There’s a reason multifunctional furniture is so popular – convertible cribs that turn into twin-size beds, sleeper sofas that fold out to accommodate guests, even storage ottomans that hide away our clutter – they all make some facet of life easier. Altezza, an adaptable space by Belgian designer Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte, was created to be the central piece in a growing child’s bedroom with a pinewood frame, four ladders, and three lengths of Batyline fabric that can be reconfigured again and again.
Meant to foster a strong imagination in a nurturing, open environment, Altezza brings the Montessori teaching philosophy of allowing unique personalities to evolve freely front and center. Much more than a traditional bed, it’s adaptable and ready to age along with your children stage by stage, daydream by daydream.
