Peek Table Lamp (2015)

For Menu in Denmark

The Peek lamp was initially designed as a floor lamp to accompany a sofa I designed a few years back, says Jonas Wagell. I find it that floor lamps often are 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 base has a concave top creating a bowl for the essential stationary, earplugs, jewellery or other small items and the top of the stem functions as a touch dimmer.

Although the form derives from a functional requirement I believe it’s important that the lamp has a clear and personal 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 a necessity and the expression becomes iconic.

First out in the range was the table lamp in 2015, but in January 18-24 2016 the floor lamp version will eventually be released at the furniture fair IMM Cologne in Germany.
