CH07 Shell Chair
Designed by Hans J Wegner.
The CH07 Shell Chair was created in 1963, but the design was ahead of its time and therefore has patiently waited for the spotlight for a number of decades. Today, it is considered one of Hans J. Wegner’s most iconic and groundbreaking designs.
The design’s floating lightness is achieved through its wing-like seat and curved backrest held by a frame with three arched legs. The chair’s signature seat and backrest are created from upholstered form-pressed veneer, cradling the user in generous comfort.
Frame available in Beech, Oak or Walnut in a variety of finishes.
**Oak has a clearly visible wood structure when painted and is available only in Black. Beech has minimal structure when painted and is available in all CHS colours - see options here.
Upholstery made to order in a wide choice of fabric types and colours (see a list under ‘Details’). Fabrics are priced in ‘Groups’. Simply select the appropriate price Group and then add a note of your fabric choice at checkout or email us.

Wood is a natural material and may vary depending on the environment - walnut and teak can vary considerably in tone and pattern even within the same log.
