Swell is a minimalistic collection of furniture for the living room with a playful, light-hearted feel.
Swell consists of a solid wooden plywood frame with Nozaq springs with HR 38 cold foam on the seat and HR 35 cold foam on the back and armrests. Over this, is a layer of supersoft S25 cold foam which ensures optimal comfort.
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.

“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it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time.”
