Hans Wegner’s Ox chair – An artistic take on a lounge chair
Best-known for his world-famous collection of wooden dining chairs in characteristic Wegner style influenced by Scandinavian mid century design and Danish modern, Hans J. Wegner designed a number of lounge chairs which all achieved a formidable success, especially when you keep in mind that Wegner’s expertise was first and foremost in dining chairs without upholstery. Sculptural and elegant designs such as the iconic Ox chair are a lasting legacy of the Danish designer and a testament to his creative genius.
Ox chair has been defined by many critics as Hans Wegner’s boldest and most sculptural design, especially when it comes to his lounge chairs. The higher front legs and shorter back legs of Wegner Ox chair are a kind of a trademark of this designer, as the same relation was featured in his other lounge chairs. This feature allows the Ox chair to be tilted at just the right angle to allow an individual to sit back, relax and enjoy the cozy and inviting feel of this outstanding design. The Danish designer created this one of a kind model for Erik Jørgensen furniture manufacturer – hence its official designation EJ100.
Ox chair – a timeless elegance
Finding inspiration in nature has been a core feature of Scandinavian mid century design since its earliest days. And this is something that has truly come to prominence over the course of Wegner’s long and fruitful career. And just a brief glimpse at his Ox lounge chair easily reveals the elegance surrounding the designer’s artistic interpretation of an Ox. The headrest of the chair is a clear hint at the horns of the majestic animal, while the imposing shape and form of the chair with massive armrests equally well portrays the massive body of an ox.
The way that these features are perfectly brought together in this outstanding Scandinavian mid century modern design (which was Hans Wegner’s favorite) is at the core of Ox chair’s timeless appeal and elegance which are retained to this day, even though the chair was designed back in 1960. Upholstered in luxurious leather and constructed using a combination of stainless steel and molded polyurethane foam, Ox lounge chair was an icon of elegance when it was first created by the Danish furniture designer, quickly becoming recognised as one of the most iconic Scandinavian midcentury armchairs. Today, it can also be purchased in fabric, wool, faux leather and a number of other materials, as well as in a variety of different colors.
Ox chair for sale
If you are looking to get your Ox chair and ottoman, it is important to know that there are several ways you can do so. Of course, the most straightforward, but also most expensive route is to get an Ox chair original. However, this includes paying for the name and the logo of the original manufacturer and the shipping costs can also be quite high. So, you might instead decide to look for Ox chairs for sale at your local retailers. However, the issue here is that most of those will be Ox chair replicas of questionable quality and durability, not to mention the danger of getting a disproportionate design that will lack the timeless elegance of this Wegner’s design.
