Jakob Wagner was first trained as an engineer, and then
studied industrial design at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and in several places in Europe. In 1992 he established his own design studio.
Balance is a key element in Jakob Wagner's designs. By creating close balances between contrasts, our senses are challenged. According to Wagner's philosophy, design it the
play between balances which will, when perceived - touch us emotionally.
in 2003, Jakob Wagner was awarded The Danish Arts Foundation Three-Year honorable Bursary.
