Carl Hansen & Son in preview at the 2015 Salone Internazionale del Mobile proposes the complete Colonial collection:
the famous Colonial Chair is flanked by the Colonial Sofa and the Colonial Coffee Table. La Colonial thus becomes a complete collection, a symbol of Wanscher's approach to minimalist and functional design.
Few people know that Ole Wanscher, the designer of the Colonial Chair, had also planned and designed a two-seater sofa. However, the sofa was only produced in small quantities. To complete the relaunch of the collection, Carl Hansen & Son today also presents the Colonial Coffee Table, with a simple and classic design with a square shelf.
The dimensions of the sofa are contained and its expressive force is due precisely to the original and slender structure whose individual components are held together by simple joints. A feature that makes Wanscher's design instantly recognizable are the sophisticated slightly curved armrests. Like the Colonial Chair, the Colonial Sofa (model OW149-2) is available in walnut, cherry, oak and mahogany, with a lacquered, soap or oil finish. The sofa is available with leather or fabric cushions.
