Bed for sleeping
This design is a mix between two cultures, the Scandinavian culture represented by the letter Dagaz in the Rune alphabet and the Italian one represented by the Ponte Vecchio, designed by Andrea Palladio, a bridge situated in Bassano del Grappa.
I designed this bed to change the way to see it, to make it functional, spartan and simply at the same time.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The bed is entirely built with durmast and seems like fluctuate.
The bedspring is inserted in special furrows, the entire weight of bedspring, mattress and two persons is supported by the bed itself.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is a bed and indeed is used to sleep or chill, the key frames is the design that is functional and structural and allow you to store stuff under it or clean easily and at the same time support all the weight of bedspring, mattress and two persons by itself.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
the project started in February 2016 and finished in May 2016.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Most of the processes was made by a CNC machine, all the processes could be replicated industrially.
The assembly process requires 20/25 minutes in two people and the bed is entirely built with durmast. It Seems like fluctuate, the bedspring is inserted in special furrows, the entire weight of bedspring, mattress and two persons is supported by the bed itself. This design was made for a better cleaning up process and for saving space, in fact you can easily store different stuff under the bed, or reach every hard to reach places easily.

I was studying the cultural and artistic influences brought by the clash of the Roman Empire and the Barbarians. A few weeks later I was walking in Bassano del Grappa and when I saw the old bridge I realized that the base was similar to the rune Dagaz.
I knew who was the designer so I decided to investigate about the method of construction, and I also knew that Palladio was inspired by an ancient Roman architect, so in that moment I decided to reinvent a bed who it became a mix between the rune and the bridge, or better to say a tribute to the Romans, to the Italian Renaissance and for the north folks and their traditions.
The hardest part was to bring to reality an idea and make it real by myself.
