Details

The famous Shell Chair CH07.A Danish design icon for the living room or lounge area. The Shell Chair CH07 has such a powerful presence that it wasn't an instant success when Hans J. Wegner designed it in 1963.

While some critics loved the avantgarde design of Wegner's lounge chair, the general public was reluctant to accept the chair's bold and different design. But when the Shell Chair was reintroduced in 1998 it immediately won broad public appeal as well as several design awards.

The floating lightness is achieved through the winglike lines and the arching curves of the tapered, laminated legs. The three-legged construction provides great stability and the upholstered, slightly bent shells offer generous comfort.

The seat and back are made from the highest quality form-pressed hardwood laminates. The front legs are made of one piece of continuous laminated wood, the back leg from another. The seat and back are available upholstered in fabric or leather.

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner
As a driving force behind 'Danish Modern', Hans J. Wegner helped change the general public's view of furniture in the 1950s and 1960s. His passion for designing chairs, more than 500 of them, is recognized worldwide and reflected in his title 'the Master of the Chair'. He is famous for integrating perfectly executed joints with exquisite shapes and combining them with a constant curiosity for materials and deep respect for wood and its natural characteristics. His designs furnish minimalism with organic and natural softness. Hans J. Wegner was born in 1914 in Tønder in Southern Denmark, the son of a shoemaker. At the age of 17, he completed his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in the workshop of H. F. Stahlberg where his first designs saw the light of day. At the age of twenty he moved to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the School of Arts and Crafts, where he studied from 1936-1938 before embarking on a career as an architect.
