Carl Hansen CH468 Oculus Chair
Manufacturer: Carl Hansen
Designer: Hans j Wegner 1960
CH468 is a sculptural armchair that only Hans J. Wegner could have conceived. Its construction and upholstery provide a variety of comfortable sitting positions and excellent support for the lower and upper back neck and shoulders. Wegner designed some of his easy chairs with large curved backs that invite users into a protective shield. CH468 is a clear example of this with a rounded silhouette that blends beautifully with distinctive generous armrests.
The chair's legs in brushed stainless steel create a characteristic counterbalance to the chair's roomy upholstered body.
The seat cushion contains a mixture of down and foam giving excellent comfort while at the same time maintaining its shape.
The interior frame is handmade entirely in wood by Carl Hansen & Son's experienced craftsmen.
The rounded back in form-pressed wood veneer is one of the largest form-pressed wood veneer pieces in modern furniture and makes the chair's construction especially stable.
CH468 is available in the customer's choice of fabric or leather.
It should be noted that due to the chair back's width CH468 is upholstered only in fabrics without patterns or visible horizontal/vertical weaves.
Materials: Frame: stainless steel.
Seat/back: Solid beech, flame retardant cold foam CMHR
