When Hans Wegner debuted his Surrealism-inspired Ox Chair, I wonder if he meant for it to be the furniture equivalent of an ink blot test. Though named after the Ox in Picasso’s revolutionary mural, Guernica, there are countless other animals and objects it resembles to each person glancing at it for their first time. One person might see a reindeer while another sees a hammerhead shark and still another sees an ant.
What does this all mean from a psychology standpoint? I have no idea and I’m not even going to try to guess. I imagine a designer as brilliant as Wegner intentionally designed this piece to be interpreted differently by the individual, thus making it personalized before even sitting in it.
Our Ox Chair Reproduction honors the same dimensions as the original with a variety of colors choices of our top-grain and 100% aniline-dyed Italian leather. We use a high-density foam cushion over a molded fiber-reinforced polymer internal shell and stainless steel legs to ensure ultimate comfort matched by its durability.
You can check it out along with everything else we offer by visiting any of our three showroom locations in Bellingham, Chicago or Dallas!
