When I had the first glimpse at Flexy junior bed designed by Joao Teixeira, I liked the concept. However, what intrigued me more, was the detailed work done by the designer on the form and function of the product. Designed in collaboration with Curve Lab, the Flexy junior bed merges adaptability and flexibility together. Barring all the rhetoric, we are talking of a modular kid’s bed here that might go into the production stage.
Joao Teixeira informs, “Curve Lab reached out to me earlier this year asking for a collaboration to design a junior bed,” and the designer agreed to their request. The biggest highlight of the furniture design is interchangeability. A bed that offers flexibility to the baby (or more so to guardians) to easily interchange between single, loft, or bunk beds just by swapping a few pieces along the way.
“Curve Lab’s expertise lies in curved plywood, an approach we often highlight in our product range, so this was a no-brainer and we decided to accept the challenge,” he adds. Boasting a beautiful design with clean lines and wood taking the central role, Flexy junior bed is worth trying. The curves at the bottom are great and safe for young children with minimum risk of toddlers getting their foot injured amid bumping on their way to reach the top.
The legs of the furniture embrace the bed frame and lock it into place, thus making it easier to interchange the bunks. We don’t get a proper answer to what makes the interlocking possible. However, Joao states on Instagram that it’s feasible due to some hidden metal hardware underneath each module, which he refuses to mention.
Speaking on the length of the legs, Joao explains, “As the outer bed frame is built out of four components, it’s easy to adapt and use different lengths.” The legs can be shorter for single beds or extended to accommodate a top bunk.
