Created by the famed “master of chairs” Hans J. Wegner back in 1963, the Shell Chair created a stir due to its avant-garde look. Carried on since 1998 by Carl Hansen, this design has since warmed the publics opinion of it and has quickly become one of the most popular and in demand designs from Carl Hansen. It’s lightness is achieved through the seemingly thin wooden shell that gives the piece its iconic design and name. The signature curve of the seat is supported by a solid foundation of three wooden legs, which help to lock it in place as well as give it more stability for any user. The pressed veneer makes up the curved section, giving generous comfort and of course a beautiful and well-loved aesthetic.
The Shell Chair was created with the belief that furniture should always be comfortable and this is clear with the design of this chair. Wegner gave it it’s soft and slim upholstery to provide pure comfort but also a beautiful silhouette when situating this piece in the corner of your living space.
