Sleep Less Rough tests

May 20 2009
Do you want to ‘road test‘ Tom Goodfellow‘s folding bed? 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.
