The Zurich architect Michael Mettler produces and distributes an innovative bed system under the name “maude“.
The success of the bed system came unexpectedly and unplanned:
A friend commissioned him to plan a double bed and he first decided to extend both ends to play down the rather unattractive proportions of conventional mattresses. So the piece of furniture had the harmonious lateral dimensions of 2:3 and 3:4.
Whilst searching for balanced dimensions, further protagonists in modern bedroom furnishings joined the bed and became one in “maude”. This is how the bed frame head and foot ends become a bookshelf, bedside table or storage room for everything thinkable by only moving the end boards. When the end board is vertical back cushions can be inserted in a recess wherever you want, even on the opposite side too for breakfast in bed.
