The Five to Nine daybed draws inspiration from 1900s scenic designs that portrayed a place for creative escape – a space as physical as it was mental – the studios of the great artists. Designed by Milan-based Studiopepe, the Five to Nine daybed is the star player in a fictitious artist’s studio, a cosmopolitan, contemporary space, cradle of creative genius. With bolster pillows that run its entire length, the daybed has a bold personality and is super-versatile. Thanks to the array of upholstery options possible, it can fill many needs and fit in different settings – upholstered in leather, for a minimalist Bauhaus effect, or in mohair velvet for maximum comfort and enveloping softness. The wood seat structure has an open-pore painted finish, with turned legs and achieves its fullest expression once the bolster pillows, one by one, have been set in place, along with the armrest and backrest (available in two sizes), and the round side table with surfaces in concrete or metal, in various colors and finishes for a more textured effect.
The daybed is an invitation to relax or wait in comfort. Thanks to its sleek linearity, it can stand alone or be a fitting addition to an arrangement of furniture pieces and accessories, ideal for both domestic use and public spaces. The daybed can also be used at home as a guest bed, thanks to a special linen-upholstered, softly padded mattress that, when placed on the bolster pillows, transforms the seat into a real sleep oasis. By applying the Japanese lifestyle philosophy to the new needs of the contemporary home, the mattress is a removable accessory that allows increasingly versatile use of home furnishings.
