The candleholder Nordic Light has become a design icon thanks to its simplicity and flexibility; unfold the arms and shape it at will.
Jonas Grundell has combined smooth wood surfaces and matte varnish with a black iron loop that connects the different parts. When the lights have burnt down one can fold up the candleholder which then takes up a minimum of storage space.
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it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time."
Design House Stockholm work with both established and unknown designers. Our focus is on developing great products rather than name-dropping. When we first met Harri Koskinen, he was still an unknown student in Helsinki, but he had an amazing idea. An idea that would generate a worldwide success — the Block Lamp.
Our ambition is to gather a collection of the very best Scandinavian design today. The term ‘Scandinavian’ refers to a philosophic and aesthetic perspective, rather than geography and nationality: we have French, German, Australian, American and Chilean designers in our network. The result is a collection of design classics with timeless appeal and qualities that outlives temporary trends
