The future is now!

This slogan has been accompanying WAGNER for a long time now. And in hardly any other industry it is that visible like it is in the automotive and the technology industry. Already now, we can daily see autonomous test vehicles on the road and there are test routes throughout Germany for this purpose.

But autonomous driving not only requires suitable networks. The question is also how the drivers or rather the “users” spend their time there. Now, the Interior clearly comes to the fore since the time or even lifetime gained can be used quite differently.

There is less space, housing shortages in big cities steadily increase and therefore mobile rooms are becoming more and more important for the society. To make more efficient use of this space, humanity has to rethink, find ideas and above all become active.

In China people are already renting cars and transport vehicles to meet in metropolitan areas because they do not have any space at home. That's the future! In order to solve these problems, action is required - NOW.

Whether as sleeping cubicle for convenient travelling or as working space for companies - depending on the type of use this new world offers endless opportunities of equipment and furnishing.

A think tank cabin, a mobile game zone or a flexible conferencing room, all of these rooms have one thing in common: the users have to sit down. Light, rotatable and movable – all these requirements are needed for a seating in the autonomous driving.

Prof. Johann Tomforde, founder of Teamobility and former managing director for development & production of the modern automobile brand MCC/SMART from the very start, has recognized that autonomous driving of the future must be equipped in a modern design and with highly movable seating furniture. While doing his market research he encountered the three-dimensional Dondola seating joint and he quickly recognized that there is a huge potential for such mobility concepts demonstrated by the new D1 chair series of WAGNER (designed by Stefan Diez). Therefore it was obvious that Teamobility applies to WAGNER with their idea and vision and to start the cooperation with an expert when it comes to dynamic sitting. For months, they together worked meticulously and researched how to sit perfectly in the new mobile of the future. Not only sitting perfectly but also feeling perfectly comfortable thanks to DONDOLA – the three-dimensionally movable seating joint of WAGNER. A new prototype for “new thinking” was created and introduced at the IAA fair for the first time.

The mobile communicates to the outside and has got a communication area inside. Advertising spaces on LED screens or communication with other road users, everything is possible with the current technology. It will probably take us a few years to verify and officially use this transport mode in traffic. But we would have to look ahead to be able to know in which subjects we need to invest our energy into. Teamobility has found a visionary partner in WAGNER to design the future together.

The WAGNER journey continues in the interior equipment. Mobile conference rooms, stand up meeting areas, think tanks up to mobile hospitality - there are no limits to the imagination of the autonomous movement!
