Design Doshi & Levien, 2008
Solid lacquered beech, polyurethane foam, upholstery
Made in Italy by Moroso

Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien have this to say about their new design: "We designed a new daybed, called Princess, with layers of mattresses. The top mattress is covered with a composition of different objects and since they draw inspiration from a modern princess they're embroidered in gold and silver". The Princess version, so called for the Princess and the Pea fairytale, has 6 or 11 mattresses one of top of the other with various colored edges.

Nipa Doshi was born in 1971 into a Gujarati family of Mumbai. She graduated from the Royal College of Art, London and soon returned to India to work with local craftspeople. After a short stay she went back to London where she met Jonathan Levien, a Scot who had recently finished his master's in furniture design at the Royal College. The synergy between Nipa and Jonathan clicked immediately; in fact they set up Doshi Levien in 2000 and got married. The combination of the two cultures and creativities generated a very special, innovative design concept. Nipa's is heavily influenced by the visual culture and materials of India, Jonathan's is rooted in industrial design. Together, their work celebrates cultural hybridism and explores a combination of technology, narration and industrial & craft design.
