CH07 Shell Chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn
Hans Wegner designed the Shell Chair in 1963 with the intent of creating an innovative, comfortable, and unique chair that looked beautiful from all angles. At the time of design, production of formed laminated veneer was still extremely rare.
Like many things that are ahead of their times, the Shell Chair was not fully appreciated or popular until over 30 years after its original design when it became a highly sought after item at Sotheby's auction house.
Designers now fondly call the Shell chair "the chair that smiles."
