CH468 Oculus Chair

Hans J. Wegner, 1960


A sought-after and sculptural armchair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1960, the CH468 was not actually put into production until 2010. The chair is also known as "The Oculus." "Oculus" is the Latin word for "eye" and refers to the chair's curved back which forms an "eye" in the upholstery. The chair's round, roomy upholstered back and large armrests provide a comfy contrast to the lightweight stainless steel legs. In and of itself, the chair can command the attention in any living room, but it also functions well in groups. The chair is available upholstered in leather or fabric and features stainless steel legs.
