Oksen lounge chair, 1966

Oksen chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen.

Oksen, which means 'Bull' in Danish, is a bold and powerful lounge chair originally designed in 1966 and re-launched by Fritz Hansen 2017.

It took Jacobsen five years to develop and perfect the Oksen lounge chair. Many of Jacobsen's earlier designs such as the Egg and Swan chairs have rounded wholly organic shapes. Oksen, on the other hand, has a much sharper outline and angular form. It is described as the largest and most distinctive chair that Jacobsen ever designed.

The history of Fritz Hansen begins in 1872, where Danish cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtains a trade license in Copenhagen.

The history of Fritz Hansen begins in 1872, where Danish cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtains a trade license in Copenhagen.

In 1885 he starts a furniture production company of his own and within two years manages to establish a flourishing workshop - in central Copenhagen – where quality is already a priority.. Early on in the century, the forward-looking Christian E. Hansen, son of Fritz Hansen, starts to experiment with steam bending beech. In the Thirties, the technique is so refined that Fritz Hansen is among the world leaders in the field, which later evolves into the firm’s specialty: Furniture created in laminate wood.
