Carl Hansen & Søn Shell Chair
Sometimes called the "smiling chair," Hans Wegner’s Shell Chair (1963) achieves a floating lightness with its wing-like seat and arching curved legs. It stands on only three legs, but Shell has absolute stability, owing to Wegner’s expertise in cabinetmaking and architecture. His belief that a chair "should be beautiful from all sides and angles" is especially evident here, a marvel of grace and beauty. This is the authentic Shell Chair produced by Carl Hansen & Søn. Made in Denmark.
