Jean-Marie Massaud has designed a more compact and minimalist version of the GranTorino Bed. The key compositional element of the GranTorino Coupé Bed is the smaller headboard, which creates an elegant sense of continuity with the bed frame. Delicate ‘x’-quilting, carried out by hand with contrasting thread, decorates the quilt padding of the headboard.
Birch plywood is used for the structure of the headboard while the soft padding of the quilt is in polyester wadding. Sides in spruce blockboard and footboard in poplar plywood with light polyurethane foam padding.
It can be upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in two different materials, so you can team saddle leather with leather or fabric, or team leather with fabric: Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Pelle Frau® leather for the rear of the headboard and bedframe and Pelle Frau® leather or removable fabric for the front quilting. The cylindrical aluminium feet can be covered in Pelle Frau® leather or painted black.
The Gran Torino Coupé Bed, sophisticated, compact and with refined manufacture and materials now comes in a new version complete with storage. Designed to be easy to use and practical, the opening system offers two different ways into the storage area. As well as the usual vertical lifting of the bed base, it can also be raised horizontally, for easier bed making. Both mechanisms have a safety lock.
The base for the storage area is in MDF (medium density fibreboard) panels.
Delicate X-shaped hand-stitching in contrasting-colour thread is used for the padding and the quilting on the headboard.
Headboard and bedframe are covered entirely in Pelle Frau® Nest Leather or from the Color System. Other combinations include the headboard and bed frame in Pelle Frau® Nest leather or from the Color System and the padded areas upholstered in the same leather or fabric. The back of the headboard can be upholstered in the same materials as the frame or in Poltrona Frau Jacquard fabric.
The headboard structure is in birch plywood, while the soft padding of the quilting is in polyester wadding. Sides and footboard are in multilayer poplar, slightly padded with polyurethane foam. Its cylindrical metal feet are painted black.
