"Buying a bed is a complicated experience, not only because it requires a certain maturity. One of the hardest things to find is a nice bed. Most people I know have at some time in their lives, slept on a mattress on the floor. So I thought it would be nice to design a bed that would encourage people like me to replace their faithful mattress with a "beautiful bed." The semi-solid environment allows sitting on it, it is made of polyurethane foam blocks wrapped in leather held by a strap. It was a very playful conceptual exercise, related to the transformation of a bed into a boxing ring or a large life raft."
