With its classic good looks, can you really blame the Maharam Shell Chair by Carl Hansen and Son for its perpetual smile? The curved seat reaches up to embrace the body and create a comfortable perch that is also strikingly sculptural.

Crafted from form-pressed hardwood laminates, it takes time to create the perfect form of this seat collection, a collaboration between Carl Hansen and Son design studio with the Maharam textile brand. Reinvigorating the vision set out by furniture craftsman Hans J. Wegner from 1963, this new series of 20 limited edition chairs sees the retro design outfitted with funky patterns and modern textures such as leather and homespun wool.

The Maharam Shell Chair collection is dramatically dynamic and enhances settings with its sculptural presence.
