Carl Hansen
RF1903 Sideways Sofa


Designed by Rikke Frost
Manufactured by Carl Hansen

The Sideways Sofa from Rikke Frost combines classic materials – wood, paper cord, and high-quality upholstery textile – with a modern asymmetric shape. The steam-bent backrest is shaped from solid wood and woven paper cord for a light, elegant expression, while the seat and back are padded and upholstered for optimal comfort. The result is a sofa you want to sit in for a long time.

As digital devices challenge our traditional ways of conversation, the Sideways Sofa provides an equally modern antidote to dialogue and discovery — and, not least, downtime. Made in Denmark and created by award-winning Danish designer Rikke Frost, the distinctive design eschews the traditional forward-facing sofa in favour of a sideways position that encourages more natural conversation. In keeping with Carl Hansen & Søn’s DNA, where uncompromising craftsmanship and thoughtful expression seamlessly merge. Classic in its use of materials and contemporary in its form, the Sideways Sofa invites both comfort and conversation.
