Jonas Wagell is a Swedish architect and designer born in 1973. The studio JWDA was founded in 2008 and is today located in a converted car repair shop in central Stockholm, but collaborations span from Scandinavia to China, Italy and North America. Wagell’s architecture work is perhaps most known for the prefab house concept Mini House (2007-2012), early recognized by Wallpaper* Magazine which named him one of the “world’s 50 hottest young architects” shortly after graduation in 2008. Today the work is primarily focused on product and furniture design, but on occasion the studio also consults with art and design direction.
Jonas Wagell’s design has been described as minimal with soft and friendly shapes. He was introduced to design through an interest in graphics, print and typography and perhaps this has influenced today’s work with simplistic and clear, but expressive design language. Today the studio’s design collaborations include Scandinavian companies such as Menu, Normann Copenhagen and Muuto, but also Tacchini in Italy, Design Within Reach in USA and Zaozuo in China, to name a few.
