Born in Copenhagen in 1963, Jakob Wagner did his first degree in design engineering. After studies and internships in Colorado, Milan and Paris he completed his second degree in product design at the Art Center Europe, Switzerland in 1992. His studio, established in 1993 in Copenhagen, during the first ten years worked mainly to develop high tech products for sport, professional and medical applications.
A gradual shift in focus towards the home has led to an extensive line of products for international main brands. Jakob Wagner’s work has been exhibited internationally and has received numerous awards - 3 Red Dot, 2 IF, Bundespreis, Designer of the Year, among others - and is included in the permanent exhibition at the MoMa in New York.
The Studio aims to create meaningful products that challenge both mind and senses by being simple to perceive yet complex. The goal are products with inherent natural beauty that touch people emotionally and give joy when using them.
