The Kite sofa designed by Jonas Wagell for Wendelbo plays on the contrast between the geometric stiffness of the exterior panels and the generous softness of the large seat and back cushions. The base consists of a wooden frame in FSC certified brown or black stained oak, with sturdy conical shaped legs, while the piping brings a delicate touch of sophistication.
Kite is a sofa that is both rigorous and cozy, which the wide range of upholsteries and the different formats allow for extensive customization.

Jonas Wagell is a Swedish architect and designer born in 1973. The JWDA studio was founded in 2008 and is now located in a converted auto repair shop in central Stockholm, but collaborations span from Scandinavia to China, via Italy and North America.
Wagell's architectural work is perhaps best known for the Mini House prefab house concept (2007-2012), recognized by Wallpaper* Magazine which named him one of the "50 Hottest Young Architects of the world” shortly after graduating in 2008. Today, work is primarily focused on product and furniture design, but occasionally the studio also consults with art direction and design direction.
Jonas Wagell is trained in graphic design, communication, furniture design and architecture at schools such as Konstfack University College of Arts and Crafts and Berghs School of Communication in Stockholm, as well as Parsons School of Design in New York. Wagell has a former career in strategic project management and communications.
Although the studio's main focus today is on design rather than architecture, the approach remains diverse - from furniture and lighting to tableware and consumer accessories.
Jonas Wagell's design has been described as minimal with soft, friendly shapes. He was introduced to design through an interest in graphics, printing and typography and this may have influenced the work of today with a simplistic and clear, yet expressive design language.
