A young German cabinetmaker and product designer Andreas Mikutta has recently realised this subtle and beautifully simple daybed made out of soap-treated ash wood. Almost ascetic in its appearance, the austerity of ‘Pause’ is softened by a stack of richly coloured pure wool and leather cushions which contrast with and liven the charcoal grey of the mattress and the subdued hue of the wooden frame. Aimed to ‘advocate calmness and tranquility in life’, the daybed was presented at the [D³] Contest during this year’s edition of imm cologne.

More about the design:

 

‘Slowing the pace of life, making it sustainable, being moderate, these are the topics that I’m interested in at the moment and that are reflected in my products.For me, moderation means not only a restrained formal vocabulary and a mindful approach to materials and resources, it above all means a mindful approach to ourselves.Pause is advocating calmness and tranquillity in life in the digital age.The daybed is made out of soap-treated ash wood, the mattress and pillows use fabrics out of pure wool respectively organically processed leather.The mattress is a futon with combined layers of wool and organic cotton.’

 

‘Pause’ will be distributed by a Saxon manufacturer Heimatwerke.de
