Details

The Hans Wegner three-legged shell chair was originally introduced in 1963. A few limited series were produced, but the project soon came to a stand still. The chair was relaunched in 1997 and after 34 years of oblivion the chair finally got its breakthrough. As a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that one of the original shell chairs from the 60s sold for $20,000 at Christies in London in 1999.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Width: 92 cm / 36 inch
  • Depth: 63 cm / 24.8 inch
  • Height: 74 cm / 29.1 inch
  • Seat Height: 35 cm / 13.8 inch

HELPFUL NOTES:

  • In spite of its three-legged base it stands well on the floor and does not easily topple over.
  • Although it is low and does not feature armrests it is easy to get up from by seizing the front edge and pulling oneself up.
  • Please note that all wood finishes will likely experience some colour shifting as a result of exposure to sunlight.

Carl Hansen & Son

Passionate craftsmanship means many things to different people. To Carl Hansen it means everything. It has been so ever since 1908 when Carl Hansen founded his company on a strong belief: outstanding craftsmanship and rational serial production could go hand-in-hand to provide customers with high-quality furniture at a reasonable price. Today they continue to build on this simple but strong idea, combining traditional woodworking techniques with the latest technology to produce furniture of lasting value.

Hans J. Wegner

Denmark, 1914 - 2007

"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles." – Hans J. Wegner

With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller’s architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.

Over the years, he designed over 500 chairs with many different wood types and styles. He became the undisputed master of Danish chair design. His style is based on clean, simple lines and to Wegner a chair was an artwork as much as a functional object. One of his well-known philosophies was that a chair should be beautiful from every angle and that it should not have a backside. Though Wegner designed for series production, all of his work bears the stamp of the traditionally trained craftsman. Wegner’s most famous chairs are the Wishbone, the Wing, the Elbow and the Shell. Most of his designs are produced by Carl Hansen and are still in production today.
