With its modern shape and classic design, the asymmetric Sideways Sofa invites conversation. The sofa, now launched by Carl Hansen & Søn, was designed by Danish designer Rikke Frost.

Carl Hansen & Søn represents more than 110 years of dedication to quality craftsmanship, unique partnerships and visionary design concepts. The company has now partnered with talented Danish designer Rikke Frost, who has created a sofa embodying a modern idiom, solid craftsmanship, and classic materials with a clear reference to the Danish Modern movement.

The Sideways Sofa combines classic materials, such as wood and paper cord, with a modern asymmetric shape that serves a clear purpose.

The Sideways Sofa’s steam-bent backrest and organically shaped seat form two seats that place the parties opposite each other, thus promoting conversation. Open and inviting, the low backrest is made of solid wood and woven cord for a light elegant look, while the seat and back are upholstered in textile to create optimal comfort.

It took Rikke Frost just three weeks to design the sofa’s prototype as part of Danmarks Radio’s TV programme ‘Denmark’s Next Classic’, where the sofa took first place in its category. The details and craftsmanship have subsequently been refined – the upholstery, the backrest and solid wood legs – with the shape and function coming together to produce a beautifully balanced sofa.

The sofa will be in stores from February 2021.
