Vintage Bunk Bed and Desk

rappelkiste bunk bed Luigi Colani Rappelkiste

One of the coolest fur­ni­ture designs of all time! Designed in 1975 by Luigi Colani for the Ger­man com­pany Elbro, “Rap­pelk­iste” is made from beech and ply­wood. I espe­cially love the small closet pan­eled with chalk­board. Wow!

UPDATE: I found another pic­ture of this rar­ity, this time in use (ok, so it’s a lit­tle staged), pic­tured above.

    I seri­ously love this. I want to put two together back-to-back. But it would prob­a­bly cost my children’s col­lage education.

    This might be the coolest ever. My son will be mov­ing into his own room (shares with his sis­ter) in the next year or so, and it will be tiny, so I’m always look­ing for cool ideas about how to max­i­mize the space. This may be it! Thanks!

    This bed is pretty rare, going for around $6k when it shows up at auc­tion (few and far between). Look up HABA bunk beds, they have a few inter­est­ing mod­els!
    Thanks,Rachel
