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.
Arne Jacobsen is one of Denmark's most famous and prominent furniture designers and architects. Between 1924 and 1927, he studied at the "Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole" in Copenhagen and was later employed at Paul Holsoe's architectural office.
Jacobsen is considered one of the leading representatives of functionalism; he believed that architecture and interior design should work together and complement each other. Several famous Danish architects and designers began their careers at Jacobsen, including Hans Wegner. Jacobsen also collaborated with Fritz Hansen and created the iconic design classics "The Ant", "The Egg", "The Seven", "The Swan", the 3300 series, and the AJ lamps. He has also designed cutlery for Georg Jensen.
