Espace laissé libre entre un mur et un lit, le terme « ruelle » inspire ici le designer berlinois Martin Holzapfel qui imagine un mobilier hybride alliant cadre et tête de lit, banc, rangement et table de chevet que l’on positionne à son gré.
À propos : Bed and bench – the object Ruelle combines both pieces of furniture in one. It is also a friendship between the bed and the bedside tables. The head of the bed-frame rests freely on the bench-seat. Thus the two elements offer a certain freedom for individual positioning, but remain dependent on one another. The bench defines an intimate sleeping area within the room, enabling each person to create their own very private space. At the same time, as it is a continuous element, the seat connects the two sleepers.
Consisting of a two-part seat element with shelf and bed-frame, the bed Ruelle can be easily assembled and dismantled. The bed-frame is reinforced by two struts and all-round supporting frame inside, and it is firmly screwed. In addition, the corners are attached with special bed connectors and rawlplugs. Originally, the term ruelle used to refer to the small alleyway between the bed and the wall. As beds tended to accommodate many people, the small ruelle, used when getting up or lying down, was one of the very first personal spaces, the threshold between public and private life.
