Chair #160

—Designed by Hans J. Wegner

Hans Wegner’s fascination with Picasso inspired him to do this sculptural chair. The production of the chair stopped in 1962 on the grounds that it was too advanced for that period. Can you believe? Thankfully production recommenced in 1985, applying new technologies but keeping the original integrity and elegance. The Ox chair has won many prestigious awards and is exhibited worldwide.
