Ulisse Daybed by ClassiCon

With Ulisse, Konstantin Grcic developed his idea of a daybed, combining the symbolic nature of a simple daybed with the materiality of an elegant and perfectly crafted piece of furniture in the tradition of modernism. The adjustment mechanism of the daybed and the cross-section of the legs are inspired by the classic designs of Charlotte Perriand and Eileen Gray, by their modernity and preciseness, and congenially fit in with the ClassiCon collection.

Ulisse is a daybed that becomes a symbol for relaxing and comfortable, and with its large, free-stretched reclining surface, almost looks like a pictogram of a daybed. In its simple, symbolic elegance, the daybed arouses associations with archaic furniture of African or Japanese origin that were sources of inspiration for many designers of modernism. Ulisse is thus much more than a purely functional piece of furniture: it becomes an expression of the connection between modernism and the present, a symbol for a moment of rest and luxury.
