Jakob Wagner

This weeks' featured designer is one of the most awarded and respected figures on the Danish design scene

Jakob Wagner (b. 1963) holds a BSc in design engineering from the Danish Academy of Engineering (now the Technical University of Denmark, DTU) and a degree in product design from Art Center in Montreux, Switzerland. He is also one of Denmark’s most respected and award-winning designers.

In 1993, following internships and studies in the United States, Italy and France, Jakob Wagner founded Jakob Wagner Studio in Copenhagen.

The initial focus was on high-tech products for medical and sports applications; later products for home use were added. This led to product lines for Alessi, Bang & Olufsen, Menu, Muuto and Stelton as well as furniture projects for Cappellini, B&B Italia, Moroso and Hay.

Jakob Wagner has more than 20 years’ experience in the design field. His designs have been exhibited around the world and are included as part of the permanent exhibition at MoMA in New York City. He has received numerous awards, including six IF Awards, three Red Dot Awards, Bundespreis and Designer of the Year.

Jakob Wagner’s design is known for its characteristic landscape of form, driven by a quest to strike the right balance between opposing elements, such as masculine/feminine, static/dynamic, symmetrical/asymmetrical etc. Wagner’s simple yet sophisticated design captures the essence of a product in a minimalist, poetic and playful solution.
