"iF DESIGN AWARD 2018" for guide castore from Wagner
The novel guide castor for extendable tables “RO 99” has convinced the jury of the iF International Forum Design: they conferred the premium component from Wagner the international design prize “iF DESIGN AWARD 2018”.
The „RO 99“ has already been awarded “Winner” at the “ICONIC AWARDS 2018: Innovative Interior”. The new mounting castor allows the quick and easy enlargement of even heavy, solid dining tables, desks or conference tables without dominant visual appearance. It is integrated into the table leg and thus, in context with the furniture design, it is quasi invisible.
The functional principle of the novel castor is simple for the user: by gently lifting of the table, thanks to an ingenious spring mechanism, the castor is pressed out of the casing, locks, and the table top can be extended on rolling table legs without great effort. As soon as the table has reached the desired position, the castor locks again by pressing gently onto the table top. Now the table stands stable, the castor is inside of the table leg again and no more visible. For minimizing the table again, a gently lifting of the table top is sufficient as well, then the castor is ready for use and the table legs are ready for rolling. After minimizing, the table gets back its stable position by gently pressing on the table top. (Photo: Roland Wagner)
