Let There Be Light

One of the most important attributes of a great livable space is access to natural light. A studio remodel in Manhattan opens the area and lets in light by relocating an obtrusive loft bed in the middle of the apartment and places it to the back. The owner wanted to maintain a raised sleeping loft so the designer, Aaron Korntreger, segmented the apartment into three areas, all varying at different heights: entry/eat-in kitchen, living room platform, and semi-private bed area. The living room contains floor to ceiling cabinet storage with a hidden office. The loft bed is raised 42 inches from the floor to provide a differentiation of space and provide much needed storage underneath. Click the pictures below to see before and after pics of the remodel

    Anybody have any information on the aluminium wall-mounted storage system at the foot of the bed?
