What tools do I need to assemble my Siebenschläfer?
None! The Siebenschläfer is based on a halved joint construction principle which allow sit to be assembled without tools.
Do I have to order the Moormann slatted mattress support with the Siebenschläfer?
No. The optional Moormann slatted mattress support can be ordered, however any other mattress support can also be used. Important to note is that the distance between the slatted mattress support frame and the top of the bed frame is 11.5 cms. For beds up to 1.40 m wide Moormann deliver one slatted mattress support, for Siebenschläfer beds 1.60 and wider two slatted mattress supports are required.
Why does the Siebenschläfer surface occasionally show inconsistencies?
Film protected FU (plywood, birch) is a high value industrially produced material. The film coating process can lead to visible alteration sin colour, structure and/or small scratches. In addition in the internal construction elements, for example, central support or slatted mattress support physical features such as knots and knot holes may be present. These are normal and in no way affect the quality of the wood or the physical stability of the object.
There are, it is fair to say, very few truly individual contemporary bed designs. Siebenschläfer from Moormann is one of them. Designed in 2007 by Christoffer Martens the Siebenschläfer is based on halved joint construction principle which means that it is 100% wood - no screws, no nails, just wood. The individual components of the Siebenschläfer can be effortlessly and tool-free connected making the Siebenschläfer not only environmentally responsible but also optimal for today's increasingly mobile society. The Moormann bed is crafted from birch plywood and is available with or without headboard,
in a range of sizes and 3 colours. In addition an accompanying shelf is available, perfect for books, alarm clocks and the like. Radiating the characteristic warmth of wood the clear, even design positively invites the user to peaceful sleep. And juries to present it with awards. In addition to winning the Internationalen Designpreis Baden-Württemberg in and the Deutschen Designer Club's Gute Gestaltung Preis 2009, in 2010 the Siebenschläfer was nominated for the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.
The Siebenschläfer is produced by German manufacturer Moormann. Some 90% of Moormann furniture is produced with a 30 km radius of the company's base in Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria. Moormann's close co-operation with local craftsmen begins with the production of prototypes and continues throughout the product development stages up to final production and beyond. Co-operations which ensure a continuous quality throughout the Moormann programme. The Moormann Siebenschläfer is constructed from FSC certified Swedish birch plywood and is available in red, white or black. Beyond the local production and sustainably sourcing the Moormann Siebenschläfer shows its respect for the environment through its lack of synthetic components and a construction system which negates the need for screws, nails and similar.

Based in Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria, the former one man show has grown to a company employing some 20 staff and represented globally. In addition to contemporary design objects united by their easy functionality, and a little humour, the Moormann programme is also united by the fact that
wherever possible the products are manufactured by small and medium sized businesses in the near vicinity of the firms Aschau base, including workshops employing the local handicapped. In addition to housing the Moormann HQ, Aschau im Chiemgau is also home to the Hotel Berge, a hotel by and with Moormann and which positively lives the Moormann flair.

...The bed “Siebenschläfer” from the Moormann (Design: Christoffer Martens, 2007) is beloved for the simplicity with which it can be constructed... For, implausible as it seems, the carpentry firm who prepare the Siebenschläfer frames for Moorman really did misinterpret the plans...
