Designed in 1963 by Hans J. Wegner and produced by master craftspeople at Carl Hansen & Søn, the dynamic, sculptural presence of the CH07 Shell Chair is accented with lacquered beech wood and premium Loke leather.
A controversial design at the time of its release in 1963, the CH07 Shell Chair features a striking avant-garde silhouette which initially divided the public’s opinion, however its elegant clean-lined aesthetic won it a selection of design awards upon its re-release in 1998.
This CH07 Shell Chair is handmade with a solid beech frame finished with lacquer to enhance its natural grain, while its seat is accented with premium Loke leather. Loke is an embossed hide with a supple surface, coated with a protective layer to help it resist stains and fading.
The CH07 Shell Chair is an excellent example of iconic Danish designer Hans J. Wegner’s constant striving towards organic simplicity in his work, and his desire to create sculptural beauty, comfort and outstanding stability.
