From a humble cabinet maker, to architect and renowned furniture designer, Hans J Wegner was a driving force in Danish furniture design in the 1950s and 1960s. Over his lifetime he designed over 500 chairs, many of which went on to become 20th century icons and are displayed in museums and galleries across the world today.
This replica Wegner CH07 Shell Chair is a tribute to Hans J Wegner's original design, a universally recognised piece that harmonises form and function. Sometimes referred to as the Smiling Chair, it features a wide, sweeping curved seat, inclined back and graceful arching legs, all made from moulded plywood. The organic sculptural grace and wing-shaped seat give this distinctive 3-legged chair a visual lightness and floating form. Our replica is made from moulded birch plywood, finished with American Ash wood veneer and the back and seat cushions are made from high density foam, upholstered in soft cashmere. A marvel of innovation and beauty, this unique and striking chair will make a stunning statement piece for any space.
Please note that colours may vary slightly to what is pictured here. Variations in colour and grain are due to the different batches of cashmere used and the natural characteristics of wood, and contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.
