The Swedish designer Jonas Wagell initially designed The Peek lamp as a floor lamp to accompany a sofa he did a few years ago. The design is simplistic, humble and somewhat quirky.
He explains, “I find that floor lamps are often big and quite dominant in interiors. I needed a lamp which was small and humble and simply “popped up” where you needed some light. The Peek lamp has a heavy base with a long slender stem and a shade, which gracefully peeks over The back of a sofa or armchair.”
The shape and silhouette of The Peek table lamp is The same as a floor lamp, only The proportions have shrunk. Use The lamp as a reading light, as your new best friend on your desk or as The last thing you see before you close your eyes at night. The base has a concave top creating a bowl for essential stationery, earplugs, jewelry or other small items and The tip of The stem functions as a dimmer.
Jonas Wagell on The design: “Although The form derives from a functional requirement I believe it’s important that The lamp has personality and an expression. I strive to create simplistic objects and products that are intuitive and easy to understand. in essence, The Peek lamps only consist of three parts: base, stem and shade. The form is reduced to The necessities and The expression becomes iconic.”
