Description Stanhope" bed by Produzione Memphis, Milan, design from 1982.
This double bed designed by architect and designer Michael Graves for Memphis Milan in 1982 is an important piece of postmodern design. It also illustrates how Graves himself brought architectural forms and aesthetics from large-scale projects to the small-scale realm of furniture design. Graves thought of everything with "Stanhope" and designed a single piece that incorporates the bed itself, a lighting system and nightstands. The frame takes a single European mattress and is decorated with root maple veneer, lacquered wood, mirror, brass, glass and 20 bulbs (EU 12v 3w) and perspex.
