My work days are taken up writing code. Or staring at others’ code wondering what they were trying to achieve. The stuff I’ve been doing at work hasn’t been very exciting recently and I figured I needed a new project at home. So I built a bed. It’s more of a futon base than a bed as pictured by most people. But I’ve been on futons since forever (apart from the year in Europe which had a lot of trains, ferries, a park bench and a few mountain huts, and the year at my parents’ which was a sofa bed) and I got some cool tatami mats so I based the design around them.
