CH07 Shell Chair
When Hans J. Wegner unveiled his Shell chair in 1963, some critics loved the avant-garde design, but the general public was reluctant to accept the chair’s bold and different look.
A few decades later the Shell chair was reintroduced and it immediately won several design awards and broad public admiration. The design’s floating lightness is achieved through its wing-like lines and the arches of its tapered, laminated legs. The curved shells of the chair’s signature seat and back are crafted from compression molded veneer and upholstered. A three-legged construction with the front legs formed out of one piece of veneer and the back leg from another – providing great stability.
