An architectural masterpiece

The unveiling of the CH07 Shell Chair in 1963 divided hearts. On the one hand, the avant-garde look was loved, but the general public also found it difficult to accept the chair.

Production ended early. When Carl Hansen & Søn reintroduced the Shell Chair in 1998, it attracted widespread public admiration almost immediately due to the interest of a new generation.

The floating lightness of the design is achieved by the wing-like seat and the curved backrest, which are held by a frame with three arched legs. The characteristic seat and backrest of the chair are made of padded, compression molded veneer and offer the user a generous amount of comfort. The chair's laminated legs are made of multiple layers of veneer, and the two front legs are made from a single element, resulting in a unique and stable shape.
