Hot or Not? Modernica Case Study Alpine Series Bed

Hot or Not? Modernica Case Study Alpine Series Bed

The newest of Modernica's catalog of midcentury designs, the Case Study Alpine Series Bed is all about curves. The multi-ply bentwood walnut frame has an interesting appearance we're not sure whether to love or hate. From certain angles we love the simple grace, especially the curve where the base meets the headboard...

But from the foot of the bed, the Modernica Case Study Alpine Series Bed's skiing inspired form reminds us less about the winter sport and more of a large fork, the three lengthwise supports clawing upward to grasp the mattress. What do you think about this new design?
