"Inspired by the shirt collar of a craftsman”

I love the simplicity of the shirt collar of a craftsman.The kind of collar often used by fine artists and the heavy workers.It is actually my favorite kind of shirt.

One commission I got a few years ago was to design a sofa-bed. However I found that in many cases you don’t have space for a complete sofa, but the need for the occasional bed. So I created instead an easy-chair-bed. Small enough to fit in your home or in the hotel room. Large and comfortable enough to relax in or to climb up into and work with your laptop. And in a swift movement it folds out to a complete bed.

And for inspiration, I looked at my shirt.
