The patented guide element of 'wogg 49' developed by Wogg and Atelier Oï
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.

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.
