GranTorino Coupé Bed
Jean-Marie Massaud designs a more compact and minimalist version of the GranTorino Bed. The key compositional element of the GranTorino Coupé Bed is its smaller headboard, which creates an elegant sense of continuity with the bed frame.
Birch plywood is used for the structure of the GranTorino Coupé Bed headboard and the soft padding of the quilt is in polyester wadding. Sides in spruce blockboard and footboard in poplar plywood with light polyurethane foam padding. The upholstery of the GranTorino Coupé Bed can come in Pelle Frau® leather or in the versions in which saddle-leather is combined with leather or fabric, and leather is combined with fabric: Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Pelle Frau® leather for the back of the headboard and the bed frame and Pelle Frau® leather or removable fabric for the quilt. Refined "X"-stitching, carried out by hand with contrasting thread, enriches the cover of the quilt. The saddle-leather version has relief stitching and the clean cut edges are finished by hand. The cylindrical aluminium feet can be covered in Pelle Frau® leather or painted black. The Gran Torino Coupé Bed also comes in a version complete with storage unit. The opening system makes it possible to access the storage space in two different ways. As well as the regular vertical lifting of the bed surface, it can also be raised horizontally so it is easier to make the bed. Both mechanisms have a safety lock. The base of the storage unit is made from MDF panels.
