Designed by Hans Wegner, 1965
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son
When Hans J. Wegner designed the two sofas CH162 & CH163 in 1965, he merged innovative comfort with his characteristic emphasis on making the structural elements visible - and to flawless results.
Carl Hansen & Søn discovered this sofa design, which Wegner created for the modern living room of his day, in the designer's vast archives - and relaunched it in 2013.
Wegner's unparalleled attention to detail is visible throughout, as is his ability to transform functionally necessary elements into unique details.
The two-seater CH162 sofa is built upon a solid beech wood frame whose vertical and horizontal lines are softened by upholstered cushions made of a foam core surrounded by European down and cold foam. Using down in a sofa construction was a brand new idea at the time and enabled Wegner to infuse exceptional comfort into a fairly geometric shape.
