This design, featuring slender, well-proportioned forms, was deeply inspired by tradition, and the art of cabinet making played an essential role in defining the profile of the high, upholstered headboard and the bedframe supported by tall feet at the sides. The Sweetdreams bed, designed by Ron Gilad and presented last year as a multimedia installation, has joined the Molteni&C collection. Sweetdreams is an evocative design, focused on transmitting wellness deriving from tranquillity that can draw on our bodies’ relaxing, regenerating energies. A bed with a padded slatted base with solid wood legs. A padded headboard which can be fixed to the wall, framed by a solid wood profile.
Design By Ron Gilad
Ron Gilad was born in Tel Aviv in 1972. After a few years in New York, he lives and works in Tel Aviv and Milan. Ron Gilad’s hybrid objects combine a practical ingenuity with an aesthetic effect which and are placed on a boundary between the abstract and functional. When he was asked to collaborate with Molteni&C, Ron Gilad initially wondered if he should behave as a designer or just be himself in the most authentic way. He found his answer by creating a connection between his more abstract and artistic ideas and commercial industry mechanisms and converting them into ingenious design products.
