Playful Attitude


Studio BAAG took inspiration by children’s toys and created furniture and home accessories defined by a playful imprint and a story-telling humour.

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.

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, with a really playful attitude.


Studio BAAG was founded in 2010 by Swedish designer Caroline Bauer and Italian architect Pier Francesco Galuppini, and it is based in Milan. They work with various international projects ranging from architecture to design.
