CHOICE BEDS
















Low-Wave by Hannes Wettstein - Severe volumes for amazing functionality. Hannes Wettstein has designed the Wave series that mixes classical elegance with ergonomic comfort. The inside of the headboard houses a moving mechanism with two positions to ensure adequate support for comfortable reading. The whole range of Wave beds is available with covers in fabric, leather or micro-fibre with a matelassé design, all completely removable.

Extrabed by Fabien Baron - Detachable bed with fixed staves, satined stainless steel structure and wooden honeycomb base and headboard. Available in Canaletto walnut or matt lacquered in light grey, quartz grey or red color. White nylon feet.

Siena by Naoto Fukasawa - An essential look and a base and headboard in a drastically reduced size are the distinguishing features of a project by Naoto Fukasawa which conveys a great sense of lightness, thanks to the base projecting from the whole perimeter of the bed. The top of the back panel inserted into the base features a short turned-up section where you can rest your arm comfortably when you are seated. Two tubular metal supports hold up the frame; a version is available with casters at the rear that make it easy to move. The base frame contains a metal mesh with pre-curved beech wood slats.

Legnoletto by Alfredo Haberli - The appearance of LegnoLetto is anything but technical. There is no wooden frame, and the legs are not attached to the corners, as is normally the case. These characteristics, as well as the unusually high legs, are responsible for the ease and striking appearance of the bed. For different widths, five different choices of head and foot design and seven colors (including natural wood) offer a huge range of compositional options. This variety opens up endless images of a new kind of wooden bed.

Charles by Antonio Citterio - The Charles bed is characterized by the "inverted L"-shaped feet in polished aluminium, the signature trait of the Charles line, and by its classic simplicity. The Charles bed is available in a range of fully removable fabric covers and non-removable leathers.
