Hans J. Wegner Shell Chair CH07

The sculptural and artistic Shell Chair CH07 is one of most popular designs by the acclaimed Hans J. Wegner. Also known as the “Smiling Chair,” the unique form and floating lines of the stable structure are the result of the designer’s extensive understanding of the qualities of wood and its performance in the production process. The curved form of the seating shell and the padded cushion ensure comfort, while the arched legs provide stable support. The unique, three-legged piece is one of the iconic furniture designs that established the popularity of mid-century Danish design on an international level. Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most prolific Scandinavian designers, whose creations feature in museums worldwide.

About the Designer

Hans J. Wegner

Hans J. Wegner

Essential to assisting the international popularity of mid-century Danish design, Hans Jørgensen Wegner was born in southern Denmark in 1914. Skilled as an apprentice cabinet maker, Wegner attended the modernist-influenced Danish School of Arts and Crafts and Architectural Academy in Copenhagen.

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s style and vision is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist approach with emphasis on functionality. The Dane’s legacy is celebrated for his landmark approach to designing chairs, experimenting with minimalist shapes and overlapping frames. In his own words, Wegner enjoyed ‘stripping the old chairs of their outer style and letting them appear in their pure construction.’

Wegner received several major design prizes for his work, from the Lunning Prize in 1951 and the coveted Grand Prix of the Milan Triennale in the same year, to the Prince Eugen Medal in Sweden and the Danish Eckersberg medal. In 1959, he was impressively made honorary Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts in London, whilst his work exhibits within MoMA in New York and the Die Neue Sammlung in Munich.
