This Daybed (2004) was designed “to be seen in the round,” says Craig Bassam, by which he means that it can be seen and used from all sides. Such an approach isn’t surprising from a design team living in a glass house where furniture is visible from every angle, whether you’re inside or out. The house is the work of Philip Johnson, the architect who designed the Glass House for his own private residence in New Canaan, Connecticut. To see how seamlessly this Daybed (and all the furniture BassamFellows has created) works in a space designed by the iconic Johnson makes it very clear that these are the next icons – destined to become highly collectible. Bassam is an architect whose career started with Bruce Eeles, a disciple of Marcel Breuer. His partner, Scott Fellows, is a Harvard MBA who transformed the Swiss firm Bally. Together they are BassamFellows, described as “the design world’s A-team” by The Times of London. This fully handcrafted Daybed is made of solid American black walnut that is sustainably and locally harvested. The leather cushions are hand-stitched with inverted seams; the backrest adjusts to three positions. Made in U.S.A.
