Hans J. Wegner’s Shell Chair, designed for Danish master furniture makers Carl Hansen & Søn, is a legend of the living room. It’s also 50 years old this year and to mark the occasion, 20 of today’s top designers are each leaving their mark on the iconic design. Among them is Paul Smith, whose vision of the Shell sees his trademark parallel lines given a subtle reworking for the seat cover. It will be available as a limited edition purchase soon; for more information on the Shell Chair Project in its entirety, click here.
