A transcend of the standard definition of the bedroom as a sleeping platform, incorporating several functions performed in the room as a whole.
The design of this bed collection is inspired by the dual but related connotations of the French word ‘chambre’ – meaning both ‘bedroom’ specifically, and ‘room’ in general. Neri&Hu explored this notion by creating a piece that transcends the standard definition of a bed as a sleeping platform to incorporate several functions usually performed by the room as a whole. Clad in fabric panels, the headboard stretches higher than most conventional beds, and extends around the corners to create the feeling of an enclosed space. The continuous guide rail allows the occupant to hang or attach various items – including the suspended tables – on each side of the bed.
