About this brand: Fritz Hansen
Fritz Hansen
Fritz Hansen started his company October 24, 1872 in Copenhagen, specializing in the manufacture of small furniture parts. In 1915 the first Danish chair in steam bentwood was launched at a new factory in Allerød, north of Copenhagen. It was an immediate success. In the mid-20s Fritz Hansen started a serious and productive teamwork with leading furniture designers. This kind of teamwork has characterized Fritz Hansen ever since. The cooperation with architect Arne Jacobsen began in 1934. However, it was the laminated wooden chair, the Ant, from 1952 that became the biggest success in Danish furniture history. The cooperation with Jacobsen generated a number of laminated chairs but also other world acclaimed furniture such as the Egg and the Swan from 1958. Fritz Hansen has continued working with designers which has resulted in many epoch-making pieces of furniture in the 1960s and 70s. Since then Fritz Hansen has continually added new furniture to its collection.

Description

The original version of the Oxford™ chair was designed for St. Catherine’s College in Oxford, in 1963. When the Dean of St. Catherine’s College chose Arne Jacobsen to build an extension for the college, he was also commissioned to design 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. This groundbreaking example of total design is, today, considered Arne Jacobsen's most outstanding work. The Oxford chair has been revitalized and now it looks more like the original tall, wooden chair. The chair is available with a tall, medium and low back and in a lounge model. It comes in a wide range of fabric and leather upholstery, with or without arms, with or with castors. This model - 3273 - is medium back, fixed height (seat height 48cm), with arms, on 'toe' base.
