Designed over two decades ago, the Morrison Bed designed by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini is an elegant and straightforward design that remains one of our favorites. The rectilinear platform’s minimal reveal creates the illusion that the mattress is an integral part of the form. The attached headboard is a gently curved vertical form that creates a beautiful foil to the horizontal plane supporting the mattress.
The Morrison Bed frame is composed of fir, poplar plywood, and metal with staves in beech plywood and padding in multi-density polyurethane foam. Its slightly canted feet are in natural polished aluminum. The upholstery covers used on the horizontal and vertical portions are fully removable.
