A Desk That Transforms into a Bed

November 11, 2013

Spotted in the Berlin live-work apartment of Mira Schröder, exhibition designer for experimental design group BLESS: a piece of furniture that flips from spacious desk into an instant bed. The perfect solution for small, urban living, it’s also ideal for offering nap options in a work setting.

Above: The Workbed is part of BLESS’s No. 33 Artistcare collection; it stemmed from the desire to create a comfortable sleep and workspace in one. As Schröder explains, “BLESS is much more than a brand, it is a concept of life.”
