Shell Dining Chair by Niko Kralj
Significant and enduring modern design classics.
The Shell takes its well-deserved place among the legendary works of art by Niko Kralj. The basic idea was to use two equally formed plywood panels for the seat and backrest. The chair got its final shape in 1956 and soon became the chair of choice for socialist-era offices and public waiting rooms.
The Shell Chair is extremely elegant while maintaining full ergonomics. It features a seamless combination of materials; a slender metal base supports the refined plywood seat. Today, its legacy continues to be celebrated in contemporary homes, offices and public spaces throughout the world.
