André (Dick) Cordemeyer (1924-1998) was born in Bussum. He studied mechanical engineering at the HTS in Amsterdam. He started his career as a draftsman constructor. In 1952, bed manufacturer Auping hired him as a company technician. His design for the Cleopatra bed was taken into production on the condition that De Bijenkorf would have exclusive rights. Cordemeyer focused more on design work and started studying Industrial Design. In 1954 he resigned from Auping to work as a freelance Industrial designer. In the same year he became a member of the Industrial Designers Circle (KIO) in The Hague. He had a management position there for a long time. He made many important contacts there, including Wim Rietveld. Cordemeyer lived in Apeldoorn in a house designed by Gerrit Rietveld. Cordemeyer himself designed the extension, taking into account the rest of the design. Cordemeyer then designed other houses in Apeldoorn and Veendam.

If required we can deliver the daybed(s) fully restored with new paint, without damage to the big Auping logo.
