Chair a Bed / Chair

Chair a Bed
Chair a Bed

Most people need an extra bed but it is sometimes difficult to find the space. Sofa-beds are often clumsy and big.
My ambition was to design a chair that could be used as a bed as well as being elegant and simple.
The result was “Chair a Bed” – a neat and stylish chair hiding a number of surprises.
The locking pins at the front and in the back keep the construction together. By removing the pins the chair can be unfolded and converted into a bed. When the back is lowered you will find the hidden mattress. By also lowering the front section the chair converts into a complete bed.
