The Maharam Shell Chair Project by Carl Hansen

The Maharam Shell Chair Project by Carl Hansen

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary and ICFF, the perpetually innovative Hans Wegner Shell Chair serves as a foil for Maharam’s diverse range of textiles, including homespun wool textures, re-editioned designs of the Wiener Werkstätte and Alexander Girard, and collaborations with Hella Jongerius and Paul Smith.Twenty special Shell Chairs, each with a different Maharam textile and coordinating wood frame, have been editioned as part of Carl Hansen’s celebration of the chair and the creative genius of both Hans Wegner and the designers of these incredible fabrics. Smart Furniture is the only place you’ll find the full range of colors in which Maharam offers these fabrics. You can shop them all, here.
