Shiko Wien bed by E-ggs for Miniforms

Dezeen Showroom: Italian design studio E-ggs has created the Shiko Wien bed for Miniforms, combining a solid wood structure with a Vienna Straw headboard.

Shiko Wien is the third Shiko bed iteration following the Shiko Wonder and Shiko Magnum. It features a slightly curved headboard frame covered with Vienna Straw – the classic weaving style so-called for its association with Viennese coffee houses.

"The solid wood headboard frame, joined to the delicate strength of Vienna Straw, creates an intimate tale of shadows," said E-ggs.

"Shiko Wien takes on a new identity, more natural and keen on making contemporary a language of other times."

The bed structure is made of solid ash wood and is available in a natural or black finish

The Shiko Wien bed is available in either a natural or black ash wood, with the woven headboard coloured to match.

The Shiko beds take their name from a ritual stomping exercise performed by sumo wrestlers to ward off evil spirits, and Miniforms aims to imbue them with a similar sense of solidity and safety.
