Ecological bedframe design

At: Riviera

Riviera has been in the sustainable bedding industry for many years. Their latest project is their own brand Pure bed, to create a complete ecological segment of bedframes and matrasses. The assignment given was to design an ecological bedframe for the brand Pure beds.

This was done by conducting market research, material research, ergonomics, brand analysis and following the design steps. This resulted in a slender and minimalistic design using rubberwood as main material as it is a rest material, fitting with the brand and very ecological. The bedframe has a unique headboard which can be tilted. From the final design a production plan was created with technical drawings and an assembly manual.
