New York-based Carl Hansen & Son’s three-legged Shell chair was reworked with a collection of hand-woven Thai silks from Jim Thompson.

Sixteen fabrics are available in total, in various patterns and bright colorways. The silks were categorized into four different themes, inspired by gemstones. These include red coral, blue sapphire, golden citrine and green jade, each including four fabrics in a variety of structures and textures.

All 16 designs can be combined with wooden frames in various types and finishes, including white oiled oak or smoked oak, walnut oiled, beech lacquered in anthracite gray, green grass, purple blue, berry red or vanilla white.
