Hans Wegner’s instantly recognizable Shell chair, designed in 1963, turns 50 this year, and Carl Hansen & Son, the Danish manufacturer with exclusive rights to produce the chair, has found a way to celebrate the chair’s lasting influence in extravagant style. They’ve teamed up with textile maker Maharam to introduce a new line of 20 Shells, all covered in Maharam upholstery with matching wood finishes. Among the designs featured from Maharam’s collection are ones by Alexander Girard, Hella Jongerius, Josef Hoffmann and Paul Smith.
