Hans Wegner CH 07

Known as "the three-legged shell chair" or just as "the shell chair", it was designed by Danish architect Hans Wegner in 1963. Although Wegner joined with Arne Jacobsen, who designed the Series 7 stacking chairs we have with our dining table, and others to design the furniture for a city hall in 1940, I find much of his furniture overly traditional. The CH 07 is obviously a different story. It's available from Carl Hansen & Son in leather, fabric or solid maple.
To me it looks like a bird about to take flight. Or like a little scurrying animal. Which means it's perfect for our apartment.
