inspiration from nature and its organic forms. The fun design resembles the powerful shape of a bull, stylised into a masterpiece of seating design. Hans J. Wegner enjoyed experimenting with different forms and in his own words: “We must take care that everything doesn’t get so dreadfully serious. We must play, but we must play seriously.” And with its combination of form, function and durability, his playful design proves exactly the above. Despite its sturdy look the chair is a light and solid, stable structure ensured by chromed steel supports.

We produce the unique Ox Chair with hand-sewn classic or premium leather in a choice of colours. The reliable base is made of chromed steel, which forms a delightful contrast with the upholstery.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner

Essential to assisting the international popularity of mid-century Danish design, Hans Jørgensen Wegner was born in southern Denmark in 1914. Skilled as an apprentice cabinet maker, Wegner attended the modernist-influenced Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Architectural Academy in Copenhagen.

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s style and vision is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist approach with emphasis on functionality. The Dane’s legacy is celebrated for his landmark approach to designing chairs, experimenting with minimalist shapes and overlapping frames. In his own words, Wegner enjoyed ‘stripping the old chairs of their outer style and letting them appear in their pure construction.’

Wegner received several major design prizes for his work, from the Lunning Prize in 1951 and the coveted Grand Prix of the Milan Triennale in the same year, to the Prince Eugen Medal in Sweden and the Danish Eckersberg medal. In 1959, he was impressively made honorary Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts in London, whilst his work exhibits within MoMA in New York and the Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
