Carsten Thau, Kjeld Vindum, "Arne Jacobsen" Arkitektens Forlag, 1998, p 525. The Ox-Chair is a very comfortable and quite voluminous chair. It took Jacobsen five years to develop this model before it was put into production in 1966.
It is a rare item amongst Jacobsen's designed chairs since it was not designed for one of Jacobsen's specific architectural projects, as most of his other pieces of furniture.
The Ox-Chair was at the time a bit too large for most people's homes and was after a short period of time taken out of production. Thus only a few Ox-Chairs have survived from the 1960's.
