Buying a bed is a complicated experience, not only because it requires a certain maturity. One of the hardest things to find is a nice bed. Marc Newson was so reluctant to make the purchase, in 1997, he was still sleeping on a mattress on the floor.
“Most people I know have at some point in their lives, slept on a mattress on the floor. So I thought it would be nice to design a bed that would envy people like me to replace their faithful mattress with a “beautiful bed.” The semi-solid environment can sit on it, it consists of blocks of polyurethane foam wrapped in leather held by a strap.
All hail the Bumper Bed by Marc Newson, where bumper car meets bed meets art meets bedroom furniture.
