“The « Safe Rest » is a daybed that also exists in double depth. Here the principle is very simple. The structure is made of two arched tubes that form the outline. These tubes are connected by perpendicular crosspieces. The whole is covered with a fabric that folds underneath the couch, where it is
strapped and stretched like a corset. This cover is a sewn sandwich, composed of canvas on the underside, foam, and wool blanket on the topside. The seams, parallel lines five centimetres apart, have a structural role. “
