Designed in 1960, Hans J. Wegner’s stunning CH468 Oculus Chair went into production half a century later, when Wegner’s original drawings were rediscovered.
An inviting design icon made for relaxation.
The story of Hans J. Wegner’s CH468 Oculus Chair is unique. In examining the vast archives of the Hans J. Wegner Design Studio, Carl Hansen & Søn came across a clay model of a previously unknown lounge chair, along with photos of an early prototype. A later discovery of Wegner’s drawings of the chair enabled production to begin in 2010 in accordance with the designer’s original vision.
“Oculus”, Latin for eye, refers to the eye-like shape in the upholstery of the chair’s back. The combination of an unusual design with a supremely comfortable, supportive structure made the Oculus Chair an instant favorite.
The chair’s curved, oversized backrest and large, sloping armrests create an inviting nook for relaxation and provide a dramatic contrast to the lightweight stainless steel legs. The bold silhouette can serve as the centerpiece of any room on its own, and functions well in groups.
The CH468 Oculus Chair is available with the matching CH446 footstool for added comfort.
