The CH468 Oculus Chair by Hans J. Wegner is unique in its inception. Upon the examination of the archives of Wegner’s studio, Carl Hansen found a modelling of an unknown chair and turned it into the CH468. It began production in 2010 in accordance with his original vision and has been in production for the brand ever since. The name is derived from the Latin for eye, ‘Oculus’ which is the expression that is given off from the upholstery on the chairs back. The combination of the design plus the extremely comfortable and supportive structure made this chair and instant favourite that took over from Carl Hansen.
It’s flaired and dramatic backrest is mixed in with the large and sloping armrests that create an area of serenity and relaxation. It also further provides contrast to the lightweight and stainless steel legs that hold up the structure with powerful structural integrity. The silhouette functions well on its own as a centrepiece to the room, allowing you to be drawn into its eye like shape.
