Are Slats Under a Mattress a Necessity?

Are Slats Under a Mattress a Necessity?

Q: I am looking for a new bed for my new Brooklyn loft. I like the simplicity of the Mies platform bed in tiger mahogany from Charles P. Rogers. Has anyone had any experience with this or other beds from Charles P. Rogers? This bed's platform surface is made up of four upholstered deck inserts rather than slats. Is that a bad idea? Are slats absolutely necessary to let the bottom of the mattress breathe?
