Congratulations to Switzerland: This year’s Gold Award in the Product category of the MATERIALICA DESIGN + Technology Award goes to WOGG Furniture AG for its W75 rollfront system and furniture application. It was presented during eMove360° Europe 2022, 6th International Trade Fair for Mobility 4.0 electric-networked-autonomous (5 to 7 October), on the evening of 5 October. The jury of experts had selected the most innovative and sustainable products and projects as finalists for this prestigious award. It is the only one worldwide positioned at the interface of design, technology and materials.
WOGG 75 is composed of a cube-shaped guide element as a sliding mechanism and aluminium profiles. The small injection-moulded plastic part, which encloses a soft rubber tyre, is clipped into the slats at any pre-milled point. The lightweight construction gets by with a material thickness of one millimetre. It can run around the corpus in a hanging or standing position. Its geometry allows individual dimensions and, for the first time, concave and convex, narrow and wide radii. In addition, the ingenious kit has eliminated a widespread weakness in sliding doors: The fronts slide quietly and without jerking. The system is internationally patented. www.wogg.ch
