Funky Tradition

Our latest product Flag is a minimalist and funky candlestick with a geometric and rigid expression. The Swedish designer Jonas Wagell has created this new interpretation of the classical chamber candlestick.

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 candlestick has a classic expression that would suit any interior style.

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

About Jonas Wagell:
Jonas Wagell was born in Linköping and worked as a graphic designer and project manager until 2001, but started questioning his working as a project manager instead of a designer. Therefore he started studying Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Konstfack University College, where he graduated with a MFA in 2007. His work today is divided between architecture and design.

In 2008 Jonas was named one of “the world’s 50 hottest young architects” by Wallpaper* magazine.
