Meet the designer

One of the most prolific Danish talents of his time, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) designed roughly 500 chairs, many of which have become classics that are still in production today. Wegner is part of the “Golden Age’ of modern Danish design, known for his fascination with wood and for infusing functional designs with a poetic, playful edge. For Wegner, a chair isn’t just a piece of furniture, but a work of art made to support the human form.

The Ox Chair is arguably Wegner's most striking design, purportedly inspired by his fascination with Picasso's abstract paintings, claiming that design doesn't always have to be so "dreadfully serious". Wegner chose to furnish his home with the Ox Chair, as it was one of his favourites. Learn more about the Ox Chair here.
