Ludovica + Roberto Palomba have designed the Mr Moonlight bed with the same philosophy that inspired the Let it be sofa. A relaxed and informal style, a profound sensation of comfort and liberty, and the same lightness of design.
The headboard is like a large, soft pillow, embellished with simple central stitching and elaborate edges. The bed surface sits atop a metal structure finely upholstered in saddle-leather or leather, like the seats of the sofa. The feet of Mr Moonlight are also set back with respect to the corners and, even higher than in the sofa, intensify the perception that the volumes are suspended, floating. The study of proportions is perfectly calibrated and intent on avoiding any possible visual obstacle. The bed frame, flush with the mattress, replicates the structure of the sofa where the seat cushion is flush with the supporting frame. The result is a compact series of volumes that stands out for its subtle elegance.
The headboard structure of the Mr Moonlight bed is in solid poplar and birch plywood with polyurethane foam padding and a goose down cushion. The base is made from beech plywood. Die-cast aluminium for the sides and corners in moulded aluminium with Ruthenium finish for the footboard and feet. The bed bases are in birch plywood. The base and headboard are upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather, also combined with fabrics, or in Cuoio Saddle leather combined with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.
