Product Story

The contrasts of the Hans Wegner Shell Chair make it truly special. The gentle curves of the back, doubled joint corners and steady three legs are balanced by the dramatic swoop of the seat. This comfortable, American Timber chair is available in Danish wool and cashmere, imported Italian aniline leather or pony hide. 

Detail & Specs

Specifications: 
This premium Rove Concepts reproduction features:
  • True to original, the seat and back are made of form-pressed plywood shells. The 3 legs consist of a laminated construction, the 2 front legs are made of one continuous piece, and the hind leg is a separate element.
  • Wooden Veneer is First and Seconds grade American Timber.  FAS boards are certified to be only the best cuts from the log and produce the least amount of knots.  These are sourced exclusively from USA, Canadian and Brazilian companies including Midwest Walnut Company®, Lehmonn Lumber® and Hartzell Hardwoods®.
  • Wood is finished with a final application of Italian Lacquer.  This protects the wood and gives it the most natural look possible, ensuring the color will not fade over time.  A total of 4 coats are applied.
  • To enhance the comfort, the design has added 2 upholstered cushions which are fastened to the shell with screws from the back.
  • Available in Danish Fabric, Imported Italian Leather or Pony Hide
  • Available in 3 different wood veneers: Natural Oak, Walnut and Ebony Stained (Please specify in order comments)

About the Designer

A leader in Danish Modernism and a pioneer in Organic Functionality, Hans J. Wegner (1914 – 2007) was an extremely prolific designer who created iconic works of the mid-century modern period. 

His pieces are as well-known for their craftsmanship, aesthetic appeal and functionality as much as their quantity. Placing importance on ergonomic design, he fully believed that furniture was art made to comfort the body. His most famous works are the Wing Chair, Papa Chair, Shell Chair, Wishbone Chair, Flag Halyard Chair, Plank Loveseat, Plank Chair and Plank Sofa, though over 100 out of more than 500 of his designs were produced. 

Always keeping to the idea that “a chair is to have no backside” because “it should be beautiful from all sides and angles,” Wegner’s products are truly classics.
