Jonas Wagell was born in Linköping and worked as a graphic designer and project manager until 2001, when he started considering a future within the field of product and interior design.
Jonas started studying Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at the 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've always been fascinated with minimalism, but I often find myself missing something personal or an author's touch. Perhaps my work could be described as "expressive minimalism". I believe it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage at some level, without the risk of becoming outdated with time."
