10. FBed (Facebook Bed) Concept – Futuristic Bed for Social Media Addicts
Croatian designer Tomislav Zvonarić of DevianTom has created the FBed concept. Shaped like the logo of the most popular social network Facebook, the bed allows you to be connected with your friends. According to the designer, “FBed is a conceptual multi-practical bed design that would allow you always to be up to date and close to your online friends even when you sleep.
We’ll just say it now – this is a terrible idea for 2020, when we need to stay offline more than ever. But when this came out in 2010, it was a much different world, and the social media landscape was much more personal and filled with friends. It’s cute to look back on but we’re happy this never really took off.
The idea is that you may hoop in front of your screen directly from your bed when you wake up, and inverse when you get tired and want to go sleep…”
We could see this working in a tiny loft apartment, but never with the actual Facebook logo and design. Next.

11. Kulle Daybed by Stefanie Schissler
Young German designer Stefanie Schissler has created the Kulle daybed. From the designer, “Kulle was created to evoke the instinctive feelings of safety and relaxation. It is addressing our sense of touch combined with curiosity and the desire to explore things.
In order to prevent the increasing consumption we as designers should think of new ways to enhance the lifespans of the products in our everyday life. Persistence means sustainability. But how does one achieve a long-life cycle when it comes to the products we’re surrounded by. I believe, that one way could be to emotionally connect.
Referring to this, Kulle is aiming for an emotional connection with raising feelings in its owner. The remarkable design of the daybed should tempt people to explore it, which is the first step to a personal relationship. By touching and trying it, one should finally be positively affected and fascinated by the new kind of upholstery it has.
The overall goal of the project was, to create a relaxation place, that invites you with its appearance; you should almost feel the comfort just by looking at it.”
12. Modern Cubed Bed by Francesca Paduano for Bolzan Letti

This subtle play of volumes is enhanced when using units in different colours. Each unit is made of expanded polyurethane and the cover is available in leather or alcantara.”

13. Weird Bed with Chairs as Legs: 56 Day Bed by Ron Gilad
Designer Ron Gilad has created the 56 Day bed in collaboration with Adele-C. It is a minimalist bed with four small Thonet Chairs as legs. According to the designer, ‘While creating pieces for Adele-C I allowed myself the freedom to play with extreme irony and scale while maintaining the balance between the useful and the abstract; going all the way to the edge of the cliff but not jumping off.
The “56” collection started with two functional objects; one for resting and the other for storage. My task was how to elevate these functions, both literally and conceptually. The past came to my rescue. Appropriating Thonet chair no.14, shrinking it and reproducing it in steel, allowed the stability for it to function as a support to the other components rather than our butts.”

16. Bed, Bathroom, Dressing Room, and Workspace Combo Unit: Compact Space Red Nest by Paul Coudamy
Wow, this is essentially everything you need to live in except a kitchen. I wouldn’t even call this a bed, it’s a full modern “space nest” as the title describes. Perfect for shared rooms with many people? See for yourself.
Paris-based designer Paul Coudamy has designed a compact space Red Nest, which includes a bedroom, a bathroom, a dressing area and a working space in just 23 square meters. Here is some information by the designer, “The design is based on a work on the porosity of spaces. The bookshelf is a mobile block that enables to control the opening of the bed. Its U-shaped covers the bed and shapes the room by closing the dressing, the bed or the working space. This mobile system provides a closed sheltered bed as wished by the client without completely shutting the space.
Red carmine gloss paint reinforces the graphical dimension of the space and its delimitation by contrasting with the matt white walls. The disappearance of the spatial limits is reinforced by the use of two-way mirrors that control the hidden and visible spaces according to the light. The bathroom is covered with resonated concrete and the restroom is hidden behind the doors of a fake vintage wardrobe. You can set the degree of intimacy between the bathtub and the rest of the room thanks to the two-way mirror above the basin.” Photos: Benjamin Boccas.
