Papilio

Beds

Description

The single-material Papilio bed, available in five sizes, stands out for its continuous line and attractive proportions. Upholstered either in fabric or in leather, Papilio features the same clean lines as the armchairs of the same name, though with slightly less conical sides. The mattress is placed almost flush with the perimeter to enhance the overall sense of rigour.

Back
Concept

Simplicity, immediacy and comfort were the concepts guiding the functional development of the entire Papilio series: the Grande Papilio and Piccola Papilio armchairs, the chairs Papilio and Mini Papilio, the Love Papilio sofa and the Papilio bed.

“I want to fall asleep immediately. This is what a bed should make you think about when you look at it. Feeling great.” said the Japanese designer Fukasawa.

The quest for comfort moves to the bedroom and the double bed is the central element. Next to it, a night table holds an open book... “that I will never finish!”
