Ch07 Lounge Chair Quick Ship

Design Hans Wegner, 1963
Form-pressed plywood, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The Shell Chair CH07 has such a powerful presence that it wasn't an instant success when Hans J. Wegner designed it in 1963. While some critics loved the avantgarde design of Wegner's lounge chair, the general public was reluctant to accept the chair's bold and different design. But when the Shell Chair was reintroduced in 1998 it immediately won broad public appeal as well as several design awards.

The floating lightness is achieved through the winglike lines and the arching curves of the tapered, laminated legs. The three-legged construction provides great stability and the upholstered, slightly bent shells offer generous comfort.

The seat and back are made from the highest quality form-pressed hardwood laminates. The front legs are made of one piece of continuous laminated wood, the back leg from another. The seat and back are available upholstered in fabric or leather.

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
