Ida / The collapsible guest bed


„Ida“ is the ideal solution for small apartments, where an extra bed is occasionally needed. When closed, „Ida“ not take up much space and can be used as a seat or as a storage surface. In order to convert the piece of furniture into a bed, the mattress is rolled out from the bottom compartment, the valves are opened and after three minutes the bed is ready for the guest. Blanket and pillow are stored in the upper compartment. By operating a ratch, the mattress is rolled back and compactly redeposited. The automatically inflatable mattress inflates in only three minutes to a thickness of 10 cm.Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcaKm2FDGOk
