"La Montana Rusa" bed was designed by Los Carpinteros, a trio of Cuban designers described as "artisans and skilled laborers interested in the intersection between art and society...merges architecture, design, and sculpture in unexpected and often humorous ways. They create installations and drawings which negotiate the space between the functional and the nonfunctional. The group's elegant and mordantly humorous sculptures, drawings, and installations draw their inspiration from the physical world — particularly that of furniture. Their carefully crafted works use humor to exploit a visual syntax that sets up contradictions among object and function as well as practicality and uselessness."

What, no inversions?

The freaking thing measures over 26' long by 14' wide by 8' tall. It's the world's first hyper-bed!
