What we do

About Bombol
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES

THE ART OF STAYING SPARKY
As trained engineers we’re making it our mission to reinvent all the unhelpful plastic that weighs young families down. Freeing up grown-ups to be the sparky sources of fun all kids deserve.
We decided to focus on a range of innovative, collapsible, certified, light furniture, effectively empowering modern nomadic parents and hospitality businesses in one go. Pop-Up is the first of its kind. To date, the new product has already won several important international design awards including iF Design award, Red Dot Design Award, and Good Design Award, to name a few.

How we got here
INVENTORS FIRST. PARENTS SECOND.
Bombol was started by Paulina and Frédéric in Italy in 2008. When they moved to Hong Kong, Francesco joined the team. We’re all parents, but before we were parents, we were engineers, industrial designers, and inventors.

PAULINA CHU – MANAGING DIRECTOR
Paulina has a Masters in Fashion Design from the Domus Academy Milan and an MBA from SDA Bocconi Milan, making her a force to be reckoned with in the fashion business world. Before Bombol, Paulina worked in retail merchandising for Gucci, Prada and Bottega Veneta. She understands luxury goods inside-out and knows exactly how to create products that are simple, functional, and beautiful.

FRÉDÉRIC GOORIS – CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Frédéric is so obsessed with industrial design he runs a separate design studio alongside Bombol, simply to keep new ideas flowing across our desk. He has a Masters in Design from Domus Academy Milan (where he met Paulina), and has over 17 years’ experience creating products for top designers like Philippe Starck, and global brands such as Alessi, China Southern Airlines, Seiko and Levi’s.

FRANCESCO POZZATO – BUSINESS & PRODUCT DIRECTOR
Francesco has a Masters in Ergonomics of Communication and Product Design. We weren’t completely sure what that meant either. But what we do know is, with over a decade of experience working for the likes of Tiffany & Co, Veneta Cucine and Philippe Starck, he is truly a master of industrial design. He loves to talk to people and ensures that feedback is injected directly into the design process.

Why we do

  • We promised ourselves we'd never be a boring parent. We'd Stay Sparky!
  • Bombol aims to create innovative children's furniture that makes parents' life easier and much lighter, especially when they are on-the-go with their little ones.

THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING A PARENT? BEING A SOURCE OF EXCITEMENT AND INSPIRATION.

HELPING PARENTS STAY SPARKY

Of all the roles we play as parents, being a source of excitement and inspiration has got to be the most fulfilling. After all, when we were kids, we all promised ourselves we’d never turn into boring parents. So here we are. Ready to help you be the sparky source of fun your kids deserve by reinventing the ugly plastic furniture that weighs young families down one product at a time.

How we do

  • We challenge ourselves constantly to achieve the impossible!
  • Bombol specializes in creating products that can out last our competitors.
