Danish designer Hans J. Wegner preferred to work in solid wood, but occasionally he explored the use of bent plywood, and for that we are very thankful. Sometimes called the smiling chair, his Shell Chair (1963) achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs. And while it stands on only three legs, this chair has an absolute stability that could only be achieved by someone with Wegners expertise in cabinetmaking and architecture. Wegners belief that a chair should be beautiful from all sides and angles is especially evident with his Shell Chair. This comfortable masterpiece is a marvel of grace and beauty. This is the authentic Shell Chair produced by Carl Hansen & Sn. Made in Denmark.
