Frame is the overall concept for a bedroom, for a given floor plan of 12’ by 16’ and a 9’ high ceiling. This furniture design exercise focuses on the design of a king size bed while also considering the contextual importance of the surrounding room.
The idea behind the concept is to design every piece of furniture out of frames that can be filled with soft materials. A black frame creates an initial outline and helps communicate the sense of the room, and then can be filled with colorful variation of cushions and soft surfaces. After exploring the formal language and the development of a conform design, the outcome was the construction of a hanging bed. The bed is able to transform vertically and provides space for a desk or a workout space. This solution is very interesting in terms of small living spaces and restricted use of rooms.
