Hans Wagner Chairs Nov 3, 2008


House of Copenhagen has re-issued one of my favorite chairs in Architectural / Furniture Design history, “the Shell Chair”. Unfortunately, It’s way out of my price range. Read up below.

Carl Hansen & Son, the world’s leading maker of furniture designed by Hans J. Wegner, celebrated its 100th anniversary on October 28th, 2008

Hans J. Wegner CH07 Limited Edition

Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1964, “The Shell Chair” is one of Wegner’s most iconic pieces. Sometimes referred to as “The Smiling Chair”, CH07 is renowned for both its lasting good looks and its generous comfort. This limited anniversary edition is crafted from exclusive xebrano veneer (a first for the CH07) and upholstered in Elegance Special Brown leather, a supple aniline specially chosen for its rich color and soft texture.
