The Maharam Shell Chair Project was created to celebrate the iconic furniture piece as it reaches its 50th anniversary. A staple in many homes and offices, the chair was originally designed by the Danish furniture company Carl Hansen & Son. Yet with the help of some modern designer heavyweights, the Shell Chair is enjoying a few new looks that will fit into contemporary homes with even more ease.
Using a diverse range of textiles from the Maharam coffers including homespun wool textures, the Maharam Shell Chair Project enlisted such renowned names as Paul Smith, Josef Hoffman and Hella Jongerius to create stunning upholstery with them. Whether bright and bold or minimalist and subdued, the Shell Chairs all maintain the sloping lines the seat has become known for.
