The new informal

Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
Ludovica + Roberto Palomba designed Mr. Moonlight with the same philosophy that inspired Let it be. A relaxed and informal style, a profound sensation of comfort and liberty, and the same lightness of design.
The headboard is like a large, soft pillow, embellished with simple central stitching and elaborate edges. The bed surface sits atop a metal structure finely upholstered in saddle leather or leather, like the sofa seats. Once again the feet are positioned in from the corners and, even higher than in the sofa, intensify the sense that the volumes are floating suspended.
The study of proportions is perfectly calibrated and strives to avoid any possible visual obstacle. The bed frame, flush with the mattress, replicates the structure of the sofa where the seat cushion is flush with the supporting frame. The result is a compact series of volumes that stands out for its subtle elegance.
The headboard structure is in solid poplar and birch plywood with polyurethane foam padding and a goose down cushion. The sides and footboard in die-cast aluminium, while the corners and feet in moulded aluminium with ruthenium finish. The bed surfaces are in birch plywood. The upholstery of the base and headboard comes in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System or Nest leather, also combined with fabrics, or in Cuoio Saddle leather combined with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.
