The challenge to design a new upholstered chair for the Swiss company Wogg resulted in a new type of chair, which was presented for the first time in 2007 at the furniture fair in Milan. It took a total of four years of development time before it was ready for serial production in 2009. Two pads are wrapped around a delicate wooden frame of solid ash wood and fixed in place with press studs. It is a simple method to fold and fix in place the two-dimensional quilted pads.

Forming a seat shell with a collar wrapped around the backrest, these pads are the actual innovation. The fabric parts, made from pure wool and pressed between two aluminium shells, can be produced as two-dimensional pieces. Precisely measured and welded in a high frequency procedure, it only takes a few seconds for them to leave the press. Wogg 42 is designed as an industrial product through and through.
