Storage units with a big heart

What started as an extensive collaboration with IKEA markets three years ago has now taken a beautiful shape in the form of the BAGGEBO. The storage range for the living room is now available in selected markets. We sat down with Bonnie Yu and Johanna Jelinek to know more about the range and how they brought together innovative designs and light materials to create a truly affordable family of living room storage products that suits all pockets, spaces and layout ideas.

We talked to Caroline and Nishant about material innovation and a more sustainable artificial sheepskin.
