It would be relatively easy to mistake this bed design as a bunch of thin wood planks stacked atop each other. Apparently tired of sleeping on mattresses held up by squeaky frames, the Polish home designers at Gie El have created a bed whose frame is just as alluring as the prospect of getting a good night’s sleep.

The Organique is composed of layers of oak wood that can be removed or added to elevate the mattress higher or lower. The transparent headboard can be laid vertically at the height of 50cm, horizontally for a medium height of 30cm, or removed entirely for those with no purpose for it.

But my favorite feature has to be how rounded the frame is. Countless times have I gone to the bathroom in the middle of the night only to return to an unwanted stab in the shin from my traditional square corner bed frame. The Organique removes this nightly terror and instead replaces it with the probability of landing on a bed made up of more frame than mattress.

The Organique is set to launch at this year’s International Interiors Show, which will be held at Cologne, Germany from January 15-21. You can find more details, as well as some nifty CAD and 3DS files of the project, over on the Gie El webpage.
