To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner, Maharam and Paul Smith are collaborating with Danish furniture manufacturer Carl Hansen & Søn on a limited edition collection. Applying the latest textiles designed by Paul Smith in collaboration with Maharam, Big Stripe and the new Stripes by Paul Smith, to the iconic Shell Chair and other furniture from Carl Hansen & Søn gives a bold injection of color to these classic Wegner designs.
A presentation of the collection will be in the Paul Smith Milan shop from April 8th to the 13th for Salone del Mobile, as well as in Carl Hansen & Søn’s booth on the fairgrounds and showroom in the city center.
