You may remember the Sleep (Less) Rough bed in issue 10 of The Pavement
. We featured the work of the designer Tom Goodfellow, who had designed a folding bed for those who sleep out.
The concept behind the bed was based on the insulation that it gives from the ground, which is a great help in keeping warm at night. When we asked him about the design that ensures this, he told us: "It has been designed to be folded up and portable for a person's nomadic lifestyle and that's all."
But the beds have not been properly 'field tested', and for that the designer has come to us. We have two no-frills Sleep (Less) Rough beds to test, and we're looking for two readers who're sleeping out to test them. So if you fancy trying the bed out for a fortnight, especially with the nights drawing in, get in touch with us at our usual address. Go on - be a guinea pig.
