The chair’s design is simple and clear. The seat is bent down on four sides and holds the legs and the back on both outer sides. Molded plywood shapes the aesthetics of the chair. Pressing plywood into shape is an old technique that has seen a rapid development with the introduction of CNC milling technology in recent years. Complex molded parts can be inserted in milling tools and pressed directly with the plywood. This has opened new paths for shape and design. As with the chair Wogg 50, whose structural center is the core pressed in below the seat shell.
