Armchair Bed

What: This is a comfortable armchair that easily unfolds into a one-person bed designed for open spaces.

Why: A lot of armchair beds or sofa beds are placed in an open space or a space which is not a bedroom. When unfolded these beds offer no protection or privacy.

How: When used as a bed, the shell of this chair creates a little nook, offering the user some privacy. The chair unfolds very easily in just two steps and could be used in a living room, a hotel room or public areas such as airport lounges, where people want to take a nap. A drawer in the back can store a blanket.
