Can’t help it, but I am a sucker for the sleek 60s… Especially iconic pieces of furniture updated with contemporary comfort and colour. When Arne Jacobsen designed the Oxford Chair in 1965 he was looking for a seating solution for the professors at St Catherine’s College at Oxford University. Oxford became synonymous with status and prestige. The new edition dispenses with hierarchy, and the original high back, to echo a more modern approach to work.
