Sven von Boetticher has translated the classic work chair into the present with the „S1“ swivel chair for Wagner Living. This outstanding, moving design has won three awards! All good things come in threes: therefore, together with Sven von Boetticher, we are not only pleased about the German Design Award 2022, but also about the iF Design Award 2022 and the reddot winner 2022!
For the first time, the back-friendly movement of the seat surface emerges from the geometry and the material. Sven von Boetticher has now masterfully translated the classic swivel chair into the present with the „S1“ for Wagner Living. The reduced form does not reveal the highly developed technology behind it at first glance, as it literally carries the function within itself: The Dondola joint, for which Wagner has applied for a patent, is concealed here with a completely new design and requires no support. Instead, two plastic outriggers take over the suspension and the restoring force. The balance of maximum seating comfort and sufficient surface area also includes the fact that the shape of the backrest is slightly curved to provide ideal support for many different body types.

How work affects life, thematised by the students of the Angewandte, Vienna in an exhibition curated by Matylda Krzykowski and the MAKK Cologne.
The exhibition "Workspace in progress" offers a glimpse into the future of design in the New Work. Until 31 October 2021, the MAKK Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Cologne is showing a worthwhile selection of prototypes that can help shape the new world of work.
Under the direction of Prof. Stefan Diez, the students of the Industrial Design1 department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna have been examining current and future forms of work over the course of two semesters: While the first semester dealt with the current influences on the world of work with regard to technological, economic and social changes, the second semester dealt with the production methods of these projects under the aspects of a future-oriented circular economy.
This resulted in some great work by the budding industrial designers.
WAGNER supports the students here in the implementation of various projects and in the realisation of the planned presentation WORKSPACE IN PROGRESS in the Temporary Gallery.
The exhibition WORK IN PROGRESS will take place from 06 - 31 October 2021 at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln MAKK. Further information about the exhibition is available here www.angewandte-wip.com.
