Noah Bed

c. 2001

by Philippe Allaeys
for e15

Noah bed designed by Philippe Allaeys for e15 – avail­able in Amer­i­can queen and king sizes – instantly trans­forms any space. The frame is like a giant, deep-welled recti­lin­ear tray” that holds a mattress. With a solid wood compo­si­tion and recti­lin­ear form, its asso­ci­ated hard­ness” becomes a sophis­ti­cated and unex­pected foil to the expected soft­ness” mattress. In addi­tion, two under­side runners elevate the frame 2.4″ off the floor, creat­ing the engag­ing illu­sion that Noah is float­ing” above the floor.
