GREAT CREATIVE MOMENTS: THE DESCENDING BED

Well, hello there, Bed. These images are from actor Vincent Kartheiser’s home, as profiled in Dwell magazine. The style here is Japanese industrial, and that first shot is of Kartheiser pulling his bed down from the ceiling. That wooden slab in the background there? It’s the headboard. When the bed is up, the slab folds down to become a desk. That’s right: a desk.  

To offset the weight of the bed, there is a 300 lb. weight hidden away somewhere, in a way that is built into the cabin. There are so many different ideas going on here (Red as an accent color anyone?), I don’t even know where to point (Red curtain??). It’s all just too good. It baffles and astounds me. I have no words. Look and enjoy.* 
* Okay, one small final point. This cabin was designed by Funn Roberts. How did this creativity happen? As Kartheiser puts it: “Funn is an artist, he’s going to do his best work if he’s trusted. You trust the artist and you don’t micromanage him.” There, all done.
