Area Bed, Alain Gilles for Magnitude

Putting the spark back into the bedroom...

Bedrooms are not what they once were. No longer just a place to lay your head, or others, modern life has encroached upon the inner sanctum – and now to the list of functions you can add office, bathroom, extra living room, and entertainment centre – we’re sure can come up with a few others on your own.

Anyway, Alain Gilles has had a think about the modern bedroom for Magnitude, and what you see here is the result. Using a versatile collection of extra furniture, in Area Bed he has created an adaptable space that can be configured to meet the changing needs of modern bedroom life. Using an asymmetric design to negate the static nature of traditional bedrooms, he has added functional extras, such as a moveable bench and seating, the drawer without a drawer – perfect for fumbling around in in the dark – and redesigned the bed headboard so it can be curved to create the effect of an extra area behind or in front. And after all that moving furniture around, there’s still somewhere to have a nice lie down…
