Cooperation of superlatives: The WAGNER brand and the internationally renowned architects Titus Bernhard plan together with sedak, who contribute the largest pane of glass in theworld, the new WAGNER Design Lab
The new building is intended to bring design and architecture into unison at the highest level and – as with the development of the new D1 chair collection – redefine the limits of what is possible. Mounted on narrow stilts, the building forms a “floating platform” built completely over the Wagner family's existing former residence. Four glass panes are planned, each one nearly 3.51 x 20 metres in size. It is one of the biggest single panes of glass in the world produced to date. They are essentially display windows where WAGNER's new chair collection will be presented to the world. The building, open nearly seamlessly on both long sides, is a design lab, showroom and workplace all in one. Placed in the beautiful environment of the Langenneufnach company headquarters, it symbolises the brand's receptiveness to new developments, new insights and new design challenges. The WAGNER design lab is being planned and implemented by Titus Bernhard architects.
The office in Augsburg currently employs nineteen employees and is proud of their numerous competitive achievements, teaching appointments, publications and successfully completedprojects both in and outside the country. Just like the architecture office, the company sedak is also located very close to the home of WAGNER, in Gersthofen near Augsburg. As a supplier of the largest glass panes in the world, the company has developed into the global technology and innovation leader for large-format insulating and safety glass. sedak has more than ten years of experience in the processing of panes in oversized sizes and is regarded as a pioneering specialist in this segment. With 170 employees and an office in New Jersey, the medium-sized company produces glass for the most spectacular construction projects around the world. Customers and architects from all over the world will be able to experience this extraordinary location in person starting in spring 2019!
