Daydreaming Bed (October 11-25, 2010)
Growing up, I always slept on a single size bed to save room. But when I attended college in the U.S., I was able to get myself a nice king size mattress but no bed. I brought back to the Philippines my memory foam mattress since my parents told me they were giving me a big newly renovated room . As I was used to just having my mattress on the floor, somehow I couldn’t find the right bed now that I needed one. So I ended up making one with a simple idea that it should make me think or daydream.
The borders are made out of 150 year old Molave wood, which used to be the thresholds for 10 foot tall wooden sliding doors of an old house. The large solid bottom leg of the bed is from a 90 year old Giant Ipil wood. And the accent design are branches from a 75 year old Tamarind tress my grandfather planted.
Dimensions: 92’’ x 72’’ x 34’’ Net Weight: Approxmately 360lbs.
