"Owning a Wanscher‐chair is an adventure every day, and will be so even serveral hundred years from now, for this is how long it lasts." - Danish newspaper Politiken, 1958

OW602 is a classic Danish design redolent of both English and Oriental furniture-art. The sofa was originally designed for the Carpenters Guild Exhibition in 1960 as part of a complete living room set. It is a simple and beautiful 3‐seater sofa, well suitable for the modern home. It has a simple timeless expression with its visible solid wood legs and firm yet soft upholstery providing great comfort. The sofa works equally well alone or paired.

Ole Wanscher was born in Copenhagen in 1903 and was an architect and professor of architecture with furniture design as his specialty. He came to shape Danish furniture, both as a designer and as a master teacher. Construction and form were of the utmost importance to him, treating furniture design as if it was a branch of architecture. His furniture designs are now considered to be modern classics ‐ sophisticated and functional with an exquisite attention to detail.

The sofas are handmade over a frame of beech and offered with exposed wood legs in a variety of options. The cushions consist of a foam core surrounded by European down and cold foam, upholstered in your choice of fabric or leather. Available as a 2 or 3 seater (OW603) sofa.

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.
