Multi-Functional Design Transforms Desk Into Bed

Both a bed and a desk, this transformable piece of furniture by designer Mira Schrder elegantly solves the common problem of too little space. By providing an environment for two separate functions, work and sleep, the design optimizes the space available. With the push of one button, the desktop unlocks from the frame and flips over to become a single bed.

As a desk, the piece provides an enviable amount of clutter-free surface area. There is plenty of room to spread out, as well as additional storage in the shelves and drawers on the sides. The concept of the workbed is not new, but few have been so beautifully designed and aesthetically pleasing. This would be perfect for a small apartment in the city.
