The Beam Bed was designed by Ewan Robertson for Lagostudio. An original system of boards forms the base for the mattress, opening up in a sunburst arrangement from a central fulcrum. The way of supporting the mattress is therefore innovative and unorthodox, but decidedly functional and practical. Inspired by a figure of elementary simplicity and beauty, the sun, it generates brilliant illuminating effect. The source of light at the base irradiates beams of light like a sunburst through the sun-rays-like opening resulting in a seductive light-shadow. The final effect looks good, and someway it makes me things at an alien spacecraft …but at least the lack of odd shadows would reassure you that there were no monsters under the bed! – Via
