It's a bed! It's a house! It's a house bed!
Singapore-based designer Nathan Yong created a four poster bed unlike anything we've ever seen before. The Casetta in Canada bed is a four poster bed shaped like a house. The bed is made from white-painted ash wood and can be accented with drapes.
Yong was inspired by the house he lived in when he was a kid. "I stay[ed] 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 [sic] and exploration of our environment."
Yong described his design process:
"I like my design to evoke a sense of wonder and bring a smile to those who observe and use them, conveying the idea that lies behind their creation ... Most of my projects start with an operation of stripping, due to the need to make the function, the material, the method and the result as comprehensible as possible, retaining its authenticity of its objective." Yong further explained that his works are like "silent engineering," where "the form [is allowed] to express itself, based on technical considerations, not just as a graphic scheme."
The house-shaped Casetta in Canada bed is available from Mogg, an Italian furniture company started by architect Nicola Galbiati. The company specializes in modern furnitures with clean lines and minimalist styles.
