    Information

    The CH07 Shell Chair from Carl Hansen & Son was designed by Hans J.Wegnerin 1963. With its three legs this is a sculptural chair best placed where it can be viewed from all sides, on its own or in groups.

    Made in Denmark from form-pressed wood veneer it's finished in either beech, oiled, lacquered or white oiled oak, smoked oak and walnut. This is complemented with a seat and back upholstery in a range of Kvadrat fabrics or leathers. Sometimes called "The Smiling Chair", the three-legged construction provides absolute stability; the chair achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs.

    Finishes
    Soap - The closest to raw wood; grain and structure are visible; light in colour
    Oil - Grain and structure are visible; lighter than soap; creates lustre and brings out contrast in grain and structure. Darkens over time to a rich patina
    Clear Lacquer- Grain & structure visible, darker than soap, glossy smooth finish which yellows over time.
    White Oil - Same as oil with grain and structure visible with a light tinge.
