High-quality reproduction of Hans J. Wegner’s design.
The Shell Chair, also known as the "CH07," was designed in 1963 by Danish designer Hans J. Wegner. This chair is sometimes also called the "Smiling Chair," for the gracefully curved seat which invites you to take a seat in total comfort. Designed with simple, clean lines so characteristic of modern design and handcrafted with care, this beautifully balanced chair is an icon of Danish design even today.
As a natural material, wood is subject to effects of the environmentincluding temperature and humidity levels. Chairs are not made from a singlesolid block of wood and are assembledusing dowels and glue. Unlike a metal chair that is welded or a plastic chairthat is made in a single mold, based on use and conditions these dowels andglue can loosen over time and may require regular maintenance to keep themperforming. Due to the common nature of this upkeep, regardless ofmanufacturer, resources are readily available online or through your localupholstery or millwork supplier. This is not considered a defect or a warrantyissue.
