Elegant four-poster bed with a fairy-tale air.
The solid wood structure of this bed is shaped like a dream house. The slats are in beech wood size 170x200 cm. The mattress is not included. The designer says: “I was inspired by my house when I was a little kid. I stay in a wooden house like a cabin and me and my siblings would even climb onto the roof top to explore our environment.
By having a bed that look like an archetype house within a room, it blurred our concept of indoor and outdoor and suggest our curiousness and exploration of our environment.”
Nathan Yong graduated from Temasek Polytechnic with a diploma in Industrial Design in 1991. He began his career not as a designer, but as a buyer for different companies in Singapore. Travelling to various countries he learnt various production techniques and crafts.His work is inspired by simple visual memories from everyday life, but pared down with the lightness of restraints. Instead of superfluous details, he captures the poetry of products through rigorous research and engineering, creating fresh styles and functions that fit effortlessly into the user’s life.
