Bed GB 1085 and innovative mattress subconstruction
Made become reality with students of The Ulm School of Design
While teaching at The Ulm School of Design Hans Gugelot was assigned the
job to perform the interior finish together with students. At that
time, apart from the well known HfG-stool, a new subconstruction for
foam rubber mattresses came up. This innovative design signalises
simplicity, low effort and functionality at little cost.

Hans Gugelot accomodatet the lack of housing space at that time with the draft of a twin bed which was to be used as a double bed when extended and as a single bed when pushed together.
In both positions the seat height is 42 cm. The double bed has a rack in which both bed drawers can be run on wheels without an effort.
