Milan 2013: a curtain of raffia creates a hairy veil around one of five beds designed by Brazilian duo Fernando and Humberto Campana for Italian furniture brand Edra.
Using the materials of the 2010 Cabana cabinet, the Cabana bed (top) is surrounded by long strands of raffia that can be tied back using magnetic leather belts, while the Grinza bed (above) is covered in wrinkled leather, just like the 2011 Grinza chair.
The fake fur-covered Cipria sofa from 2009 is reimagined for the Cipria bed (above), which comes with a fluffy pink headboard.
The Corallo bed (above) has a jumbled frame of golden wire, similar to the 2004 Corallo chair.
The fifth bed in the collection is Favela (above and below), which is made from wooden boards that have been roughly glued and nailed together. The design first appeared in the Favela chairs, which were used within the Campana's first hotel interior.
The Campana beds were shown last week in Milan at the Edra showroom.
Here's some more information from Edra:
In the Edra showroom, visitors will be also treated to a preview of the collection "Campana beds" - five beds created by Fernando and Humberto Campana, which continue that journey between roots and identity started with couches and armchairs already in the collection. These beds are highly unique because of their use of unusual materials inspired by nature and creativity, refined by great manual skills and advanced technologies.
Edra opens its new division, Edra beds, with the Campana Brothers. The five beds that make up the collection are: "Corallo bed" with headboard and footboard made by a weave of inox wire that has been hand-curved and finished with a special golden finish, that contains pure gold; "Favela bed" which is all made of wooden small boards, glued and nailed together by hand one over the other, according to an intentionally casual scheme; "Cabana bed", screened by raffia veils treated with a special fire-proofing process and featuring leather belts with magnetic clips to control the drapery; "Cipria bed" stuffed with expanded polyurethane and synthetic wadding, with headboard made of four pillows attached to a metallic structure and covered in eco-fur; "Grinza bed" featuring a metallic structure covered by abundant hanging drapery, available in leather.
All the beds in the "Campana beds" collection come with sheets and comforters made of pure natural linen.
