Bed One has a quiet, understated form, with a headboard made of five planks of Douglas Fir and a continuous flow of wood grain from top to bottom.
It is finished with a white-pigmented Danish oil and wax, allowing the timber to maintain its natural pale colour and tactility.
By treating the wood in this manner, Aires Mateus aimed to give Bed One the functionality, longevity and sensory appeal to be used and passed on through the decades.
Bed One is the Lisbon-based architect's second product for De La Espada after last year's Table One.
The bed frame is available in two sizes, each of which accommodates a variety of queen and king mattresses.
All the pieces are made in De La Espada's solar-powered factory in Portugal.
