KIEZBETT

The Kiezbett is for all people who, alongside valuing healthy sleep, also prioritise social and ecological awareness and simple design. As a sustainably, socially and fairly produced solid wood bed, the Kiezbett is committed to significant, positive social change. The Kiezbett makes both possible - sleeping well while also changing the world a little bit.

 An elegant frame that appears to float is created in a timeless design which is made of solid pine. Thanks to its simple construction, the Kiezbett can be easily assembled and dismantled in just a few minutes. By simply plugging the four elements together, a straightforward structure is formed, with an unmistakable appearance thanks to its diagonal connecting slats and its colourful joints. In addition to its quirky simplicity, the Kiezbett boasts stability and durability.

 The neighbourhood bed is produced and delivered in cooperation with small, regional companies. In this way, every bed supports local actors and promotes environmental and social projects in its home city. The neighbourhood bed is made from pine wood that hails from carefully managed forests on the outskirts of Berlin. Most of the trees are cut by trainees, pulled out of the forest by horses and then processed by a local sawmill. The neighbourhood bed is assembled in an inclusive workshop, packed with recycled materials from the region. It is finally delivered to customers by bicycle, keeping its environmental footprint to a minimum.
