British bedmakers Savoir Beds reveals its newest designer collaboration with Sacha Walckhoff, Creative Director for Christian Lacroix. Walckhoff’s haute couture design sensibility and taste for extravagance and flair are masterfully translated by Savoir’s craft men & women into the ‘B’ Bed for Savoir Beds. Inspired by the handcrafted Savoir mattress pocket springs, the ‘B’ bed by Sacha Walckhoff features pod-like cubby-holes and a headboard made entirely of pocket springs, upholstered in ‘Powder’ blue Alcantara – a technological and innovative material most commonly used to cover car, aircraft and yacht interiors.
Walckhoff reimagined the seemingly industrial material of the spring into an elegant and subtle texture, allowing the elaborate style of the bed to embrace his passion for unexpected design and often quirky approach to fabrication.
In a retro silhouette, the ‘B’ bed nods to the furniture of 1970s, while its functionality, material and trend-driven colorway offer a contemporary edge.
Each B bed sold will be customized in keeping with Savoir tradition, and can be expected to cost as a small car (starting price is $42,000).
