To quote the internationally recognized design duo: “Hästens’ blue check is iconic. You just can’t refuse when you’re the first people ever asked to reinterpret it. For us it’s a great honor, but also a great responsibility.”
Bernadotte & Kylberg’s philosophy aligns perfectly with that of Hästens. We are driven to create beds that last. They are driven to create iconic design that lasts, always keeping function and the end-user in focus.
“Our departure point was what we ourselves associate most with Hästens: a total unwillingness to compromise when it comes to quality and details. Design is so much more than color and shape – it also has to do with sustainability: creating timeless products of high quality in a well-thought-out way.”
Last year we launched the two first results of our companionship of souls: the Marwari and Appaloosa beds – sophisticated interpretations of the blue check. Their designs both pays homage to our heritage as master saddle-makers and propels our blue check to a level of contemporary art.
Now it’s time for the next masterpieces: bed benches and nightstands, carefully created to match and enhance the impressive personalities of Marwari and Appaloosa. The designers have excelled both when it comes to beauty and function. Cubistic intarsia pattern in ash and oak, hidden hinges and “soft close” functions are only some of the fine detail work you’ll enjoy for years to come.
