CH468 | Oculus Chair 休闲椅(Black steel, Leather Thor 301)
CH468 | OCULUS CHAIR
Designed by Hans J. Wegner
Hans J. Wegner’s impressive CH468, called the Oculus Chair, was designed in 1960, but first put into production a half a century later.
Hans J. Wegner’s remarkable CH468 is an invitation to luxurious relaxation.
The production history of Hans J. Wegner’s CH468 Oculus Chair is a little out of the ordinary. While visiting Wegner’s design studio, Carl Hansen & Søn became very interested in some photos and a small clay model of a 1960’s easy chair. When Wegner’s technical drawings of the chair were retrieved, and Carl Hansen & Søn was given the opportunity to study a full-size prototype of the chair manufactured in 1960, it became possible to start production of the Oculus chair in 2010.
Oculus is the Latin word for eye and refers to the eye shaped stitching in the chair’s back upholstery. The design works to ensure that the shoulder blades can fall back comfortably into the chair creating rest for both the neck and back. The distinctive design with the spacious back, the sloping armrests and the soft seat cushion have made the Oculus Chair popular.
The impressive upholstered upper chair shape is emphasized by the sleek looking stainless steel frame with slopping legs. With its sculptured silhouette and fine seating characteristics, the Oculus Chair will be the natural focal point in any room, both standing individually or in a group.
The CH468 Oculus Chair is available with the matching CH446 foot stool, for added comfort.

Hans J. Wegner
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner created almost 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950.
The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
