Custom designed for a residence I was working on, this bed was to take mid-century sensibility and infuse it with locally salvaged wood, which in this case was a genuine Egyptian mashrabia.
When a clumsy couple asked me to create a piece of furniture that represented my vision of Egypt’s future, the first thing I did was ask my client what the requirements were and what was otherwise lacking in their home.
