The young Swiss architect Michael Mettler came to his creation unexpectedly. A friend instructed him with the design of a double bed and his first step was extending the ends to cover the unappealing proportion of common mattresses.
Shelf for books or back cushions
Searching balanced measures, protagonists of modern bedrooms came together with the bed and became one in “maude”. The head- and foot-ends change from movable shelf boards to book shelves, night stands or storing places for all kinds of little things, which we like to have near our bed. If the shelf board is upright, back cushions can be placed in a dent - for a breakfast in bed also at the opposed side.
The prime principle in the construction of “maude” was simpleness and calmness. The material being used is black / brown coated plywood. The 2 cm thick wood plate with the scuff proofed surface enables the contrast between angle and surface.
The material is worked up exactly in a Swiss joinery. The frame is glued and slotted. Due to binding screws and retainers of the tablar, the assembly of “maude” at home is easy and quick. Just a hammer and a screwdriver are required.
The bed by Maude is available in five different sizes.
Furthermore it is important to note the height of the bed's content: Mattress and slatted frame shouldn't be higher than 22 cm together.
