product design


The transformation of functions of seating and sleeping is achieved by a single-movement rotation of the backrest by 180º. In the upright position the backrest and it's formal sibling, the rear part of the seat, unite in a single, U shaped volume embracing the seat. The rotation, in which the backrest rotates utilizing a specially fabricated two axe hinge, results in a flat surface mattress, an enclosure of two identical parts around the core. The product was awarded Red Dot design award.
