The Hans J. Wegner three-legged CH07 Shell chair, or Smile Chair, was originally introduced in 1963.  A limited series was produced but the project came to a standstill. The chair was relaunched in 1997 and after 34 years in hiding, the chair finally got its breakthrough. In fact, one of the original shell chairs from the 1960s sold for $20,000 at Christie's in London in 1999.
