Dezeen Showroom: Fritz Hansen has released an updated version of the midcentury Oxford office chair by Arne Jacobsen, which combines a timeless aesthetic with modern sensibilities.

The Oxford chair, which was originally designed for professors at St Catherine’s College in Oxford, is shaped to support a person’s body as they sit within it.

The reworking of Arne Jacobsen’s office chair has been upgraded for use within offices, the home, and a “new generation of workspaces”.

Its simplistic yet contemporary form aims to bring a modern look to workspaces. The chair can be also be customised with armrests, bases, upholstery and is available as a low- or mid-back model for optimal comfort.

An extended seat provides users with natural posture that works with the chair’s upgraded tilt mechanism and adjustable seat to better suit all body types and uses.

Armrests were designed and angled to fit tidily below tabletops for a clean look and finish.  Multiple bases including a four-point fixed base and a five-point wheeled base can be similarly customised in different finishes.
