Gaudi Inspired Bed
This bed used shapes inspired by the Gaudi building Casa Batllo.
Oak frames were made up with a series of carefully calculated vertical strips joined across the centre. These made up the initial canvas for the main focal part of the bed, the curved structures encasing the upper level and back board.
Templates were made from ply wood that were then used to shape the oak frames into organic free flowing structures. Then the final shaping was made using various hand carving and grinding tools.
The stairs were made in a similar way, routered out using hand made templates.
The whole bed is made of solid oak with so square edge in sight!
The corners to the bed frames were constructed with layers of oak veneer sandwiched together with glue into a press over a form to give their shape.
