Hand-woven silk and CH07


Carl Hansen & Son has initiated a collaboration with Jim Thompson Fabrics – the world’s largest manufacturer of hand-woven silk.

For two months, from November 1 to December 31, 2017, it will be possible to acquire Hans J. Wegner’s sculptural shell chair Ch07 upholstered with silk fabrics.

Carl Hansen & Son has selected 16 different fabrics from Jim Thompson and collected them in four distinctive gemstone colour themes – Red Coral, Blue Sapphire, Golden Citrine and Green Jade, each with four underlying shades and textures.

The frame comes in many different wood types and surface treatments – in combination with the fabrics it gives the freedom to design a very personal shell chair.
