The Roma Sofa designed by Jonas Wagell for Tacchini features a soft curving form with a large cozy seat that elegantly floats on the slenderest of legs. Upholstered in either fabric or leather from the collection with legs finished in satin chrome, matte champagne gold or black or white powder coat. The Roma Sofa is the result of a playful yet simplistic design with a nod to 1950’s Italy and a hint of Wagell’s Scandinavian roots. Also available as part of our collection is the Roma Lounge Chair.
Design Being Vol. A
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.
