Seating in the fourth dimension

Anyone who sits down a lot needs to keep moving. At least that’s the theory. In reality though there is often too little time to compensate for sedentary behavior at a desk. With this in mind, one way that design can make an important contribution to wellbeing in the workplace is being demonstrated by Wagner Living at Orgatec.

"D1" by Stefan Diez represents the consistent advance of the three-dimensionally moving Dondola seat joint, and reflects this at the same time in the overall design language of this range of chairs. From the swivel chair to the lounge chair to the stool, they all feature a uniform product language. Thanks to the new type of joint, a new level of sitting has evolved: Aside from the seat, the back is also given pleasing scope to move. In addition, at the desk your radius of action sideways is increased. The unusual flexibility fosters a new sitting experience – “seating in the fourth dimension” as Wagner Living calls it.

At the leading international trade show for modern work environments, Wagner Living will present the prize-winning results of various collaborations with designers such as Stefan Diez in hall 6.1, B068. The D1 chair line has already received official Stylepark recognition – with the presentation of the Stylepark Selected Award at imm 2018 – and chairs, specifically swivel chairs, are part of the DNA of the family-run company from Langenneufnach, nr. Augsburg. Moritz Wagner invented the “Wirtshausstuhl” pub chair in 1949 – a straightforward and extremely robust classic made of wood. Using a chair’s function to support the wellbeing of the person sitting on it, be it in living spaces or cafes and restaurants, was an important aspect of development right from the outset. Today, brothers Peter and Rainer Wagner are taking the Wagner brand into the future. With the further development of the three-dimensionally moving Dondola seat joint, Wagner Living has reached another crucial milestone in its history.
