I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

Arne Jacobsen's Oxford chair

The Oxford Chair

What was the greatest challenge to realizing the design?
Over the years, the chair had become thicker with padding, so we took it back to the original design. We’ve made the base feel much more stable to sit on, but also slimmer. You see the curve of the long shell much better now because we’ve used a higher-quality, slimmer upholstery. With the technologies we had in 1965 it was not possible to make a chair that lived up to the wood model. Today we can come closer.

I love this chair, it's the most amazing thing to sit in, and the new fabric looks fantastic on it. I love Jacobsen's stuff, and this just works... yet again!
