WAGNER x Hadi Teherani
Iconic design meets groundbreaking production technology. In collaboration with the #wagnerdesignlab team, Hadi Teherani has placed ergonomic sitting in a completely new context and redefined the boundaries of design – with the help of the 3D printing process, 3-dimensional movable active stools are created in series production in our production plant in Langenneufnach, precisely adapted to every body size. Ecologically designed from Greentec Bio-Filament, a material made from 100% renewable raw materials that is biodegradable.
And the highlight – Wagner also offers a new ergonomic upgrade for all movement enthusiasts.

The low version is the perfect complement for tables in a classic working height. In its basic version, the W3D with comfortable upholstery is a real design highlight and an eye-catcher in every room.
Hadi Teherani was fascinated by moving seating from the first time he met Peter Wagner. The idea was to create a sustainable seating option with movement – preferably using additive manufacturing. With the W3D, this has now been realized. The goal is to bring the „Active stool“ into series production, if you can even call the 3D printing process that. The idea is based on decentralized manufacturing, i.e. printing should actually take place at the location where the product is needed.
Peter Wagner, Wagner Living, has been experimenting with 3D printing projects for quite some time – including the 3D One, which was developed in the Wagner Design Lab. The shared goal is that at some point only the data will be shipped and the ecological footprint will be reduced to a minimum. For Peter Wagner, this was a completely new challenge for the production site and the corresponding organizational structure. Which he gladly accepted.
The starting point for the conceptual design development was to create a shape that could only be produced using the 3D printing process. The description of the minimal surface by the mathematician H.F. Scherk from 1885 served as inspiration. In the design development, this basic shape was supplemented by the static and visually striking ribbing/folding in the surface. The stool model is parametrically constructed and thus individually scalable to any height.
