First produced in very small quantities in the 1970s, the two-seater CH102 Sofa was re-released in 2008 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Carl Hansen & Son. Combining stainless steel, wood, foam and leather - this unconventional sofa has an industrial feel without compromising on comfort.
The CH102 Sofa had an inner frame crafted from solid beechwood, and the cushions are made with a foam core surrounded by down, making them both stable and beautifully soft.
With his love of natural materials and his deep understanding of the need for furniture to be functional as well as beautiful, Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) made mid-century Danish design popular on an international scale. He began his career as a cabinetmaker in 1931 and subsequently entered the Copenhagen School of Arts & Crafts. After receiving his architectural degree in 1938, he worked as a designer in Arne Jacobsen and Erik Muller's architectural office before establishing his own office in 1943.
