The Local lamp has grown out of the mood in simple bars and relaxed restaurants, where pools of light beneath suspended lampshades create atmospheric social spots.
With this ambience as his point of departure, designer Jonas Wagell has created an understated and harmonious pendant lamp as a frame for social get-togethers.
Local consists of a suspended spun steel shade with a simple and welcoming silhouette. Spun lampshades traditionally have a metal fold at the edge to reinforce their shape. In Local, this component is highlighted to become the main character of the design. Instead of the traditional fold, the rim at the edge is enlarged and integrated into the turned shape, so that it appears as a fine detail.
The lamp is intended for both domestic and public environments and can be used either on its own or spread over a larger space. Its expression is calm and subtle, so the lamps can be multiplied without dominating the interior. With its friendly design, Local will contribute to creating a cosy and comfortable ambience.
Maintenance: Clean with damp cloth.
The lamp is compatible with bulbs from all energy classes.
Jonas Wagell was born in Linköping and worked as a graphic designer and project manager until 2001 where he started considering a future within the field of product- and interior design. Jonas started studying Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack University College, where he graduated with a MFA in 2007. Today, Jonas Wagell works with architecture and design.
“My ambition is to create simple and honest products that have strong character and warmth. Often with humor and color. I have always been fascinated by minimalism but often find myself lacking something personal or a trace from the creator. Maybe my work could be described as “expressive minimalism”. I believe it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time.”
