Arne Jacobsen Oxford Chair

The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors of St. Catherine's College in Oxford. 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 in the the Oxford series. In spite of initial protests and uproar over the commission of a foreign modernist, Arne Jacobsen received a honorary doctorate from Oxford upon completion of the project. Today, this ground breaking example of total design is considered some of Arne Jacobsen's most outstanding work.
