Julep sofa and seating system designed by Jonas Wagell for Tacchini features a Sofa, Lounge Chair, Chaise Lounge, and Ottoman. A family of upholstered seating characterized by soft and enveloping shapes and by a contemporary, romantic and feminine allure, Julep is inspired by the Avant-Garde furniture of the Fifties with a nod to Jean Royere, from which it recovers its simplicity and majesty. The family’s showpiece is the sofa, with its rounded and generous shape, from which the entire collection has then developed – a lounge chair, a three seater sofa, and a footstool – in a game of proportions and volumes which has led to many expressive variations – like the three seater sofa featuring an oversize seat and the sofa with an integrated chaise longue. Fully upholstered, the seats look warm and voluptuous, yet light, thanks to its recessed base which lifts it from the ground. The Julep sofa is a winner of the 2018 Archiproducts Design Awards.
Design Being Vol. A

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.
