Hans Wegner, a Danish furniture designer and cabinetmaker, designed the Oculus Chair in 1960. The oculus chair gets its name from the eye-shaped stitching on the front of the chair. It contains a solid wooden frame underneath its cushioned upholstery. Its sloping armrests and large headrest and base are comfortable for sitting in many different positions. Underneath the chair is thin meal legs, giving the robust chair lightness.
