The Shell Chair was first presented on 20 September 1963 at the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition in Copenhagen. However, it took another 35 years for the chair to achieve its current level of popularity and recognition. This only serves to underline the visionary quality of Wegner as a designer. In 2023, Carl Hansen & Søn celebrates the Shell Chair’s 60th anniversary with an exclusive edition made of rosewood and oak, available with or without a seat upholstered in black, matt aniline leather.
A small brass plate engraved with Hans J. Wegner’s signature and design year is mounted to the back of the chair. This special edition will only be available from October 2nd to December 31, 2023.
