The daybed is a way to reflect on the notions of rest: rest as forbidden; rest as perk; rest as monitored; rest as cost. Depending on your wealth, race, or gender, rest is a privilege. (Work isn’t rest.)
Powder-coated, welded tube aluminum: a durable and lightweight material that makes it easy to move around and carry (work requires sleep). A detachable lamp is attached at the head of the cot, acting as a reading light (work is never done). The sleeping surface is made from a deep blue neutral leather and upholstered to the frame.
