Dwr Case Study Bed Sale

Product Information

The Case Study Bed adheres to the highest standards of workmanship and genuine materials. Designed by Modernica Studios and built by Modernica’s master builders, this bed is the perfect definition of form follows function.

The superstructure of the bed and the headboard are built with a solid one-and-a-half-inch thick laminated hardwood. And each bed is engineered and built with six, rather than the standard four-legs. These additional legs add a remarkable overall-strength and sturdiness to the bed, which makes for a peaceful nights sleep. The mattress sits directly on the platform which is built with two zinc-plated perforated steel inserts. These perforated inserts allow the mattress to breathe naturally - thus eliminating the need for a standard conventional box spring.

The Case Study Bed is engineered to provide a lifetime of outstanding durability, while maintaining a modern, elegant look for the home.

If it looks like a duck...
First off I don't recall saying that it made me puke. I believe I said it was an ill-proportioned, derivative, POS. And I firmly stand by those words, especially now that they've released the accompanying bedside table - which looks like an Eames chair ran headlong into a school desk.

Liking something doesn't make it good. (the popularity of Justin Beiber should aptly illustrate this point.)

Secondly, I was pretty clear in my reasons for criticizing it. Modernica is very up-front that the bed is "inspired" by the Case Study Houses. Their lack of specificity can only point a fear of being sued should they even come close to using the Eames name. Ergo derivative.

The majority of reactions in posts about the bed (present company excluded) is that the legs are heavy and stubby. Ergo ill-proportioned. (proportion being the visual relationships that influence perceptions of beauty)

Instead of criticizing me for being negative why don't you take one of your many posts about the Alpine bed and lob some substantive points about why it's good instead of simplistically repeating "I like it."
