To create furniture that inspire, and give joy to the person who buys the item is the driving force of Bagge Design. With “less is more” as the lead phrase, Stefan Bagge designs each piece through his non-complicated, minimalistic way of expression where many of the well thought through details may not be apparent at first glance, yet always present as an essential part of each piece.

Stefan Bagge, an artist whose creative foundation is a mix of music and design, two different forms of communication expressing the same vision. An early interest in furniture was sparked from spending time at his aunt’s antique store in Stockholm as a teenager. While traveling to visit antiquemarkets around the country in search for new items for the store, his eye for detail, combined with a curiosity of how things were constructed, brought on an early desire to design and build his own furniture.

To further develop his interest in furniture design, Stefan started to work in what at the time was one of the top furniture design stores in Stockholm. From the experience, his knowledge of how the different pieces were built, what made an item what it was and the importance of function and quality grew to the point where his interest for creating his own collection, with focus on form, function and quality, found its path forward. From there the tours have been many. His continuous involvement with writing and producing music and playing the creative lead in different furniture design projects eventually lead to a design collaboration with VW when Stefan and his brother, music producer Anders Bagge, together put the Bagge family’s DNA on a special edition the VW Beetle in 2013.
A total of thirty of the “Bagge Beetle” were built, all of which were sold within a week.
Our designs are inspired by what moves us. Music. Film. Travel. Life. Experiences that are more than the everyday impressions filling our world. Meeting with people, new places, and the possibility to live a life full of inspiration. Each design has a special purpose in the collection, a part to play. It is necessary to be able to communicate that feeling, which can only be done if the designs are truly soulful.

The shape is always the key focus when starting a new project. To create a harmonious form to set the mode for what we are looking to communicate, while at the same time giving each of our designs maximum functionality. To shape the actual piece from the initial vision, the mental image, to find the balance between form and function, that is the core of Bagge Design.
C a s u a l
Our vision is to design items that have a casual flair about them. Furniture that will be a natural addition to any home, a table that, while strong in its design, will blend in with the existing environment of your home. Style, design without being overpowering. Items easy to add to your home, while being strong enough to play a central role in any setting they are introduced to.

Every piece of furniture that leaves our studio, each design of the collection, will have a purpose of adding elegance to whatever situation the item will be a part of. Elegance, both in regard to its look and feel, is an important part of the core of Bagge Design, as without elegance, there is nothing. Whatever we do, whatever we look to communicate, elegance will always play a central role.
