Wegner CH468 Oculus Chair - Kvadrat Special Edition
CH468 Oculus Chair - Kvadrat Special Edition
Designer: Hans J. Wegner (1960).
Manufactured under license in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son.
Oculus means ‘eye’ in Latin - a reference to the defining eye-shaped seams at the center of the upholstered backrest. The Oculus Chair was designed in 1960 as a prototype, but was never manufactured. It only went into production a few years ago after Carl Hansen & Son discovered one of the prototypes in the Wegner family home. Like the Wing Chair, Oculus has a solid beech frame made up of 26 components and thin stainless steel legs - a contrast that accentuates its strong character. The chair is spacious, with a broad rounded backrest and pronounced armrests. Wegner drew inspiration for the design from nature, combining organic shapes with simple, soft lines and a strong eye-catching presence.
