Design Hans Wegner, 1970
Stainless steel, European down, foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

The distinguished character of the CH102 2-seat sofa joins the CH100 series by Hans j. Wegner. It is a sumptuous sofa that works well on its own, in groups, or with the CH100 series of sofas. The CH102 lounge embodies Wegner's ideology and spirit for simplicity coupled with Carl Hansen's reputation for quality manufacturing. Wegner, with his unique understanding of materials, created many designs each with its own personality yet in a consistent language. This is part of a series that Wegner designed in 1970, produced in very limited numbers during the 1970s and reintroduced in 2008 on the occasion of Carl Hansen & Son's 10th anniversary.

Hans J. Wegner is one of the architects and designers who made Danish Design world famous. Wegner inscribes his name in the history of design first and foremost via a range of tables and chairs which are without predecessors in furniture design, yet stand in their own right as the most natural thing in the world, inevitable like new letters in the alphabet.

CH102 is hand made on a solid beech inner frame with polished stainless steel legs, visible frame and armrest fronts. Cushions are fully upholstered on all sides, built around a foam core wrapped in European down and foam granulate. This sofa series is completed by sofas & tables of various size options.

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
