Shell lounge chair, model FH 1936 designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1948 and shortly manufactured by Fritz Hansen in the early fifties. After the second world war various designers experimented with molded plywood. This chair was one of the results of Wegners efforts with at that time new technique of the future.

The frame is executed with traditional cabinetmaker's work in solid beech wood and two molded plywood shells in teak veneer. The chair has some old joint repairs and is upholstered at some point decades ago. The wood has been lightly cleaned and refinished tp preserve it's patina. The chair is in very good solid condition. Upholstery is also still in good condition but can be reupholstered if desired. The chair has a comfortable sitting position and great vintage appearance.
