When Hans J. Wegner designed the CH163 & CH162 sofas 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 three-seater CH163 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.

The enlarged wooden plugs in the armrests - the sofa's most characteristic details - artfully conceal screws that simplify reupholstering while bringing attention to the simple, elegant frame construction. 

The sofa is a available as a three-seater and as a two-seater (CH162).
