A unique original steel bed frame designed by Doktor A.
Created in 2001.
Inspired by German Expressionist films this huge steel bed frame is an angular gothic delight.
It's industrial starkness has a style hard to describe.
Solid welded intersecting 1" bars make up the head and foot boards between 3.5" diameter tube posts. Each of differing lengths and differing angles. The posts each have a platform set inside a few inches down from the opening to allow the insertion of up-lighters if desired.
The surface finish is a lightly textured, mottled brown oxidised tone with a clear matt lacquered topcoat to prevent any possible staining to bed linens.
Breaks down to four parts. The head board, foot board and two side angle irons. All fixes together with bolts (supplied) and the mattress is supported on basic wooden cross boards. The base level is lower to the floor than a regular bed to accentuate the massiveness. The bottom of the mattress sits just 18cm above the floor.
Built to take a standard double bed mattress.
I am open to offers so please do contact me about it.
Length : 212cm.
Headboard width : 217cm at widest point.
Headboard height :173cm.
Footboard width : 205cm at widest point.
Footboard height : 136cm.
Would require either collecting in person. Or arranging a courier to collect.
( Abbey Antiques are reliable and can deliver across Europe. See their pricing and contact info here http://www.abbey-antiques-web.co.uk/ With Abby the cost for the bed would be £94 ).
Would fit in a transit van but would need a couple of men to help move it from its present first floor position.
It is VERY heavy but two men can move the head board with a little effort.
International buyers I would realistically expect this is too large an item to ship but if you are confident you can organise a shipper then please contact me before you purchase.
