The softness and design of the John-John sofa in a bed with huge potential. Natural balance. Confident elegance. Two large and comfortable headboard cushions evoke the characteristic backrest of the sofa in the elegant movement of their surfaces. Delicate and subtle folds that underline the tactility of the leather are achieved through precision artisanal work.
The headboard structure is created from solid beech and poplar wood with MDF infill panels and padding in polyurethane foam. The headboard cushions are padded in goose down and polyester wadding and joined to the structure by the Pelle Frau® leather upholstery. The bed frame is built from solid beech and poplar wood padded in polyurethane foam and is prepared to hold a specific resting surface comprising a series of beech slats that are attached to the central crosspiece. Feet are aluminium with a Ruthenium finish.
Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean-Marie Massaud graduated in 1990 from Les Ateliers, EcoleNationaleSupérieure de CréationIndustrielle, Paris. He began to work both in Asia and in France, finally opening his own office in Paris in 1994. Since than, he has dedicated himself to industrial and furniture design, building important relationships with brands such as Authentics, Baccarat and Magis. His collaboration with Marc Berthier and his work in the field of town planning led him towards design and architecture. He is concerned with design in various contexts, industrial products and furniture. His contextual approach centres on research into the essential, within which the individual remains the centre of attention. It is a work upheld by research into the senses, magic, and vital emotion which brings him to work with very different brands: Cassina, Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Cacharel, Lancôme, Tronconi and Yamaha offshore.
His works have been awarded several prizes and many of his designs are nowadays on show in the design collections of the major museums worldwide: from Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Paris and Zurich: from the permanent collection of the Musée National d'ArtModerne de Paris to the permanent collections of the Museum fürGestaltung, Zürich, of The Chicago Athenaeum- Museum of Architecture and Design, of The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and of The Musée des arts Décoratifs, Paris.
