A sheet of leather “pinched” in two places at the base: here is where the movement and natural inclination of the Alys headboard originate. The Buratti brothers are once again managing a material that they know well because they’ve already used it on the Doyl chair when they explored the theme of upholstered leather, made more comfortable than with traditional processes. For Alys, they designed a comfortable, protective headboard, a very effective shape that has thin perimeter strips marked by a lengthwise seam. The bed frame can be placed at two different heights, thanks to a standard equipment made of two sets of feet (h. 5cm or 15cm). The bed surface was designed to be low specifically to suggest an effect of suspension and floating of the super-comfortable mattress.
