Highlights 2016, bed Ruben

The sensation of an enveloping embrace and a great comfort. This is the evocative image that inspired the designer in conceptualizing a bed characterized by overlapping horizontal bands defining the armrests and headboard, integrating structure and upholstery. The slight headboard inclination proves to be very functional, for example for reading, in fact it indulges the body and provides ample support even without cushions. It is the cover in fabric or leather which, through a series of hidden seams, defines the structure whilst preserving the convenience of a removable cover. Slender aluminum alloy legs (polished, black painted or covered with cowhide) support the generous frame.

States Damian Williamson, “The most evident aspect is the limited utilization of visible stitching, in favour of covering exteriors carefully folded around the upholstery. The generous and slightly ‘puffy’ volumes seem to fluctuate above the aluminum alloy legs, engineered to support the structure. The slender feet have been designed with a minimalist touch so as to draw focus on the soft body above.”
