CH 162

Designer: Hans Wegner

The CH162 sofa for two people was designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1965. Despite a geometric appearance, the CH162 is a soft and comfortable sofa with raised sides and simple but distinctive details. Hans J. Wegner’s CH162 sofa was designed in 1965 and relaunched in 2013 when it caught the attention of Carl Hansen & Søn while looking through the architect’s photo and model archives. In this stringent design, Wegner demonstrates how even a small detail can become so significant that it goes on to become the furniture’s hallmark. The special feature is the enlarged cover caps in the armrests which conceal the screws in the upper part of the characteristically shaped legs that hold the armrest upholstery to the wooden frame. The wooden cap is designed larger for decorative reasons, moved slightly back from the front of the legs and placed so that the grain is in the transversal direction of the leg’s wood grains. The solid wooden frame of Wegner’s sofa is firmly upholstered. The pillows have down wrapped around the core foam, which allowed Wegner to add softness and good comfort to the geometric form. The sofa is available in two sizes: CH162 as a two-seater and CH163 as a three-seater.
