IKO

Rodolfo Dordoni / Flou
£5340

Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni has envisioned this minimalist model using strong powerful materials. Created for bed wellness specialists Flou, the milky coffee hued leather headboard neatly folds and merges with the luxurious brass ends of the liner structure. Titled 'IKO,' the tubular frame combines traditional nickel with stainless steel to produce a relaxed yet contemporary style.

Calm bed

Sebastian Herkner / Schramm
From €4300

Enclosed in its very own upholstered headboard, this crafted 'boxspring' bed offers a private sleeping experience.

Icaro

Roberto Lazzeroni / Flexform
Price on request

Italian designer Roberto Lazzeroni’s latest contribution to Flexform’s ever-expanding portfolio is the Icaro series, featuring a table, ottoman, bench, mirror and bed. In this small but exquisitely formed collection, one must admit that the bed is king, exemplifying the elegant simplicity Lazzeroni does well. Without reinventing the wheel, Lazzeroni approached the often-overlooked piece of furniture with an open mind, creating it out of wood and upholstered leather, with an oversized tall back and subtle decorative elements in wood. The result is an interesting composition that can appear delicate and light but with a strong presence in any room.

Kaschkasch / Müller Möbelwerkstätten
From €699

Designing everything from tables and shelving to lighting and coatracks, 'Flai' is their inaugural bed model, produced for manufacturers Müller Möbelwerkstätten. The minimalist piece's clean lines and harmonious style contribute to its floating appearance.

'Frame' bed

Neri & Hu / De La Espada
Price on request

It's not often that we can say we've met a bed with great character, but Neri & Hu's Frame bed ticks this box. The Chinese duo's design – created for Spanish manufacturer De La Espada – features a minimal (but exquisitely formed) wooden structure lined with padded sections. It is available in a series of finishes, both in the wood used for the frame and the fabric for the upholstery: choose from Danish walnut, American white oak or European ash for the former, and from a range drawn from the brand’s vast fabric library the latter. (Pictured here: a neat Danish oiled walnut and powder pink linen combination.) Neri & Hu are longtime De La Espada collaborators; over the years, they've contributed myriad furniture pieces to the brand's collection, with seating, storage and tables all bearing their design mark.

'Joy' bed

Claesson Koivisto Rune / Arflex
€4,815

Swedish architecture and design practice Claesson Koivisto Rune’s penchant for curves is put to the test in this bed for Arflex. ‘Joy’ balances rigorous lines with sensual curves. The wooden base appears to float, thanks to the almost invisible metal feet, while the backrest features a crescent of padding. Finishes include wenge and oak stains and black and white lacquered versions.

'Shell' bed

Vincente Garcia Jimenéz / Emmebi
€2,842

Spanish designer Vincente Garcia Jimenéz's Shell design for Italian brand Emmebi looks like a chair that has morphed into a bed - an intentional visual trick that gives it a lightweight and elegant appearance. The tubular frame of the bed is made from lacquered chromium, while the panels of the base are in plywood and the headboard comes in natural beech.
