Elegantly minimal

It takes a skilled designer to make a metal bed look elegant rather than institutional, but Luciano Bertoncini has met the task. The Italian maestro — who first came to prominence when the legendary Joe Colombo included one of his pieces in a catalog — designed the streamlined Min Bed (2003) with thoughtful details such as curved edges and corners that protect shins and toes. The slat platform provides constant ventilation for a mattress (crucial for memory foam), while the sleek form also maximizes space under the bed, for those who use that area for storage. (Who, me?) No wonder the Min Bed has been a best-seller since its debut. Made in Italy.

Luciano Bertoncini

Since 1958, Luciano Bertoncini has been happily helping to create Italy’s design scene. Some say that Bertoncini, a man who eschews the spotlight, hasn’t received due credit for the influence he’s had on contemporary European modernism. But that doesn’t seem to bother him. “Bertoncini is neither envious nor bitter,” says Virginio Briatore in the introduction to Bertoncini’s 1999 retrospective.

Troubling Design Flaw
I am a fan of DWR and bought the Min bed with walnut headboard. The space between the mattress and the headboard is too wide such that my pillows sink into that space. Very frustrating and not what I would expect from a DWR piece of furniture. I try to accommodate by folding one of my pillows in half to the the space, but really? That should not be necessary for a DWR piece of which I have many. Other than that, love the look!

Bellissima!
Purchased the King size Min Bed in white, no headboard, in early 2018. For 2+ years it has contributed to making our bedroom more tranquil.

When we decided to move from a traditional queen frame to a king, I was concerned about visually overpowering our modest master bedroom. The minimal, lower design works well but takes some consideration when selecting bedding to prevent it from touching the floor.

In response to concerns from other reviews:
I keep an eye on the legs at the foot in fear of stubbing a toe. No injuring to date.
The wooden slats have stayed in place - not sure how they could come out after proper assembly.
At the time of purchase, wife wanted the headboard, but I was concerned that it would take up additional floor space and the mounting looked a little flimsy. I checked with DWR and they offered to sell the headboard separately if I wanted to add it later -thanks DWR! We don't sit up in bed much and haven't missed a headboard.

FYI, the bottom of the frame is a great location to add a couple Hue strip lights. The strip lights face down and add a nice not-too-harsh glow for waking up to.

Highly recommended!

Nice clean look but will need to be replaced
Love the look of the walnut headboard min king bed but there are two problems I see... there is too much of a gap between the mattress and headboard so pillows fall in between + after having it for about 6 months, the bed started to squeak. Just getting into the bed it squeaks. Have always had great quality with DWR but unhappy with this purchase.

Toe Stubbing Risk
Love the look, but it has a dangerous design flaw. You can stub your inner toe on the bed’s leg by straddling the thin edge of the leg, which risks spraining your toes. I had to see a doctor after the accident and thankfully nothing was broken. Very painful though. I’ve had to tape bubble wrap around the leg, which ruins the sleek look. I’m in a tight space so the foot of the bed is along the room’s entrance. Maybe this wouldn’t be as much of an issue in a bigger room. Otherwise, I love the bed. I’d like to also get the headboard as it’s hard to read in bed without tons of firm pillows going both behind and above the bed’s head.

Wonderful bed
This has been my son's bed for 10 years. It is sturdy, well made, and we love it. I wish that DWR would reintroduce the bed in the vibrant colors they once carried. My son's bed is in the green that used to be carried and is perfect for a child's room or for those with an affinity for space age furniture.

Looks good but has a serious design flaw
I bought this bed for my daughter and soon she started telling me that the wooden slats holding up her mattress were moving around inside the rubber inserts and popping out. When I called the store, they proposed to sell me another set of rubber inserts, which seemed ridiculous, given that the problem was clearly a design flaw. Eventually I put the bed in storage, thinking I'd solve the problem at another time. I am disappointed that the only solution DWR came up with was to sell me another set of a part that was poorly constructed in the first place.
