AXPO street lamps by Jörg Boner and Louis Poulsen; photo by Milo Keller

Jörg Boner productdesign has developed a new product family of street lamps in collaboration with the Danish lamp producer Louis Poulsen. In tandem with the construction of an additional office building at its headquarters in Baden, the Swiss energy company AXPO wanted to install new lighting across the whole site. Factors such as energy efficiency and contemporary design were important aspects of the brief given to Jörg Boner’s studio. It was equally important to the client that the lamps wouldn’t be a source of light pollution at night.

The aim of the product family was to establish a formal connection between wall washer lighting and pole lights. The lamps have a very sculptural character, resulting from the fusion of mast and head.

The street lamps and pathfinder lights appear in varying heights of 5m, 4.3m, and 3.8m; the wall washer is 1m in height. HQI illuminants are placed inside an aluminium lamp head, together with a high-quality reflector. Individual lamps are equipped with an LED flag closer to ground level. When the lamps are switched off later at night, they function as markers and signals. The application areas vary with the height of the mast, the strength of the chosen illuminant, and the light temperature.

Louis Poulsen plans to go into serial production of the lamps for the Swiss market.

Prototypes of the new Wogg50 Chair by Jörg Boner for Wogg

Convincing use of forms meets state-of-the-art processing. The result is a chair of the latest generation.

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.

'Thermos' by Jörg Boner, photo by Milo Keller

The Swiss company Nestlé asked Jörg Boner to create a thermos for their ‘Nescafé’ concept. In order to play with the culture of coffee Boner suggested a combination of a coffeepot and two cups: “A cup of coffee you drink together, you take the time for each other and swap ideas…this was one focus of the project”, Boner explains.

“The elastic band that fixes the cups into place can be transformed into a handle in just one move, turning the termos bottle into a coffee pot. The way in which it plays with both archetypes is characteristic of the product.”
