A Floor Lamp with Character

Hello is a floor lamp that adds light and character to its surroundings through its simple, clear and playful character.

Hello has a futuristic expression with the round forms of its shade and body giving the lamp character. It is almost calling out in a hushed way. Hello’s inner shade in acrylic reflects the light and creates a soft and pleasant surrounding light. The body, made of beech, contrasts against the steel shade and adds warmth and a playful expression to the floor lamp.

The idea for Hello came when Jonas Wagell needed a large lamp for an architect project – a lamp which was to have a form that resembled a mobile. He ended up with a simple construction of several small aluminium shades attached to a piece of wood. This planted the seed for creating a floor lamp.

Jonas Wagell explains: “Many existing lamps either have a very technological appearance or look quite basic and cheap. Floor lamps – and lamps in general – which have a simple design but also a strong character and a high quality and finish are difficult to come by. Hello is an attempt to fill that gap.”

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it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time.”
