Grow Together–Flexible Cot Bed & Parents’ Table / Furniture

Grow Together–Flexible Cot Bed & Parents’ Table
Grow Together–Flexible Cot Bed & Parents’ Table

Traditional cot bed is a baby furniture that cannot be used by adults. When the baby grows up, the cot bed has to be removed from the house, generating waste of resources. As a flexible and sustainable furniture, “Grow Together” transforms the cot bed into a functional table ideal for parents and child. The side bars of the cot bed are modular panels that can be reassembled as under-table storage and versatile board for items organization or display. Maximize table space by adding shelves and containers to the versatile board.
