comments: where to start with this one? this bed was originally designed for a client the firm was designing a home for. they needed a guest bed but couldn't find one to meet their needs so the architect started playing around with molded plywood. after the home was featured in magazines, the requests started coming in for the bed. this is the ultimate function, strength and beauty union in my mind. the curved slats of the bed are strong but lightweight. if you have two guests, the bed is easily pulled apart to accommodate them both. if you have one guest, they can partially pull apart the frames so that the second frame acts as a night stand. genius. i love this too much!
