CH72 Sofa

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Carl Hansen & Søn has revived the lounge chair, CH71, and sofa, CH72, highlighting Hans J. Wegner's unique mastery of upholstery and furniture craftsmanship. Wegner possessed a rare ability to unite aesthetics, function and comfort - a talent clearly evident in the sculptural furniture set that the world-famous Danish architect and designer first introduced in 1952. The CH71 lounge chair and CH72 two-seater sofa, which have not been in production since the late 1970s, now join the Carl Hansen & Søn collection.

    Both the CH71 and CH72 are characterized by relatively small dimensions, a slim, comfortable, fully upholstered frame, and round, tapered legs in solid wood. The comfortable furniture set features loose cushions and upholstered armrests that are finished with elegant, rounded, solid wood handles.

    Hans J. Wegner

    Hans J Wegner (1914-2007) trained as a cabinet-maker before attending the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts, where he later lectured from 1946 to 1953. From 1938 to 1942, he worked as a furniture designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller«s architectural practice. In 1943, he set up his own office in Gentofte and collaborated with Børge Mogensen in the design of an apartment shown at the 1946 Cabinetmakers Exhibition in Copenhagen. Throughout his long career, he has designed furniture extensively for Johannes Hansen and Fritz Hansen. The Royal Society of Arts, London, made him an Honorary Royal Designers for Industry in 1959.
