Seemingly floating the sleeping plain is held by the wooden rods and stainless steel bows. The bows themselves rest in oak cones.
This progressive bedding doesn't inhibit or obstruct the movements of the lying or loving, it rather balances them and carries them to rest.
The construction of the bed is based on the idea of the central point of rest to which everything leads in a pliable and soft way.
The stainless steel bows connect the conical lumbers and create a furniture item with sculptural character.
The bed can be dismantled into several parts. The separate parts of float also form the transportation case. You couldn't be more ecological!
Innovation till the tips of your toes: For the connection between the wooden rods and the steel bows simple and effective elements have been developed.
The suspended platform moves when you move. The balancing effect of float for those who lie on it is hard to put into words. People lying on the suspended platform are lead to their own center. The smooth path to dormancy is like a foretaste of the subsequent rest. The movements are not obstructed but balanced out smoothly.
For babies the calming effect of the rocking cradle is well known. Experts suppose it is due to recalling the womb. For adults this effect is imitated with waterbeds which have well known drawbacks (orthopedics, climate, electric fields and currents, weight). The float bed offers this comfort in a pleasing and functional way.
Max Longin did not only design and develop the concept of the float bed, still every piece is handmade and handfinished mainly by himself. Therefor a delivery time of approximately 8 weeks has to be accepted to achieve the float beds superior quality.
Each of the stainless steel ropes bears about 1.200 kg (2.645 lbs) static. Such a traction would occur when a weight of about 2.300 kg (over 5.000 lbs) would be evenly spread over the platform.
When you order a float bed please be aware that float is delivered as a transport-case including a detailed assembly instruction (in English and/or German) and all necessary premium quality tools. The first-time assembly for a skillful person takes approximately 90 minutes. Float is assembled upside down. For turning around the assembled bed the help of a second person is needed. If you prefer an assembly service please ask for it in your inquiry.
Normally the mattress is not included when you order a float bed. For the float bed I recommend Talalay latex mattresses. If you want a mattress delivered with your float bed please mention it in your inquiry. Then a premium Talalay will be offered together with the bed.
float is available for 3 standard mattress sizes:
- float 16: 200 cm × 160 cm (78¾″ × 63″)
- float ks: 214 cm × 182 cm (84″ × 72″, i.e. California King size)
- float 20: 200 cm × 200 cm (78¾″ × 78¾″) (please note: float 20 has longer delivery time)
The size of an assembled float bed depends on the mattress size you choose. You'll get the over-all size when you add 36 cm (14″) to both dimensions of the mattress size, e.g. float 16 has a mattress size of 200 cm × 160 cm (78¾″ × 63″), what results in an over-all size of 236 cm × 196 cm (92¾″ × 77″)
As standards you can choose from the following hardwoods: ash, beech, cherry, elm, maple, oak or walnut. If you prefer other (sustainable) timbers ask for your favorite timber in your inquiry. If the wood is available a float bed in your favorite timber can be manufactured!
The finishing used is a special oil with paraffin components. The rods are oiled and polished 3 times what results in a very resistant semi gloss surface with a woodenly haptic.
