Murphy's Law

Flashback to the early 1900s: After trying to woo an opera singer, but having to abide by the strict moral code of a woman entering a man's bedroom, William Lawrence Murphy invented the Murphy Bed, a bed that is attached at one side to store against a wall or inside of a closet or cabinet. With this clever invention, he was able to convert his bedroom into a parlor, which then allowed Murphy to entertain his guests (and get the girl?). Jet back to the modern world where these space-saving folding saviors have been a go-to fixture in small living areas across the globe. Click on the slideshow to view our five fold-down bed finds sourced from the Dwell archives.

ABCs of Bathroom Design with the Brothers Sieger

At Duravit's biennial conference Duravit Design Days, we had the opportunity to chat with two of Germany's hardest-working design firms, Sieger Design. The principals and brothers Michael and Christian Sieger, took over the family business from their father, a self-employed architect who first started designing for yachts and motorboats. In the 1980s Sieger Design began working first with Dornbracht, then with Duravit, giving them a virtual monopoly on German bathroom product design. The brothers are nattily dressed, and their exuberant design is evidenced by their studio's headquarters: a castle with a moat. (Sadly, we did not get to visit.)
