One design and functional feature of BAGGEBO is the bottom shelf which is elevated from the floor. What it means is, all products share the same bottom line. This space gives the user the possibility to store even more. And it also makes it easy to clean and provides the product with a light look.
To minimize costs, IKEA has taken a few more steps. For example, there are stretched metal sides to minimize glass usage. Glass is heavy and can be bulky in transport, which adds to the cost.
“We share the same parts and fittings in several of the products to be able to lower the price for the customer. When designing a family, this is a great opportunity and a great benefit from a production point of view which normally only happens when we design big families like the kitchen system METOD or bedroom series MALM,” says Johanna.
Also, one can fill the shelf with different storage boxes to adapt the space.
The BAGGEBO range is available in Europe and the Asia Pacific from this month. It will be available in the North American markets from October this year.
