The tropical colours of the East meet with the sophisticated, clean, and modern designs of the West when Carl Hansen & Son’s iconic Shell Chair by Hans J. Wegner is paired with luxury Thai silks from Jim Thompson.
Carl Hansen & Son’s three-legged Shell Chair is a masterful piece of Scandinavian design, easily recognized for its unique winged shape. Originally launched in 1963, the iconic chair has been reworked with a collection of hand-woven Thai silks from Jim Thompson. 16 fabrics are available in total, in a myriad of patterns and bright colourways. The silks have been categorized into four different themes, inspired by gemstones. Choose from Red Coral, Blue Sapphire, Golden Citrine, or Green Jade, each including four fabrics in a variety of structures and complex textures. As well as a choice of silks, all 16 designs can be combined with wooden frames in various types and finishes. Choose from: white oiled oak or smoked oak, walnut oiled, beech lacquered in anthracite gray, green grass, purple blue, berry red or vanilla white.
The diverse colour offering from Jim Thompson, and the wide selection of woodwork from Carl Hansen, have been developed with designers in mind, allowing for a chair that is unique, personal and well suited to individual tastes.
This special collection is available for a limited period only, from 1st November to 31st December 2017.
