Peek is Swedish designer Jonas Wagell's answer to floor lamps that are too big and tend to overpower a space. Let him explain: "I needed a lamp which was small and humble and simply 'popped up' where you needed some light. The Peek lamp has a heavy base with a long slender stem and a shade, which gracefully peeks over the back of a sofa or armchair." Ideal as a reading light or as ambient illumination—and, intuitively, the top end of the light's stem acts as a dimmer.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
“My ambition is to create simple and honest products that have strong character and warmth. Often with humor and color," says Swedish architect and designer Jonas Wagell. Based in Stockholm, he originalIy worked as a graphic designer and project manager before he pivoted to architecture and design. His firm JWDA maintains a multi-disciplinary focus on brand management, architecture and product design.
From his design studio located in an old dairy shop, Jonas has collaborated on projects for Normann Copenhagen, Muuto and Menu, and his range encompasses everything from a teapot to the prefab house concept Mini House. But he always strives for a personal touch. "Maybe my work could be described as expressive minimalism," says the designer. "I believe it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time."
