CH07 Shell lounge chair by Hans Wegner for Carl Hansen & Son.

Sometimes called "The Smiling Chair", the three-legged construction provides absolute stability; the chair achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like seat and the arching curves of its tapered legs.

Made from form-pressed wood laminate in either beech (painted in CHS colour), oak (clear lacquer, oil,  white oil or black lacquer finish), smoked oak (oil finish) or walnut (clear lacquer or oil finish). PDF available to download to illustrate the different wood finishes.

This range can be upholstered in a variety of Carl Hansen fabrics or leathers. See downloadable specification sheet for details of the relevant fabric collections.

Samples of the rull range of Carl Hansen & Son upholstery fabrics are available to view at our shop and showroom.

Please also download Maintenance Advice for more information regarding the different wood finishes and how to care for them.
