Berberé Raffaella Mangiarotti / 2022

A bed for the relaxation of our furry friends, both at home and on the go. Berberé is the dog bed designed by Raffaella Mangiarotti for Opinion Ciatti which, with this brand new product, enters the world of pet furniture for the first time. Conceived to combine convenience and comfort, this portable dog bed is easy to carry and enriched by refined details, also thanks to the particular materials selected. Berberé evokes exotic travel atmospheres and is aimed at all those animal lovers who are also passionate about design and like to travel with comfort and style. 

Like the mix of intensely flavoured spices that enriches the dishes of North African cuisine, from which Berberé takes its name, the dog bed successfully blends the ‘flavours’ of different materials: the ash wood of the structure is skilfully combined with the leather of the bed, while the mattress and the bag are made of a practical washable fabric.

In designing this dog bed, Raffaella Mangiarotti was inspired by camping beds, and used a system of joints to fix hammock and legs with a few simple gestures and no need for glue or screws. The bed’s leather surface gives a refined look to this piece of furniture that blends naturally into any environment, rejecting stylistic constraints while following instead its absolute need for freedom and recreating the feeling of home in all-new contexts. Complementing the structure, the washable, double-sided and two-colour padded mattress ensures greater comfort while enhancing the product’s aesthetics.
