Wave is a small object in the shape of a wave – hence its name – both practical and decorative, which will find its place in many places: on a desk as a storage aid, in an entrance as a sundries tray, and why not in a kitchen. Indeed, a tablet can be installed in the central spot, allowing you for example to follow a cooking recipe. The back pocket is quite large and therefore ideal for storing letters, while the front tray is perfect for small items and pencils. Wave is made from a undulated sheet of steel. It has been covered with a beautiful layer of black leather to ensure a good longevity and give a refined look.

Hiromichi Konno is a Japanese designer with an international outlook. He has studied in both Japan and Sweden and also lived in London for many years. His style is very unique and there is a special energy and something almost teasing about his designs. He now works for large companies and manufacturers around the world, and he is particularly in demand in Scandinavia.
Mia Lagerman has lived in Copenhagen since 1993, educated in both Stockholm and Copenhagen. She is an inveterate Scandinavian who believes in quality, functionality and aesthetics. Mia Lagerman has worked as a furniture designer in the past 25 years. Through her work with several international brands during the years she has managed to become a key player on the design scene.
As a designer, Mia Lagerman views her constant development - from the creation of the idea, through to the production and the final result - as a journey towards achieving the best results, and where dialogue with collaborators and the development of new methods are a vital part of the process, always with the end-user in mind.
Mia's designs are based on a Scandinavian aesthetic simplicity, as well as an understanding of materials and production. This applies to both mass production and smaller editions.
Mia Lagerman’s work in the field between art and design is also reflected in her portfolio of new designs, where a wonderful mix of furniture for mass production, as well as experimental furniture in smaller editions can be seen. “The innovative products are a reflection of my need to try out different kinds of materials and craftsmanship.
It’s OK for design to be tongue in cheek, but it must still have the ability to be taken seriously. It’s about creating a surprise, something unexpected. It’s about immersing yourself, seeking perfection with an open mind, quality and not least, stirring people’s emotions.”
Good design is therefore many things for Mia Lagerman: “That’s when everything comes together as one. It’s best when it’s explained with few words, when you can understand it without a lot of long explanations, images and texts."
"Aesthetics are very personal and evolve on a constant basis. Your eye develops its view on things throughout your whole life. I find it boring when everything starts to look the same and becomes too well organised and predictable. It needs to be a little disorganised, a little irregular, dirty or crooked for the eye to be interested".
