The original version of the Oxford chair was designed for the professors at St. Catherine's College in Oxford. The "professor's chair" later evolved into the Oxford series. This chair has a low back and castors. In spite of initial protests and uproar over the commission of a foreign modernist, Arne Jacobsen received an honorary doctorate from Oxford, upon completion of the project. This groundbreaking example of total design is, today, considered Arne Jacobsen's most outstanding work.
