or Call to Order

The Mex bed designed by Piero Lissoni for Cassina is a ground-level padded bed with clean lines and full of char­ac­ter. The bed frame and head­board are padded and covered in remov­able fabric or non-remov­able leather. The head­board offers loose pillows that are held in place by a roller system, thus provid­ing more comfort­able support to the resting body. 

Mex features a storage base with a pivot style opening: the opening mech­a­nism gives access to the full container area and raises the entire mattress-frame struc­ture to help facil­i­tate making the bed.

Piero Lissoni

Italy (1956)

Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.

In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
