The Zurich architect Michael Mettler produces and distributes an innovative beds system under the name „maude“.
The success of the bed system was unexpected: a friend of his ordered a double bed and he firstly decided to enlarge both ends, so as to hide the boring sizes of common mattresses.
The piece of furniture thereby received lateral dimensions of 2:3 and 3:4. Searching for balanced dimensions, further protagonists of the modern bedroom experience were developed, becoming all of them “maude”.
This is how a conventional bed-frame becomes a bookshelf, night table or storage room for everything thinkable by only moving the end boards. If the board stands vertically, it is also possible to insert a back cushion – this ensures comfortable breakfast-sessions in the bed, also on the opposite side.
