Jonas Wagell
"My design is focused on functional items rather than artistic objects. I appreciate products that can be used everyday and be a part of people’s lives. I believe affection and emotion is more important than exclusivity and expensive materials. My aim is to create simplistic objects that are easy to understand and use, but try to add something personal and expressive. I like to call this philosophy a ‘generous minimalism’."

Jonas Wagell (born 1973) is a Swedish architect and designer located in Stockholm. He is trained in graphics, marketing and management, design and architecture at institutions such as Konstfack, Beckmans, Berghs and Parsons and has a back record in strategic project management.
