The desk is hidden by the bed’s headboard
Bed 42 Manada Architecture is an unusual mixture between a bed and a desk that has won an “Interior Innovation Award 2012”. The desk is hidden by the bed’s headboard which also functions as a divider for the sleeping and working area. It is a great solution for a bedroom home office; it is both interesting and functional.
“We do believe that what makes a design timeless is its constructive consciousness;” says Manada partner Alejandro Tapia. “The design approach has a lot to do with it becoming timeless,” adds the architect and Manadaº partner, Katarina Alatzia. “Certified solid wood gives us that; it is a noble material that ages properly and is environmentally sustainable. That is part of a timeless design,” finishes Alejandro.
The bed has been manufactured in 4 weeks without any machine fabrication by using 2 inches certified solid walnut wood and local handcraft labor.
