Inspired by one of Kyoto’s most important sanctuaries, Fushimi Bed reveals its meek, evocative character at a glance, exuding harmony in the combination of its parts and stylishness in its details. Fascinated by spiritual Japanese culture, Philippe Tabet has captured its essence and hold on to that concept of balance and lightness that the culture is known for.
Pared back, elegant and clean, the frame’s lines come together in an inviting bed that is simple yet refined. The absence of sharp corners and the beautifully solid ash wood conjure up an idea of relaxation and delicate tactility.
The proportion between the thickness of the frame and length of the elements is fine-tuned and balanced to perfection with the curvature of the corners. The rear part, which supports the upholstered headboard, is reminiscent of a temple frame and runs along an inclined axis, which emphasizes the profile and beauty of the piece, making Fushimi particularly suitable as a standalone bed positioned at will away from the wall.
Fushimi Bed won the Good Design Award 2017 at Milan's Interntional Salone del Mobile. The GOOD DESIGN ® rewards excellence and innovation brought by ideas and proposals coming from more than 46 countries.
