I remember first coming across this chair on Pinterest and thinking Oh my! Isn’t this design something special! Finally I was able to track down the designer of this gorgeous piece, and now I would love to share it with you all. Behold the Shell Chair by Portuguese company Branca Lisboa.
Stunning isn’t it? The lounge chair is constructed with birch plywood and is available in a natural or a white pigmented oil finish. The curves of the wood and lines in the piece mimic the structure of a shell creating a visually spectacular design, but also a strong and sturdy structure. The joinery and craftmanship also appear second to none.
Although based on a shell, the form of this chair also reminds me a bit of the belly of a whale. I can imagine having a “Jonah” moment as I sit, and get swallowed up by, this unique design!
