Wegner + Paul Smith Shell Chair

Carl Hansen & Son teamed up with designer Paul Smith to create a limited edition furniture collection that pays homage to what would have been Wegner’s 100th birthday. The collection includes a version of the CH07 Shell chair with Maharam’s Big Stripe fabric: Paul Smith CH07 Shell Chair.

What better way to highlight Wegner’s bold vision than with these eye-catching fabrics?

Layers Park Double by Hella Jongerius

Layers Park Double

Layers Park Double

Layers Park Double by Hella Jongerius is a double-layer fabric consisting of three embroidered patterns that recall various landscapes: Layers Garden, Layers Park and Layers Vineyard. Wool felt, the foundation of Layers, provides a neutral textural complement to the intricate needlework of the single layer variations. Hand cutting lends a distinct artisanal character to the double-layer versions, creating windows of pattern that reveal an underlayer of either tonal or contrasting wool felt. Layers has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

This intricate fabric builds on Dutch-born Hella Jongerius’s fascination with the manipulation of traditional manufacturing methods. After extensive prototyping involving a range of woven and non-woven materials, Jongerius and the Maharam Design Studio conceived a method to bind multiple layers of wool felt with embroidery.

Carl Hansen & Son matched Double Layer with a beech frame that is painted a rich orange. All woods and finishes are available upon request. Call a Shell Chair specialist for more information: 800.688.0974.

Design 9297 by Josef Hoffmann

Design 9297 by Josef Hoffman

Design 9297 by Josef Hoffman

Created by Josef Hoffmann in 1913, Design 9297 was never manufactured and retains the name assigned to it in the mill archive. Although the original trial sample from 1913 was created with a tapestry construction, the re-edition is rendered in a satin weave; this change in construction creates an elegant sheen and purity of color that further highlights the strikingly modern and graphic nature of the design.

Josef Hoffmann was one of the founders of the Wiener Werkstätte and a proponent of the Gesamtkunstwerk. A gifted and prolific designer of architecture, furniture, utensils, clothing, posters, textiles, and wallpaper, Hoffmann was convinced of the social and spiritual benefits of harmonious living environments designed by a single creative mind. Around 1900, Hoffmann developed the geometrically refined signature style that he incorporated in designs for silver, furniture, carpets, linens, and lamps, as well as the offset pattern of Design 9297.

Carl Hansen & Son chose a oil-treated walnut frame to match the peacock colorway. All woods and finishes are available upon request. Call a Shell Chair specialist for more information: 800.688.0974.

Centric Shell Chair

The fabric for the Maharam Centric is a new take on a traditional decorative pattern. It was designed by Canadian graphic artist Marian Bantjes, who is known for precise, detailed, and obsessive handwork along with innovative patterning and ornamentation.

The Splendor color of Centric takes its inspiration from the mandala, a radial cosmic diagram that appears in sacred Buddhist and Hindu art. Bantjes’ treatment is fluid, as though the pattern was rendered in wet ink; a subtle metallic luster accentuates this effect, giving Centric a dynamic quality.

Carl Hansen & Son chose a white-painted beech frame for the Centric Chair. However, all woods and finishes are available upon request. Call a Shell Chair specialist for more information: 800.688.0974.
