Sculptural design for small spaces

A beautifully crafted fusion of aesthetics, function and comfort, Hans J. Wegner’s CH72 sofa was first presented in 1952 at the Danish Furniture Design exhibition in Copenhagen. Featuring compact proportions and a slimline frame, the two-seater sofa is perfectly suited to a smaller home. Its flowing form is also a pleasure to behold from all angles, making it an ideal choice for an open-plan space. A thorough understanding of craftsmanship and upholstery allowed the iconic Danish designer to conceive this sofa, the design of which is realized with a series of complex techniques – in particular, where the fabric meets the slim wooden armrests. The CH72 sofa is characterized by a sculptural, fully upholstered frame, a loose seat cushion, and elegant tapered legs in solid wood. The armrests and legs are available in oak and walnut with various finishes, while upholstery fabrics come in an array of colors and textures.

Hans J. Wegner

Designer
Among Danish furniture designers, Hans J. Wegner is considered one of the most creative, innovative and prolific. Often referred to as the master of the chair, Wegner created more than 500 chairs in his lifetime – many of them considered masterpieces. He is probably best known for his iconic Wishbone Chair which has been in continuous production since 1950. The core of Wegner’s legacy is his focus on bringing the inner workings – the soul – of the furniture to the exterior, where the simplicity and functionality can be appreciated.
