One of several world-renowned Danish furniture designers, Hans Jørgensen Wegner, designed some of the most recognizable design icons including the stunning CH07 Shell Chair. Designed in 1963, the public did not initially greet its bold, avant-garde design warmly. However, design critics immediately admired it. It wasn’t until the 1990’s that the public started to appreciate the minimal mid-century ergonomic design.
Hans J. Wegner is arguably one of the most important representatives of Danish modernism and was inspired by the universal understanding of the day that “form follows function”. His objective of creating functional design solutions based on new production methods, yet without ever losing sight of the central role of traditional craft techniques, is one we at ScanWest hold dearly.
The Shell Chair was my first furniture purchase whilst living in Copenhagen, and I still cherish it today. Our WEGNER model is deeply textured with a multi-layered graphic, evoking the fluid wing-like lines and arching curves of the Shell Chair’s seat and back. It is truly a designer door made in humble admiration of a great inspirational designer.
