Description Gae Aulenti (1927-2012) was a renowned Italian architect. Her projects include key cultural landmarks – Musée d’Orsay (1980–86) and the Contemporary Art Gallery at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the restoration of Palazzo Grassi in Venice (1985–86). Often straying from architecture into furniture, exhibitions, graphic and interiors, her core sensibility is best understood in her own words: “Advice to whoever asks me how to make a home is to not have anything, just a few shelves for books, some pillows to sit on… to take a stand against the ephemeral, against passing trends [and] return to lasting values.”.

The simple design of the Locus solus series daybed is representative of the work of Aulenti. The taupe velvet mattress rests on a bent tubular structure. The chrome frame presents few minor signs of age, the reupholstery is recent.
