Design Hans Wegner, 1960
Solid wood top and base
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son
The CH162 sofa was designed by Hans J. Wegner. This two-seater design merged new ideas for comfort with Wegner’s signature emphasis on making the structural elements visible – with impeccable results.
Hans J. Wegner designed the CH162 sofa in 1965 and it was relaunched in 2013 when Carl Hansen & Søn discovered the design in Wegner’s vast archives. Wegner’s great attention to detail is visible throughout, as is his ability to transform functionally necessary elements into unique, essential aspects of the design. The two-seater sofa is built upon a solid wood frame, its vertical and horizontal lines softened by upholstered cushions. Using down in sofas – a brand new idea at the time – enabled Wegner to add exceptional comfort into a fairly geometric form. The enlarged wooden plugs in the armrests artfully conceal screws that simplify re-upholstering, while also bringing attention to the elegant frame construction. The sofa is available as the two-seater CH162 and the three-seater CH163.
