Designer Jonas Wagell expands his collaboration with Normann Copenhagen with yet another expressive, minimalist design. Happy Whale is a simple and humorous decorative figure that adds personality and character to the modern interior.
With soft proportions and few, yet well-considered, details, Jonas Wagell has created an aesthetic design product with obvious charm. Happy Whale’s subtle expression is the product of many small adjustments and gradual refinement. For Jonas Wagell, it is this process in particular that is so inspiring about design: “I find it fascinating that a simple block of wood can be transformed into an object that evokes emotions and gives pleasure”.
Pleasure and smiles are exactly what one gets from Happy Whale. The straightforward, playful design spreads life and warmth throughout the home. The Happy Whale can be put on the bedside table, on a shelf or dresser in the hallway, or to create a comfortable ambience in the living room in conjunction with vases and other decorative objects. Wherever one chooses to put Happy Whale, its cheerful look will not go unnoticed.
Happy Whale is made from solid oak, and available in classic black and white as well as an attractive deep blue.
