Product description

My Chair is a simple, all-round stackable chair in a timeless design. With this chair, the designer Nicholai Wiig Hansen has reinterpreted the classic shell chair and added a striking elegance and harmony. The rounded corners and curved waist counterbalance the rigorous design of the chair and give it a warm and welcoming feel.

On closer inspection of the chair you will gradually notice a number of understated details, bearing witness to the fact that all of its features are deliberate and carefully worked out. For example, no standard parts have been used on the chair, but instead customised solutions have been implemented allowing a completely aesthetic experience no matter from what angle you look at the chair.

Apart from the aesthetics of the chair, a great deal of depth has been gone into areas such as durability and comfort. The shell consists of moulded plywood, a durable material that is also flexible and moves with the body. The curves of the shell follow the shape of the body while the angle of My Chair's back rest is slightly more open than on most other chairs. This makes it more comfortable when you lean back.

Nicholai Wiig Hansen says: “My aim was to design a chair with unequalled harmony and to try to come close to the indefinable quality that, in my opinion, lifts a design to another level. My Chair is a mixture of something familiar and something new, something neutral yet characterful, something present but not dominating, something simple as well as complex and something rigorous as well as curved. In other words, My Chair is a shell chair the way I think it should be.”

My Chair is available in ash or oak with a lacquered steel frame and comes in one of six classic colors. Additionally, a totally black version of the chair is also available. With its many combination possibilities, My Chair is suitable for numerous different environments and styles. You can, for example, choose a My Chair in ash with white legs for the dining table or in the conference room for a light, Scandinavian decor or mix the different types of shells and frame colors to create your own feel.
