An iconic piece and a tribute to mid-century design, Hans Wegner SHELL Chair (1963) is a quirky addition to any space. Sometimes also called the "smiling chair".
This Shell Chair (1963) achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs. The unique design features strong, exaggerated curves that contour the human body with stunning ease and three legs.
And while it stands on only three legs, this chair has an absolute stability that could only be achieved by someone with Wegner's expertise in cabinetmaking and architecture. Wegner's 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.
