“Giving respect to materials and craft is very important,” says Nathan Yong. In the case of the Cove Bed (2017), the Singapore-based designer fully demonstrates his reverence. The inner edges of the headboard, footboard and side rails, for instance, are rounded over rather than squared off. “I wanted to create a bed that’s sturdy but not clunky,” he says, “and to make the mattress seem like it’s ‘tucking into’ the bed frame.” The unadorned profile highlights the beauty of the wood, while the turned-and-tapered bedposts have tops that are subtly cupped. “It’s just a small thing,” he says of the latter. “But then you touch them, and there’s this moment that touches your senses.”
