Description

Hans J. Wegner's Ox lounge chair is one of the Danish designer's most iconic creations. Designed in 1960, the Wegner Ox lounge chair once challenged the notion of Danish design with its masculine form: the rugged shapes and exaggerated proportions of the chair differed considerably from the simple and understated lines typical of Scandinavian design at the time. The most striking feature of the design is the headrest that resembles the horns of an ox – this is where the chair's name stems from.

During his career, Hans J. Wegner designed a whopping 500 chair models, and Ox is reported to be one of his personal favorites and a design that he also included in his own home. The lounge chair's voluminous form presents a challenge for the manufacturer, as the chair needs to be upholstered by hand, with the task requiring not only precision but also physical strength. It takes a whole day to make one single chair. Previously, the Wegner Ox lounge chair has been manufactured by A.P. Stolen and Erik Jørgensen, but since 2021, it has been part of Fredericia's collection.

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner (1914–2007) is a world-famous Danish designer known especially for his numerous chair designs. Wegner had a special ability to combine functionality and esthetics; many of his designs are characterized by playful or poetic features.

Born in Tønder, southern Denmark, Wegner developed a fascination for wood as a material already as a child: he enjoyed wood carving and often spent time in museums, looking for inspiration for his sculptures, and he even took up an apprenticeship with master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg at a young age. Although Wegner began his career as a carpenter in the 1930s, in 1936 he decided to study design – a decision the modern design world is very happy for. Wood remained Wegner's favorite material throughout his prolific career, and most of his chairs are made of wood with the natural material often playing the main role in the design.

Wegner considered ergonomics to be one of the most essential aspects of designing a chair – after all, it was a piece of furniture with which the human body could be in contact for long periods of time. During his career spanning several decades, Wegner designed up to 500 different chair models, many of which have become coveted design classics not only due to their beautiful design but also their superb functionality. Perhaps the most famous of his design is the Wishbone chair, which has been in continuous production since 1950.

Wegner is known as one of the pioneers of Danish modernism and one of the key figures of the Golden Age of Nordic design. During his career, he received a multitude of design awards, including the Lunning Prize as well as the Grand Prix in the Milan Triennale in 1951, the Prince Eugen Medal in 1961 and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1980.
