The idea for Jörg Boner’s ‘Wogg 56′ table originates from the tradition of the joiner’s craft. A plain table, it’s made of solid wood with a relatively thin table top, only 28 mm deep, that appears to hover above the four legs, which are also made of solid wood.

“A large, solid surface must always be stabilised, otherwise it can become warped, crooked, or uneven.” says Wogg. “The solution to this problem is the dovetailed batten. This has been used for hundreds of years to help a large wooden surface keep its shape. Traditionally, it is positioned on both of the shorter sides of the surface, crossways to the grain.”

“The Wogg 56 table is made the same way. But it wouldn’t be a Wogg product if this tradition hadn’t been freshly examined and optimised for production in a manufactory. The wood specialists at Wogg have searched for and found a contemporary solution. The dovetail batten on the Wogg 56 is an invisible metal profile. It stabilises the table and defines the position of both pairs of legs. These are screwed on, and for transportation purposes can simply be removed and packed away to save space. The design is plain yet sophisticated. It combines traditional craftsmanship with contemporary technical and formal demands.”
