Simplified to the core

Swede Jonas Wagell launches his JWDA lamp together with Scandi-brand Menu

Jonas Wagell is a Swedish architect and designer based in Stockholm. His work has come to be known for simplistic playfulness and clever compact living, with recent collaborations reaching as far as China, Taiwan and North America.

Now, he has worked in tandem with Scandi design brand Menu, in launching a new lamp called JWDA, in both a pendant and table version.

The JWDA pendant is part of a series of lamps inspired by traditional oil lamps. The lamp is made from honest materials – metal and glass – ennobled by the refinement of its design.

The base of the lamp is kept in polished brass or brushed metal. The brass version is mirror polished but not lacquered so the metal will darken and patinate over time. The glass shade is made from mouth-blown opal glass, and the knobs are bronzed brass and oxidized steel.

Simplified and reduced of clutter to its essence, JWDA is minimalist lamp – but with a strong character. Its roundedness expresses warmth and friendliness. The lamp represents a study in the contrasts between the raw character of the metal and the delicate glass.

Unusually for a pendant lamp, JWDA features a dimmer switch on its base, a practical function that makes this a perfect pendant to hang over a dining table or office desk.
