Case Study Alpine Series Bed
Written by Katie on September 23, 2009. Permalink
Efficient minimalism, indeed. Made entirely of multi-ply bent laminated wood, this bed is just about as structurally sound as you can get with this sort of craftsmanship (while keeping the design aesthetic, of course). The smooth curves do echo Alpine sports, but I’d say it’s more reminiscent of a mid century design classic than ski equipment.
The frame is the first to be built almost entirely of bentwood, giving it both fluidity and strength. The bed was inspired by alpine sports like skiing and toboganning, where strength, lightness and a strong graceful structure are crucial. As in the aesthetic of Alpine sports, the Alpine Series bed embodies efficient minimalism and craftsmanship. It’s one and an eighth inch bentwood structure is engineered to last for generations. -modernica.net
