About

Funky Tradition

Flag is a minimalistic and funky candle holder with a geometric and firm expression. It is a new interpretation of the classical chamber candle holder – a light candle holder in five warm colors

In the old days, the chamber candle holder was used to provide light at night. Today, candlelight is used to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. With clear references to the chamber candle holder, Flag has a recognizable function and modern expression and is easily moved by picking it up in the little flag.

Flag’s design was inspired by the little signal flags on floating buoys used to send signals to sailors. Designed to hold a single candle, the candle holder has a classic expression that would suit any interior style.

Jonas Wagell explains: “I was inspired by the language used at sea, where small flags on buoys warn and inform sailors. The base of the candle holder resembles a floating buoy and the little handle a semaphore flag. In the same way as the buoys, the Flag candle holder attracts attention and creates light.”

Jonas Wagell

Jonas Wagell was born in Linköping and worked as a graphic designer and project manager until 2001 where he started considering a future within the field of product- and interior design. Jonas started studying Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at 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 have always been fascinated by minimalism but often find myself lacking something personal or a trace from the creator. Maybe my work could be described as “expressive minimalism”. I believe it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time.”
