Inspired by traditional oil lamps, Stockholm-based designer Jonas Wagnell brings these materials together into a design that is both raw and delicate.
An instant classic, The JWDA Lamp is the kind of sculptural piece that turns heads and brings new life to a room. The contrast of the delicate, rounded glass with the sturdy metal base makes for a balanced and intriguing silhouette. Reworking the dimensions of The JWDA Table Lamp to create a pared-back light with a bold personality, the floor lamp is the latest addition to the series.
Swedish architect and designer Jonas Wagell’s studio is based in downtown Stockholm but his collaborations stretch as far as China and North America. His work has come to be known for its playfulness and clever compact living. “I try to reduce unnecessary details and emphasize a function or main character, which often results in simple but expressive objects with soft shapes – and sometimes over-sized, playful details. I have come to call this a type of ‘generous minimalism’.”
And in a culture with a tendency to consume and throw away, Jonas wants to create work that stays relevant for years to come. In 2008, he was named by Wallpaper* magazine as of the world’s 50 hottest young architects.
