Julep Armchair, designed by Jonas Wagell for Tacchini, is influenced by the simple grandeur of the 1950s Avant-Garde movement. Soft, enveloping shapes characterize the Julep series of upholstered pieces, including this armchair, sofa, chaise-lounge with an ottoman, and island. The recessed base invisibly lifts the seats, offering a romantic allure and sense of lightness.

Jonas Wagell is an architect and designer from Stockholm. Born in 1973, he trained as graphic artist and then specialised as an interior designer in Stockholm and New York, where he attended the Parsons School of Design. In 2008 he founded the JWDA firm which handles architecture, product design and brand management projects. Wagell is fond of creating functional items with features of simplicity and intelligence, objects which can be used and understood easily by those who choose them. The best known design from the JWDA studio is the prefabricated Mini House. For this design, in 2008, Wagell was named by Wallpaper as one of the fifty young architects worth watching. Today JWDA focuses above all on product design for Scandinavian and international brands.
