Would you like a ‘throne’ of your own, or perhaps a fluffy picnic [1] space? Lichtbed [2] is an experimental project by architecture practice 51n4e [3] and textile designers Chevalier-Masson [4] and Julie Vandenbroucke. The oversized daybed that explores social relations and the boundaries between openness and privacy allowing sitters to chose the size of their own personal [5] space.

This elevated field of softness is made out of wool [7] / polyester covering with a foam padding supported by a steel structure. We spotted this gigantic dreamy daybed at the + Perspectives – Belgium is Design [2] exhibition during the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair [8].
