When designing this bed for Zanotta, the designer affirms she was inspired by the Gió Ponti headboards of the early 60’s, in particular, one from the ‘Hotel Royal’ in Naples. “The light proportion and shape of the upholstered head and foot boards have a modern vintage mood, I wanted to achieve a contemporary version of those iconic designs.” This statement by the designer better explains the references to past times, particularly the mid-century contract furniture classics: the fabric covered buttons refer to a quilting of the headboard and footboard, while the rounded off corners are emphasized by a sewing edge available tone-on-tone or contrasting. The extra slim metal legs with tubular supports are also a retro-reference. For larger rooms, Hotelroyal is available with an asymmetrical headboard which accommodates a metal side-table with cowhide covered top. This feel of ‘warm architectural design’ allows Hotelroyal to fit into a wide range of home and hotel environments.

Graphite or white painted steel frame and feet. Suspension on natural painted bent beech strips. Headboard and footboard upholstered with polyurethane. Removable cover in fabric or leather. The headboard is equipped with a night stand made of graphite or white painted steel sheet, with top covered in cowhide pigmentato 90. The night stand can be arranged either on the left or on the right side of the bed, as requested. Upon request the sewing edge is available in dark grey grosgrain.
