With this chair, designer Nicholai Wiig Hansen has reinterpreted the classic shell chair and added a striking elegance. The rounded corners and curved waist counterbalance the rigorous design of the chair and give it a warm and welcoming feel.
Apart from the aesthetics of the chair, a great deal of work has been put into developing areas such as its 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 backrest is slightly more open than on most chairs, making it more comfortable when you lean back.
Nicholai Wiig Hansen has had his own design studio since he was 26 years old. When Nicholai designs he uses himself as the target group. Proportions are extremely important in his work and details are not added from a decoration perspective but only if they serve some kind of purpose.
He is inspired by everything that surrounds him and especially art, food, nature and machinery. When Nicholai Wiig Hansen designs a new product he always thinks the product to end in his head before sketching a single drawing. Everything from production to form and all the way to the end-user perspective.
