Double bed with high headboard
Wood, Vienna straw
Bringing their highly architectural approach to the world of furniture for the first time, Storagemilano – the architecture and design studio founded by Barbara Ghidoni, Marco Donati and Michele Pasini – has created the stunning OTTOW headboard, featuring a bent beech-wood structure with square cross-sections, in two finishes: lacquered black or natural stained. An intriguing contemporary take on a classic decorative style, OTTOW creates a wood-panelling effect on the wall through a combination of different materials. The side inserts in woven cane frame the central section in perforated wood – also available in the upholstered version – while the black lacquered version comes with brass details and the natural stained version gets copper. The name is an evocative one: the choice of square cross-sections and the panel of perforated wood reveal that OTTOW is a tribute to Otto Wagner and his iconic 1906 Postsparkasse collection, which remains in the GTV catalogue to this day.
