The architect describes it:

Levitation. This large "love bed" seems to float over a sleeping baby's room. The imposing slab of fir plywood is molded to the sinuous curves of its tubular steel support. These one hundred fifty square feet are simply walking on air, gently illuminated by an opalescent storage wall and luminous bricks.
