11 Creative Unusual Beds.
The HamBurger Bed
Are you obsessed with hamburgers? Guess what?! Not only can you eat one, but you can also sleep in one! How awesome is that? You’re probably wondering how this came to be– read about the origin here. I just wonder what sleeping in one feels like. It looks like sleeping in between two mattresses– is that even comfortable?
Here, we have the vertical Bed designed by Ernesto Neto. As seen in the image above,originally designed as an art piece before it was converted into a bed,it allows one to sleep comfortably while standing . Now if that has been your dream, you need to wake up– your dream is now a reality.
Did you know that this bed was designed in 1968 by an ID (Industrial Designer) student at San Francisco State University? Yup! His name was Charles Hall and it turns out that this product was his Masters’s project.
First of all, I wasn’t aware of the water bed until recently and I never knew it had existed for so long! Sadly, like almost everything else, it is no longer in vogue– still available but hasn’t made any reasonable sales. Luckily, Charles has made a great deal of fortune from it so it’s a win-win.
The Book bed was designed by Yusuke Suzuki who was a Japenese photographer. The idea behind this was to create ample space (especially in crowded homes). During the day it is closed up or folded and when opened at night, it becomes a giant book bed. A really creative and amazing concept!
The Yin-Yang Bed
For those who aren’t conversant with the Yin Yang concept, it is the principle that states that all things exist as inseparable and contradictory opposites, for example, female-male, dark-light and old-young.
The bed seems to have been designed for a male and a female or for a young and old. But I don’t think an old person would find this comfortable– heck! I don’t think anyone will find this comfortable especially the one who would stay at the top. However, the guy in the picture does seem quite comfortable but I’m guessing not for long.
The Ying Yang bed was designed by an Italian designer known as Alesso Pappa.
Giant Brush Bed
Okay! What do we have here? A brush bed designed by Ron Arad. It is quite obvious that the inspiration came from a toothbrush. I want to believe it is just an art piece because let’s face it, looks like a lot of
I’m not sure who designed this and why but it sure does feel super uncomfortable. Why would anyone deliberately want to sleep like this throughout?
This looks really classy– a lot different from the norm since glass has been used for windows and tables but not commonly for beds. I think the only problem people may have initially may be trust issues especially those who are plus-sized. Like what if it breaks? That’s your whole body crashing to the floor but hopefully, it won’t be tragic because of the mattress. I’m guessing people will get used to it after they try it.
Fetal Position Bed
This is for those who probably imagine what their days in the womb were like and for those who sleep without changing positions. Look no further! Here is the bed for you– a single position not just for a night or 9 months but for the rest of your life!
??? Slide Bed? Maybe
Honestly, I have no idea what this bed is called. I sincerely do not get the concept either. I just had to add it to the list because y’all just had to see it. I’m guessing this was created for people who love slides and probably often do them in their sleep. Again, it doesn’t make sense since the foam isn’t slippery. Who has any idea? Help us out here!
Now, this is called a tranquility pod. It uses pleasant sound, gentle vibration, and soothing light to transport the body, mind, and spirit to a tranquil state of relaxation. If you ever wanted to know what life as an egg would feel like, you should probably get this. 😀 Anyway, it is on sale for a whopping $30,000 here.
