"SNUG" by Stattmann New furniture in the attic extensions by JWA Jan Wiese Architekten & Ralf Wilkening in Berlin.

Well bedded

Stattmann Neue Möbel and Atelier Steffen Kehrle present their first bed: "SNUG".

A simple bed, made in North Rhine-Westphalia with ash or oak wood, which comes from sustainable forestry. Thanks to an ingenious plug-in screw connection, it is quick to assemble and pleasant to the touch - that was Stattmann Neue Möbel's idea for their first product in this product field. With "SNUG" from the Steffen Kehrle studio, the family business is now not only filling the gap in its product range, but has also come up with a bed that can serve as a lifelong companion. "We would like to give the wood a surface, a form and structure that essentially corresponds to its origin. So we have given the bed lines that have a certain softness," says Steffen Kehrle. This is expressed formally in the cylindrical feet, the fine joints and rounded edges, but also in the pleasant feel of the wood. "The surface is sealed with hard wax, which is just as hard-wearing as lacquer, but more open-pored. It feels much more beautiful and is more natural overall, even if its use means more effort for us in terms of application and drying time," says Nicola Stattmann.

If a coloured accent is required instead of the pure aesthetics of the wood, Stattmann offers a choice of various stains such as a velvety midnight blue. Special colours from the NCS and Pantone system are also available on request. "The advantage of a medium-sized craft enterprise is that you can do things differently with ease," says Nicola Stattmann. "SNUG" is variable in size, from 120 centimetres wide up to 200 centimetres, for all those who appreciate a little more space. The headboard is also variable. Thanks to the wide range of designs, "SNUG" can also serve as an elegant daybed. (am)
