rogier rouwet



Made of solid timber, of oak and the guest bed of cherry. The oak was sold as fire wood in the Achterhoek, a region in the East of The Netherlands, a pile of round trunks. I found the wild cherry while on a walk, perished because of mold eating away at the core of its trunk. We were able to track down the owner. I've taken it to the sawmill and left it to dry for years. Carefully selected and processed for these furniture pieces.


The headboard of the oak bed offers storage space and extendable, folding bedside tables. The joints that make it possible to take the beds apart are often hidden or identifiable as round brass rods in the wooden surfaces. As with the other brass parts. A thick layer of felt in between the brass, the wood and the floor.

The same joints and details are used for the guest bed. As in a series. Four large drawers made of black MDF are part of the bed, extra storage space at home in which even large boxes fit.

Design and realisation by Rogier Rouwet.
