Paul Smith and Carl Hansen & Søn Commemorate Hans J. Wegner with Special Furniture

Paul Smith has made his signature stripes a branding animal on their own, putting them on everything from swimwear, sneakers and even soccer ballsEarlier this year, we showed you his striped Shell Chair made for Carl Hansen & Søn which honored the 50th anniversary of the chair that was first made by Hans J. Wegner. The late Danish designer produced many recognizable pieces of furniture under Carl Hansen like the Wishbone Chair and Wing Chair, which get another revival this year to celebrate Wegner’s would-be 100th birth year. The Smith-designed (and Maharam-weaved) multicolor fabrics are upholstered on Wegner’s iconic frames made of bent wood and metal. His retro designs meet even more retro patterns, making up a collection of single-seaters, cushioned chairs and sofas that truly honor his legacy of expert craft. Shop the made-to-order collection here.
