The Peek Floor Lamp is simplistic, humble and somewhat quirky in its form.
Designed by Jonas Wagell, as a counterpart to Peek Table Lamp, Jonas wanted to create an object
that expressed personality and encouraged intuitive engagement. Made up of only three components, the lamp has a heavy base with a long slender stem and a shade which gracefully peeks over the back of a sofa or armchair. The base comes with a concave feature creating a small storage space for the essential stationary, jewellery and other small items. The tip of the stem, as well as being a design feature, also doubles up as a functional dimmer.
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.
