Maharam Alpine Stripe Shell Chair

Maharam Shell Chair - Alpine Stripe

Maharam Shell Chair – Alpine Stripe

Alpine Stripe was designed by Sonnhild Kestler, a textile designer and hand screen printer working in Zurich. This fabric is part of Maharam’s continuing exploration into modern iterations of traditional patterns.

Alpine Stripe reinvents typical Alpine motifs through the use of vibrant color and bold composition. It is densely constructed of fine cotton yarn for incomparable color saturation and graphic clarity.

Carl Hansen & Son has paired this beautiful fabric with a walnut / lacquer frame to bring out the vibrant colors and textures. However, all woods and finishes available upon request.

Price: $3,495.00

Welcome to

This site is dedicated to one of the most distinctive lounge chairs on the planet: the CH07 Shell Chair by Hans J. Wegner.

Just as we’ve done with the Wegner Wishbone Chair, this site will serve as a library for information, images, tips and links for the CH07 Lounge Chair.

This site is owned and maintained by Danish Design Store, an authorized dealer of the entire Carl Hansen & Søn collection.

We hope the “Smile Chair” makes you grin as much as us with design delight.
