About Hans-Agne Jakobsson

portrait of Hans-Agne Jakobsson

The great Swedish designer, Hans-Agne Jakobsson was attracted by light. Starting in the 1950s and for more than 30 years he created original lamps that revolutionised Swedish lighting design. With a background in cabinet making and the world of architecture, shaping light with the use of materials and colours came naturally to him. Hans-Agne Jakobsson’s signature is a soft, warm, subdued light that is extremely pleasing to the eye. The lamps are created with classic materials such as glass, wooden laminate and brass, but also combined with sophisticated fringes in one of his more playful lamp designs, which today is considered an icon. Experiments, a wealth of detail and a profound understanding of the numerous aspects of light mean that each and every lamp is a shining work of art. Warm Nordic will regularly launch more of Hans-Agne Jakobsson’s extraordinary designs.
