A bed in a box

That exactly has designed one of the contemporary designers that succeeds to be at the top of all discussions:  Nika Zupanc. Her  Forever Bed was part of an exhibitionat at Rossana Orlandi’s curated exhibition in Museo Bagatti Valsecchi during Milan Design Week 2014 this month.

 "While closed, the bed has a key that resembles and underlines the idea of a ‘credenza’ – a small, hidden sacred place where we hide the things we love and fear at the same time. The Forever Bed opens up with a big key that also serves as a supporting leg when the bed is open. The mattress and the cushions are made using the Octaspring technology by Dormeo", explains the designer.

Milan 2014 - trends that continue from last year

I was impressed to find that many of the populr trends in interior design continue successfully their life at this year's Milan Design Week. Let's mention just two of them for today:
Copper:

Magis - Tibu


In fact the two trends are interconnected because copper reflects exactly this love for soft colours.

Marble in the bathroom

It creates an instant feeling of luxury:

No matter if marble is used on different surface or for production of vanities, or as a decorative motive - it always creates a special atmosphere.

This one is my favourite - it uses marble as an elegant functional piece within an elegant bathroom where main feature is something else - the veiw!
