SpaceSaver / Sofa and bed


With the boost of population and housing price, increasing number of people choose to live in humble abodes. With only a toilet and a bed, these abodes is rather small but people living in it are longing for colorful life. They may feel annoyed because of the lack of space when guests visit.

Our design aims at helping those who live in humble abodes make full use of limited space. It consists of a chair and a bed. When there are guests, the chair could be extended for multi-users. Meanwhile, the bed can be changed into a sofa and an end table through folding.
