Bed 42

Bed 42

Mexico City, 2011

By mixing a bed and a desk in one product, this project explores the flexibility of use of everyday objects while prioritising the aspiration to create quality products that are both sustainable in an economical, social and environmental way and timeless in their design. 

The design of the 42 Bed reflects from one side the precision that characterises German design, and on the other side the handcrafting skills of Mexican artisans. The bed has been manufactured in 4 weeks without any machine fabrication by using 2 inches certified solid walnut wood and local handicraft work
