Henry Francis Design
A divine evolution of form, materiality and consciousness, the Universo daybed offers an evangelistic design purity; a modern platform for salvation, reflection and respite.
Released as a limited edition, Universo daybed can be customized with a range of beautiful aniline leathers, adding a luxurious sleek and elegant presence to any residential interior.
We wanted to design a furniture piece that was pure in form and simplicity; a practical and resilient daybed and bench for residential spaces, but also robust enough to allow crossover into residential lobbies and galleries.
The double bolster cushion gives the Universo Daybed its signature look and allows the piece to be orientated within a room or space.
A gently contoured solid timber frame softens edges and matches the pad cushion profile, allowing comfort and protection from wear and tear.
The aged brass cuff detail adds refinement with purpose, protecting the timber frame at its most vulnerable point and gracefully elevating the leg above the floor surface.
Intrinsically, our daybed design also responds to longevity. As with all our designs, classic proportions, natural materials and sturdy construction details allow a long lifespan.
We believe that quality and lifespan are as equally important as the visual narrative.
Universo daybed, Specifications
Size: 3000L x 800W x 450mmH
Materials: Aniline Leather, FSC American Oak, aged Brass or blackened Brass foot cuff
Aniline Leather was selected for its practical, hard wearing qualities and as a natural and beautiful upholstery material. Twin needle stitching details allow a graceful contoured transition from cushion edges to the surface panels.
Solid American Oak was selected for its beautiful grain, texture and strength.
Our simple, traditional woodworking jointing combines with the strength and durability of Oak to allow a simple contoured frame.
Brass with a hand applied blackened aged finish was selected as a cuff detail to withstand physical knocks and chemicals from vacuuming and floor cleaning.
An optional integrated security foot with concealed fixtures is available for more public spaces. The foot, at 4 points, holds the piece securely in position avoiding any movement and possibility of theft.
Our simple internal timber jointing profiles have been factory tested and prototyped to withstand excessive stresses and weight loads.
The Universo daybed shelf uses FSC certified American oak and zero emission fiberboard as a substrate below the foam and leather upholstery panels.
We are designers, manufacturers and current worldwide distributers of the Universo daybed
