A “Case Study” in The of Evolution of Mid Century Design
Studying the contrast between these two iconic beds is a great way to understand Mid-Century design principles and how they live on today. The two main points of contrast are the following:
- George Nelson Bed: Reflects the design sensibilities of George Nelson, which often included clean lines, minimalistic forms, and an emphasis on functionality. Specific design characteristics would depend on the particular model of the bed.
- Case Study Bed: Embraces mid-century modern aesthetics, typically featuring a platform-style frame with simple, sleek lines. It often combines wood and metal elements for a minimalist and timeless look.
- George Nelson Bed: Materials used would vary based on the specific design and manufacturer, but they would align with mid-century modern materials of the time, which could include wood, metal, and upholstery.
- Case Study Bed: Modernica’s Case Study Beds are typically constructed using solid wood, metal, and other high-quality materials that capture the essence of mid-century modern design while offering durability.
