DAYBED by Konstantin Grcic

DAYBED is a minimal limited-edition piece designed by Konstantin Grcic for Giustini/Stagetti. Similar to a Renaissance studiolo, the DAYBED was created as a self-contained space for reading, learning, and contemplation. A wooden box with a rectangular platform and two adjacent sides is used to contain the mattress. A little window with a ledge that extends outward is located in the wall at the top of the mattress. The longitudinal wall has a wooden shelf and drawer inside. The latter widens into a compact working space that cantilevers outward from the box. You would use it by raising a chair. The saw-cut oak veneer that is put in a specific pattern forms the fundamental structure of the DAYBED. Warmth and serenity are provided to the piece by the wool bouclé fabric that covers the mattress.
