Be captivated by the interactive bedroom composition centred around the enchanting BYOBU Bed. Experience the embrace of unique spatial technology, cradling you in a realm inspired by serene landscapes of rolling hills, glaciers, forests, and coastlines. Every detail of the sculptural forms has been meticulously crafted to create a tranquil haven that transports you to a world of comfort and relaxation.

Pay homage to Asian heritage in the serene teahouse setting, where a misty mountainous scene unveils a carefully curated selection of furniture by Stellar Works.
