The CH07 Shell Chair by Hans J. Wegner was originally designed in the early 1960s, but only with a very limited amount of chairs produced. The chair was relaunched in 1997 by Carl Hansen & Son, Denmark, after growing interest in Danish mid-century modern furniture:
The CH07 chair’s distinctive and organic form draws inspiration from the shape of a seashell, reflecting Wegner’s penchant for integrating nature’s elements into his designs. The chair’s graceful curves and sweeping lines create an eye-catching and sculptural appearance, making it an playful addition to any space.
