After Bruno Fattorini became president at MDF Italia in 1992, their leitmotiv changed to ‘developing for precise life styles’. Sounds mighty interesting, but the Aluminium bed series (which he designed personally) a wonderful visual illustration of this approach.

These beds show the aesthetic purity of extremely simple shapes. Fattorini’s rational minimalism deduced the bed to its archetypical qualities, but without ‘undesigning’ it. All elements seem of the perfect length and thickness, and the result is of a beautiful coherent balance.
