Hans Wegner 1960s Shell Chair

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.

We have featured Hans Wegner previously – with his bizarre Ox chair. This Shell Chair isn’t quite so odd, but it’s certainly quirky.

Designed three years after the Ox Chair in 1963, the Shell Chair is a three-legged affair with sloped back and ‘wing’ base that never quite took off originally, needing a relaunch in the 90s to be fully appreciated. I think that’s what you refer to as ‘ahead if its time’.

Available in ash, oak or walnut veneer, each with halingdal fabric (in your choice of colour), it will set you back £1,150.
