Hans J. Wegner´s “Smiling Chair” (1963) by Carl Hansen & Son
Published on June 21, 2013
Hans J. Wegner designed in 1963 the Shell Chair, is one perfect thing: a low elegant lounge chair with a generous smile and an inviting seat for life.
The Wegner Shell Chair is one of Hans Wegner’s most iconic chairs. Wegner Shell Chairsachieve their floating lightness thanks to wing-like lines and arching curves of a three-legged design. Hans Wegner first drew up the CH07 Shell Chair in 1963, and after a 30-year hiatus, Carl Hansen & Son re-released the Wegner Shell Chair in showrooms again in the ’90s.
Hans Wegner’s CH07 Shell Chair, also known as the Smiling Chair, is renowned for its timeless style and its generous comfort. Danish Design Store offers an unrivaled selection of colors and finishes, including the Limited Edition Wegner CH07 Shell Chair, of which only 250 were ever made.
