Producer: Carl Hansen & Søn
Denmark - 1963
Mid-Century modern scandinavian easychair model CH 07 or Shell Chair by Hans Wegner. New edition.
When Hans J. Wegner unveiled the design of the CH07 Shell Chair in 1963, some critics loved the avant-garde look, but the general public did not want to accept its bold expression. The mixed reviews of the 1960s resulted in very limited production. When Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the Shell Chair in 1998, however, it immediately won broad public admiration.
The design’s floating lightness is achieved through its wing-like lines and the arches of its tapered legs. The curved shells of the chair’s signature seat and back are crafted from compression-molded veneer and upholstered, cradling the user in generous comfort. The front legs are crafted from one piece of veneer and the back leg from another, resulting in a uniquely stable and beautiful form.
In short, the Shell Chair is clear symbol of Wegner’s belief that a chair should have no back side, but rather be beautiful from all angles.
