An architectural masterpiece

CH07 Shell Chair is a clear manifestation of Hans J. Wegner’s belief.
A chair should always be comfortable, have no back side and should be beautiful from all sides and angles.


CH07 Shell Chair designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1963, the undisputed master of Danish chair design. When the CH07 Shell Chair is first launched, the public was difficult to accept its distinctive form and expression but the design world loved it’s avant-garde look. Only a limited production on Shell Chair was produced due to the less-developed production techniques of the time in 1963. Only when Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the chair in 1998 to gain broad public admiration.


CH07 Shell Chair has a floating lightness achieved through its wing-like seat and curved backrest held by a frame with three arched legs. The chair has a signature architectural feature that the seat and backrest are created from an upholstered form-pressed veneer, cradling the user in generous comfort. The chair’s laminated legs are made of several layers of veneer, and the two front legs are made from a single element, resulting in a unique and stable form.


In 2014 Milan Design Week, Carl Hansen & Søn launched a limited edition that was in collaboration with Paul Smith and Maharam in which the Big Stripe and Stripes fabrics were used to upholster a selection of furniture by Hans J. Wegner to commemorate the legendary 100th anniversary of Wegner's birth. Including the Shell Chair, Wing Chair, and Wishbone Chair, which were created between the late 1940s and the 1960s.
