Shell Lounge Chair

A Scandinavian Lounge Chair - Luxury Redefined

An architectural masterpiece; Available in 12 materials and colors


The Shell Lounge Chair was created in 1963 and was reintroduced in 1998 by Carl Hansen & Søn’s, winning broad public admiration almost immediately due to the interest of a new generation. It is considered as one of Hans J. Wegner’s most iconic and groundbreaking designs.


The design’s floating lightness is achieved through its wing-like seat and curved backrest held by a frame with three arched legs. The chair’s signature seat and backrest are created from upholstered form-pressed veneer, cradling the user in generous comfort. The chair’s laminated legs are made of several layers of veneer, and the two front legs are made from a single element, resulting in a unique and stable form.


The Shell Lounge Chair by Hans J. Wegner has an architectural beauty that makes a bold statement in any space. Pair this stunning lounge chair with our range of living room furniture.
