bed.01 Jan'15

Six arms reach out from a central spine to support the bed frames surround, slats and headboard.  These arms are pin jointed at the base, with wire rope tensioned between opposite arms to constrain their width and further rigging down to the base to create a static, level structure. The base extends out to prevent the whole thing tipping over when your sat on one edge. The hidden base structure leaves the appearance the bed is floating when viewed from standing.
