Jonas Lindvall was educated as an interior architecture in Gothenburg, Sweden and studied furniture design both at the Royal College of Art in London and Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen. Upon completing his studies he returned to his hometown, Malmö, were he opened his own office.

Over the years, Jonas has created villas, hotels, restaurants and more recently, the interior of Stockholm's Ersta Kyrka. Notable projects include Villa M2 in southern Sweden and the interior of Gastrologik, a one Michelin star restaurant in Stockholm.

As a designer, Lindvall's portfolio is equally diverse, ranging from furniture and lighting, to kitchens and bathrooms. He was awarded the Excellent Swedish Design award no less than four times in a row and won Elle Decoration Sweden's Kitchen of the Year award in 2011 for K2, produced by Ballingslöv. Products designed by Jonas Lindvall can also be found in permanent museum collections around the world, including the V&A Museum in London and Stockholm's Nationalmuseum.

An exponent of traditional craftsmanship, Jonas Lindvall creates new classics that reflect a spirit of modernity, whilst maintaining a profound respect for skills and techniques of the past. From the traditional turned chairs of the 18th century, which gave rise to Stolab’s Miss Holly (2011), to the ecclesiastical references behind his Sacred Boxes series (2004-2008), all provide inspiration for contemporary ideas and solutions. This is a theme that is inherent throughout his work, and comes from a tireless curiosity and a passion for history.
