Based on the principle of their cabinet system ‘wogg 49′ designed by Atelier Oï, the Swiss manufacturer Wogg developed a completely adaptable built-in wardrobe that leaves all freedom of architectural design to the planer. The wardrobe is manufactured according to the specific requirements of the architect. A tricky technology makes this possible: The wardrobe’s outer skin is made of a single notched aluminium composite board that is extremely flexible and can be wound around bottom and lid without breaking. The patented guide element with rolls was developed for the cupboard which is not firmly attached but glued on. So there are virtually no limits to the dimensions of the cupboard in all directions.
