Would you like a ‘throne’ of your own, or perhaps a fluffy picnic space? Lichtbed is an experimental project by architecture practice 51n4e and textile designers Chevalier-Masson 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 space.

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