The ShellChair project

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary and ICFF, the perpetually innovative Shell Chair serves as a foil for Maharam’s diverse range of textiles, including homespun wool textures, re-editioned designs of the Wiener Werkstätte and Alexander Girard, and collaborations with Hella Jongerius and Paul Smith.

Twenty special Shell Chairs, each with a different Maharam textile and coordinating wood frame, will be on view for a month as part of the Maharam Shell Chair Project starting May 17th at the Carl Hansen & Søn showroom at 304 Hudson Street. After that, the collection will be available for sale to consumers and the A&D community through authorized dealers.
