Hans-Agne Jakobsson

Hans-Agne Jakobsson (1919-2009) is known as a true master of the art of lighting and has left behind a strong design legacy. Many of the original lamps are today valuable collector's items, which are of great interest at international auctions. Among other things, the legendary Fringe lamp has largely achieved icon status on a global level.

The great Swedish designer, Hans-Agne Jakobsson(1919-2009) was attracted by light. Starting in the 1950s and for more than 30 years he created original lamps that revolutionised Swedish lighting design. With a background in cabinet making and the world of architecture, shaping light with the use of materials and colours came naturally to him.

Hans-Agne Jakobsson’s signature is a soft, warm, subdued light that is extremely pleasing to the eye. The lamps are created with classic materials such as glass, wooden laminate and brass, but also combined with sophisticated fringes in one of his more playful lamp designs, which today is considered an icon. Experiments, a wealth of detail and a profound understanding of the numerous aspects of light mean that each and every lamp is a shining work of art. Warm Nordic will regularly launch more of Hans-Agne Jakobsson’s extraordinary designs.



Fringe is a timeless design statement, constructed to create warm, cosy lighting by means of the fringes that conceal the light source beautifully. This exclusive table lamp is the epitome of the Warm Nordic lifestyle. Its soft light and graceful appearance will make any home feel cosier. The Fringe table lamp evokes the interiors of the past, but in a simplified design with an eye for contrasts and exclusive materials. Polished brass is combined with tactile fringes, which fall elegantly in several layers like a flowing skirt. It is a stunning, stylish detail that helped make the Fringe lamp a design icon.
