The Shell collection is based on one of Niko Kralj’s most exemplary designs.

Niko developed the notion of using two plywood parts in the early 1950s, aiming to create an ergonomic ‘Lupina’ chair that formed a single, basic component. With various shapes, applications and frames, the concept has been used for decades in offices and homes as well as for public seating.

Over time, the quintessential model, which we now refer to as Shell, has come to embody the most iconic approach to the concept of two folded pieces of wood. Its bold contour and smooth curves make this chair instantly recognisable and a pure design classic.
