A bed which marries the comfort of an upholstered headboard with the strong visual impact of its simple construction and eclectic detailing. It breathes authenticity and evokes the homely image of bedsheets hung out to dry in the sun; the caress of wind entering from the window in springtime, the pleasure of falling asleep listening to the song of cicadas in the hot summer afternoons.
The bar is held in place by the tension of the fabric wrapped around the frame. The result is a soft, billowy headboard which can be covered in leather or fabric, both removable. The rear legs in natural or black stained oak are mounted to the bedframe with mechanical joints.
A bed that combines comfort with a strong aesthetic statement, featuring advanced and yet minimalist structural solutions. The design of the headboard is inspired by sheets hung up to dry in the wind: the two vertical members terminate in a semi-circular cavity which accepts a horizontal cylindrical rod, on which is “hung” an upholstered quilt that forms the two large cushions.
The side members and footboard are both upholstered and padded like the headboard. The front feet, made of steel and mounted between the footboard and side members, mirror the cylindrical shape of the central rod and are coated matt black. The base is made of steel, with curved beech slats with a transparent varnish.
