Description

French master-craftsmen Domeau & Peres have long collaborated with Australian designer Marc Newson on projects encompassing interiors of a spaceship, of a Falcon Jet, and product design pieces. This collaboration unveils a leather-upholstered bed surrounded by chunky bumpers at its base. The piece was included in the retrospective ‘Marc Newson at Home’ presented by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2013.

Marc Newson enclosed the Bumper Bed within padded leather cushions to evoke the sense of sleeping on a mattress laid directly on the ground.

"Most people I know have at some point in their lives slept on a mattress on the floor," said Newson. "So I thought it would be nice to design a bed that would [encourage] people like me to replace their faithful mattress with a 'beautiful bed'." One lip sits flush with the mattress and a second wraps around the bed at floor level, with an orange leather strip running between the two. The sides are deep enough to be used as seats and can be ordered from Domeau & Pérès in white, dove (pictured), or chocolate colors.

Domeau & Pérès

Paris-based atelier Domeau & Pérès was founded in 1996 by master saddler, upholsterer and furniture makers, Bruno Domeau & Philippe Pérès – both graduates of France’s legendary craftsmanship institution Les Compagnons du Devoir.

 A long-kept secret destination for its comprehensive set of expertise and its meticulous work, the atelier has cultivated an international clientele of high expectations. Today, Domeau & Pérès' extensive portfolio encompasses bespoke projects and special commissions for clients including private collectors, established artists and discerning businesses such as Falcon Jets, Hermès, LVMH, Karl Lagerfeld, Dior, Berluti, the Bridge Club in Bridgehampton or the Royal Monceau hotel in Paris, amongst others. 

Domeau & Pérès' rare design literacy and passion combined with their obsessive pursuit of perfection has also drawn design luminaries such as Marc Newson, Martin Szekely, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Andrée Putman, Pharrel Williams or Pablo Reinoso to the atelier for the development of special commissions. Their longstanding relationships and collaborations with such talents has inspired the Editions Domeau & Pérès — the atelier’s signature collection of exclusive designs created for and developed by the atelier.

Today, Domeau and Pérès have built a significant catalogue of contemporary design editions that belongs to the permanent collections of museums including Le Musée des Arts Décoratifs and produced numerous design exhibitions in collaboration with public institutions including the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum Krefeld, the Jacques Tati estate ‘Les Films de mon Oncle’. In 2005, the two esteemed artisans were bestowed the honoring title of Chevaliers des Arts et des Lettres by the French government for their commitment and ongoing contribution to France’s cultural heritage.
