CH163 Sofa

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    When Hans J. Wegner designed this sofa in 1965, he merged innovative comfort with his characteristic trait of making the structural elements visible. While the sofa is built upon a solid beech frame, the upholstered cushions are made of a foam core surrounded by European down and cold foam. The use of down for sofas was a brand new idea and the plug in the armrest conceals a screw while highlighting the construction.
