Warmth, softness and a sense of protection are the feelings which inspired the Blanket bed designed by Alessandro Busana for Bonaldo.
The roles have been inverted and the blanket has been transformed from a mere accessory to the main star. Indeed, a large, soft quilt makes up the base of this bed, supporting the mattress and, from the foot of the bed, it has been folded over thus forming the headrest.
“The bed is an object we interact with for a long period and with the most of our body”, explains designer Alessandro Busana. “Making it comfortable not only materially but also in terms of perception seemed to me an essential starting point. Hence the choice of a blanket, considering the symbol it represents in the collective imagination”.
The almost archetypal nature of this concept makes Blanket an iconographic bed immediately recognizable, one that is capable of playing the starring role and arousing emotions through a simple yet extraordinary rolled up blanket.
