When I first saw the cocoon-like Lomme bed which debuted last week and made the rounds of the design blogs I had a few questions. Kath Stevens of the European Launch Pad was kind enough to answer my questions. The questions and answers follow below:
1)What is the frame composed of?
Lomme is made of GRP (Glass reinforced polymer). It is a hand laminated
process where the manufacturer uses glass fabric tissues in combination with
epoxy resin and a core material.
2) What size is it?
Height: 149.1 cm
Width: 212.8 cm
Length: 315.4 cm
3) Does it come in different sizes, can you use standard sheets?
It comes in one size, which is perfect for creating a space where one can
feel safely enclosed but at the same time it is very spacious.
Special round sheets and pillows can be ordered with Lomme.
5) How do the sound and color therapy systems work?
Lomme has a light system installed all around the pod, which includes
different colors from the spectrum which is navigated through color wheel.
Depending on requirements, the light can also be set to a specific color
and strength. This light color therapy is known to enhance the body's
energy centers and stimulate the healing process. Color has a profound
effect on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
In addition Lomme has and alarm clock installed which awakens one by
simulation of the sunrise - making waking up in the morning a pleasant start
to the day.
With the installed Ipod one can listen to relaxing sounds and guided
meditations. Certain sounds will be recommended for waking up and helping
with the process of falling asleep.
5) And the big one, the price?
