The OW602 sofa by Ole Wanscher is a classic two-seater masterpiece. It forms part of a set of furniture that Wanscher designed where he blended influences from near and far with superior craftsmanship and comfort.

Superior craftsmanship and classic comfort

The OW602 sofa was designed by Ole Wanscher in 1960 as part of a complete living room set. As with many of his other works, Wanscher found the inspiration for this series beyond the borders of his native Denmark, merging elements of classic English and Oriental furniture to create a new expression. Comfortable and elegant, with a clean and dynamic design, the OW602 sofa combines linear and organic forms to great modern effect. The sofa is still crafted by hand over solid wood frames, carrying on Wanscher’s legacy of extremely precise craftsmanship. The OW602 two-seater sofa is also available in a three-seater version, the OW603 sofa. Since their introduction in 1960, both furniture pieces have become treasured classics.

Ole Wanscher

Designer
Ole Wanscher was integral to the aesthetic and functionality of modern Danish design. Having studied under Kaare Klint, he helped shape Danish furniture design as a designer and as an educator when he took over Klint’s professorship at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Wanscher’s classic and contemporary designs made him popular. In 1958, the Danish newspaper Politiken wrote: “Owning a Wanscher chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even several hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts”.
