Bookcase box bed equipped with openable base. The available bases can be openable only to 45° or even horizontally, useful when changing the sheets. Inside the bed there is a practical bottom panel to protect from dust. In this version, the b ookcase area is on all 4 sides.
The two most important characteristics of the japanese bookcase box bed with openable base are: the outer frame is equipped with an external support that goes all around the bed and can contain books; the base is openable revealing a very practical storage container. This bed belongs to the category of Arpel bookcase beds and Arpel storage beds. If you prefer not to have a bookcase at the head of bed for lack of space, you can select the reduced bookcase box bed that cannot contain books at the head of the bed.
To optimise the space in the storage container we recommend a bedframe height of 40 cm.
Internal measures: variable. This bed is available as a single, french, double or king size bed
External measures: 35 cm more than the selected internal measures. Example: if the internal measures are 160x200, the external measrues will be 195x235
Note: to avoid scratches on the bed frame caused by the opening and closing of the slatted base we will make the outer frame 2 cm larger, therefore, the real width of the outer frame for a 160 cm wide mattress is 197 cm
Bookshelf height: 35 cm. It can contain books with a maximum height of 25 cm. The height can be enlarged by 5 cm at a time, this means it can progressively reach 40, 45 cm to contain books with a maximum height of 30, 35 cm
Bookshelf depth: 15 cm
Custom: The mattress size and height of this bed can be customized. Ask for a price quote.
Wooden headboard: A Zen model tilted wooden headboard is available as accessory. The space taken up by headboard in the internal frame is 5 cm. For this accessory we will therefore make the bed frame 5 cm longer than the selected measures at no extra costs. This means that a bed with headboard for a 200 cm long mattress will be built with an internal length of 205 cm and an external length of 240 cm. If these extra 5 cm create problems due to lack of space, we can modify the attachment of the headrest placing it completely on top of the head panel instead of creating external lateral grooves for the snap-fit system. For the modified headboard please contact us
This bed may be customized with one-coloured or two-coloured finishings. See wood colours
Bed frame, feet, headboard: in solid laminated beechwood
A sturdy but light openable base with a two lifting pistons for each mechanism (arm). It is also equipped with a balancing mechanism that connects the two arms and synchronizes their movements for a correct opening of the base from a frontal position.
The slats are in curved laminated beechwood. The opening mechanism can be selected so that it opens only to 45° or it can be selected with a double movement, both 45° and horizontal. The second possibility is useful for changing the sheets.
This bed is accessorized with a floor panel to protect from dust in the storage container.
This bed cannot contain japanese tatami because of the openable base.
This bed uses metal parts for the assembly. It is not one the beds with a lock-snap assembly system. The headboard must be inserted through lateral grooves that run down the lateral bed frame panels.
If treated, the wood may be cleaned with a damp cloth without solvents or detergents. If natural, it may only be dusted or vacuum cleaned.
To complete the bed, choose a headboard or futon from the accessories. If you wish to sleep on a japanese mattress, find out more about our Futons, if you prefer a modern and ecological mattress, discover our Bio Memory.
