Designer Caroline Bauer and architect Pier Francesco Galuppini, founders of Studio BAAG, transformed a spinning top in a table lamp, a leapfrog stool in a comfy pouf and a simple shape-game in a modular candle holder. The Swedish-Italian design duo meshes genuine craftsmanship and functionality enhancing the use of natural materials. studiobaag.com
An old-fashioned spinning top and its whirling movement becomes a playful table-lamp that creates a dynamic presence in the room: Pirouette is composed from turned carrara, bardiglio and nero marquinia marble with brass details and opaline plexiglass.
The project by Studio BAAG comes also in wood, the spinning base is composed from turned ash, oak or walnut wood.
Inspired by a gymnastic equipment but upholstered in alcantara, Cavallina is a soft pouf with a rounded shape that invites you to hop on and off. Its graphically pure lines and playful appearance are carefully balanced with a low lacquered wood base, giving the allusion that it is hovering above the ground.
Made from bardiglio marble and wood, the Affinity candle-holder features a unique texture and concept, where two naturally opposing materials are joined together as one. With a modular system and four geometric shapes, it can be assembled and composed in multiple and creative ways.
Founded in 2010 by Swedish designer Caroline Bauer and Italian architect Pier Francesco Galuppini, Studio BAAG is based in Milan.
