Born in Copenhagen in 1963, Jakob Wagner received a B.Sc. in Design Engineering at DIA-M in Denmark (1987) and completed his second degree in Product Design at Art Center, Switzerland (1992).
In 1993 following internships/studies in the United States, Italy and France, he founded Jakob Wagner Studio in Copenhagen. The studio began by focusing on high-tech products for medical, professional and sports applications and later on home products. This led to product lines for Alessi, Bang & Olufsen,
Menu, Muuto and Stelton and furniture projects for Cappellini, B&B Italia, Moroso and Hay among others.
Jakob’s work has been exhibited internationally and has received numerous awards (6 IF awards, 3 Red Dots, Bundespreis, Designer of the Year) as well as becoming a part of the permanent exhibition at MOMA, New York.
Wagner’s simple yet sophisticated work expresses the essence of a product in a minimalist, poetic and playful manner. His design process is detailed and considers all angles of the user experience, which results in timeless, well balanced design.
