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.
