Model 1000 - By Hans J. Wegner
Wegner Ox Chair
Designed by Hans J. Wegner, the Ox Chair is an iconic statement piece with an indisputable presence. A bold, sculptural chair that challenged the understated aesthetics of Danish design at the time, with its distinctive headrest referencing ox horns and its voluminous body. It demonstrates Wegner’s organic, artistic approach to furniture and desire to redefine traditional seating.

Wegner chose to furnish his home with the Ox Chair, as it was one of his favourites. Learn more about the Ox Chair here.
