The Hans Wegner Shell Chair is a high quality reproduction of the Hans Wegner original designed in 1963. Like many great works of art, the Hans Wegner Shell Chair was not truly appreciated in its time. It was re-released in 1997 though and quickly received its recognition it deserved. In 1999, the Hans Wegner Shell Chair was given the highest possible grade in The Technological Institute of Denmark's test program. In 2000, one of the original chairs produced in the 1960's was auctioned for $20,000.

Hans J. Hans Wegner began his career as a cabinet maker. After studying at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts he worked as a furniture designer under Arne Jacobsen and Erik Moller. Hans Wegner is regarded as one of the most innovative Danish furniture designers, as well as with helping to make Danish design popular internationally.

Just received 2 shell chairs with special order leather. They are beautiful! I ordered from Inmod after seeing the original chair which was 3x the price. This chair looks just like the original and is comparable quality. Special order arrived when promised.I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Great value
August 23, 2015
Like others, i appreciate that this chair is a much more affordable option of the original. I've not seen the original except online, but they appear to be be very similar. I purchased the walnut with standard leather. My only minor complaint is that it looks like not enough stain was applied on one small part of the chair. Not very noticeable and certainly not worth retuning. Overall I'm quite happy with it
Pros:
Value compared to the original

This soft Brazilian leather is both durable and lightweight. Migliore is .9mm-1.1mm thick, and the semi-aniline dyeing process preserves the leather's qualities and protects it from wear and staining. It is smooth to the touch and is elegant in appearance. Choose from sleek natural light, medium and dark tones or go bold with our sexy Lipstick Red.

Premio Semi-Aniline Leather
Taking durability and thickness to the next level, this Italian-made leather also uses a top-grain, Brazilian hide. At 1.mm-1.3mm thick, our Premio collection offers a heavier alternative to Migliore -- one that will withstand greater demands in everyday use. The semi-aniline dyeing process will preserve the natural beauty of this leather for years to come. Premio offers a sleek black, a bright white and two grays to fit any space.

Superiore Full-Aniline Leather
As its name would imply, Superiore reigns supreme in terms of look, feel and durability. Superiore is a luxury Italian-made leather, uses Italian hides, and is the thicker, full-aniline "next-step-up" to our Premio collection. It is the softest of our leather offerings, yet it's also the thickest, heaviest and most durable (at 1.3mm-1.5mm thick). Dyed throughout the full thickness of the hide, in an array of browns (or a rich Obsidian Black), Superiore is an ultra-high quality leather that will stand the test of time, and hold up well against fading and wear from everyday use.

Pony Skin
Don't let the name fool you -- no ponies were harmed in the making of this beautiful standout. This is a hand-worked mixture of European cow skin (with hair) and pure aniline leather. A combination of black, white & brown hairs, each hide is a one-of-a-kind, will vary due to the unique nature and character of cowhide, and is sure to provide any mid-century classic with a distinguished beauty all its own, and a strikingly iconic look that radiates authenticity.
