Hans J Wegner designed the  shell chair in 1963 but it took over 30 years for it to be a true hit.
This now iconic three legged wonder has now been striped by Paul Smith and received other looks and textiles from Maharam . It was made for the 50th anniversary of this popular rounded veneer  seat that also usually can be seen in leather at Danish Carl Hansen & søn that produce and sell it worldwide.

Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s.
