We’re here to inject some X into BAU!
We founded BAUX on the belief that building materials should be sustainable, surprisingly functional and remarkably beautiful. BAUX designs, produces and markets functional construction materials that meet the contemporary expectations of architects, engineers and builders – without compromising tomorrow’s safety and environmental standards.
For us, the BAUX brand is our perception of what we do, what we stand for, and what makes us relevant. Our mission is to change the world for the better. A conversation between two students excels into brilliance, a business meeting gone right leads to new potential or leaders of nations coming to an agreement that matters to the world – all thanks to restful acoustics in residential buildings, industrial premises and public spaces.
We are BAUX.
In 2013, Johan Ronnestam, Fredrik Franzon and the founding members of Form Us With Love; Jonas Petterson, John Löfgren and Petrus Palmér set out to innovate the world of acoustic materials. Together, they had a mission to create a global interior and architect material brand created better working conditions for the people worldwide.

TRÄULLIT. PART OF OUR HISTORY
Our first product BAUX TILES was created together with Träullit, a traditional family business, founded in 1946 by Lennart Rääf. Today it is headed by his son Bengt Rääf. The company has since made boards and panels of cement bound wood wool. Wood wool of spruce, a fascinating material, sprung from our nature, joined together with pure cement, provides unique features to any building. Features that provide sound absorbtion, excellent thermal insulation capacity, high thermal storage capacity, proven highly resistant to fire, mold and rot, mechanically strong and good plaster base.
The headquarters and factory are located in Österbymo in southern Östergötland
“BAUX PROVIDED A UNIQUE INSIGHT INTO THE TRADITIONAL WORLD OF CONSTRUCTION. SUDDENLY OUR HERITAGE BECAME OUR FUTURE”
