Oxford Low Back Chair with 4-star base

by Arne Jacobsen from Fritz Hansen

oxford low back chair with 4-star base

Design Arne Jacobsen, 1965
Fabric or leather, pressure molded veneer, die-cast aluminum
Made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen

Originally designed by Arne Jacobsen as a chair for professors at St. Catherine's College in Oxford, England, the Oxford™ chair returns to its original form in a new and faithful rendition of the classic design. The flexible yet comfortable task chair works as well in a home office or dining room as it does in a meeting room or public space.

The Oxford™ chair returns to its roots, putting modern technology to work to ensure comfort and craft unite on the traditional task chair. While the reworked chair retains the same silhouette, available with a low or tall backrest, the minimalist design has been updated with increased lumbar support for superior sitting comfort.

The new, extended seat delivers a more natural sitting posture, while the upgraded tilt mechanism and adjustable seat height better respond to different body types and activities. Angled armrests tuck neatly under tabletops. And multiple base options, including a new a four-star fixed base, come in a range of finishes for total customization. Leather and textile upholstery in new colors enhance the minimalist design, which is equally at home in private spaces as in the office or a public place.

Please refer to the other Oxford™ pages for the medium back and 5 star base variants.
