More than 30 years of design history, where the new generation takes his own path.
Educated as a jeweler, and later employed by Georg Jensen, where my father worked for 15 years.
Since the late ’80s, my dad has been delivering designs to both MoMa’s store and restaurants.
In 1993, a dynamic and successful design collaboration begins with Rosendahl, which starts with the iconic Grand Cru Series, which in the 90s and early 00s dominates the market and which today can be found in most Danish homes.
In 2003, my father co-founded the company - eb erik bagger A / S. The ambition is big.
In 2004, the Royal Theater, Erik Bagger's wine glass series and various services for the restaurant.
In 2013, my dad designed a sign for the Little Mermaid's 100th birthday. It tells the story of The Little Mermaid, Denmark's biggest tourist attraction.
In 1987, my father becomes self-employed.
Already from the age of 2, my father introduced me to design, where I often sit on his lap and draw along side him.
In 1998, my father was contacted by museum director Knud W. Jensen. The task is to design lamps that will be made in connection with the Art Museum Louisiana's 40th anniversary. In collaboration with DONG, Erik is developing a cylindrical gas lamp that will be the new lighting in the museum park. There will be a total of 18 lamps to adorn the museum park.
In 2003, my father designed the wine glass series and various services for the restaurant in the Copenhagen Opera, where the inspiration from the waves in the canal is clearly expressed in the design.
In 2005, a number of my father's designs, such as wine glasses and tableware, was chosen for the danish actor house called "skuespillerhuset" i danish.
In 2014, I choose to go my own way after i had traveled around the world. On the journey, I got the idea to create the concept behind Frederik Bagger today.
When I started Frederik Bagger, I wanted to make a name for myself in the design industry. There was a need for a fresh breath of inspiration, something that challenged and not least was different, that at the same time dared to challenge the perfection that prevailed, based on these core values that Frederik Bagger universe has been created.
In 2014, I showcased 2 of my first designs online. 2 weeks later I had received over 300 pre-orders. This was the beginning of Frederik Bagger. Relatively soon after, I attended a trade show and from there it really started to pick up speed. In February 2015, the first products Crispy Highball and Crispy Lowball were launched in stores. Today, they are still some of our best-selling products. They have a special place in my heart as they were the start of the entire Crispy series.
The idea behind my products has always been that they should be able to be used in everyday life and not just for special and solemn occasions, so therefore we have spent countless hours making the products as durable as possible. As a result, the glasses can be put in the dishwasher, and at the same time you do not have to worry about glass plague, as we provide a 10-year glass clarity guarantee. In addition to this, our glass can withstand temperatures from -25 degrees and all the way up to + 180 degrees. This means that you can drink hot as well as cold liquids from your Frederik Bagger glasses.
At Frederik Bagger, we only produce environmentally friendly crystal glasses.
That is why we work with the glass mass Crystaline. Crystaline is not just a glass mass without harmful additives that retains the iconic clarity, but also has a host of other benefits.
We always have a strong focus on optimizing all parts of the company for a more sustainable future, therefore we also have a strong focus on minimizing our CO2 footprint both in connection with packaging, transport and material consumption.
