The Case Study Fastback Platform Bed is crafted entirely of laminated hardwood. Its structure is uniquely pegged and joined to form one solid, durable unit. Supporting brushed, nickel-plated steel legs are bent at angles. As with all Modernica beds, the Fastback Bed is the result of quality craftsmanship and painstaking attention to detail. Relatively light in weight and feel, this bed is at home in spaces craving streamlined furnishings and mid-century style. (Mattress and bedding not included.)
Material(s): Laminated hardwood
Beautiful styling!!! Great construction.

Our Case Study Fastback bed arrived the other day and it's a beauty -- sleek and stylish, everything we were hoping for. Assembling it was relatively easy although, remember, the frame/base comes in one rather large piece, so make sure you can get it into your bedroom. Once assembled, the bed is firm and comfortable and brings a nice touch of modern elegance to any bedroom.
Designer: George Nelson
When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."
Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as antihuman." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.
Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.View other products by George Nelson
