Wogg strikes again

Jorg Boner designed one of my favorites pieces last Salone and this year he does it again, presenting the delicate Wogg 50 chair.

Bent plywood has been used in furniture for a long time now, but this process continues to evolve thanks to the introduction of new technologies such as CNC milling that allows the use of more complex moulds.
Jorg Boner explores the structural and aesthetical possibilities of this manufacturing process obtaining a compact and subtle chair. The ends of the seat are bent out, generating a rhombus-like shape that integrates nicely with the legs and has no rough edges towards the user. The backrest is made of a large curved plywood piece that wraps the seat, donating the chair with a remarkable visual lightness.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
