Ingenious Desk Converts into Cozy Bed for Office Napping

Many of us have moments where we want to crawl under our desk and take a nap. If you've ever considered putting a pillow next to your office chair, then Studio NL's convertible table was created with you in mind. Above, the lacquered wood desktop offers ample space for your computer and other supplies. Below, its sides fold out and reveal a cushy nook that's perfect for a quick siesta, or a few hours of sleep. The Greece-based studio calls their design 1.6 S.M. of Life based on its dimensions, which are two meters long and 0.8 meters wide.

The innovative desk has brilliantly made the space below as bed-like as possible. A white leather mattress lines the base, while one side panel opens at an angle and is perfect for a headrest. But even if you're sleeping, the table can still be of use. Studio NL added a sliding mechanism to its desktop, which pushes the surface away from the bed and allows someone to sit and work at the same time.

Sadly, the desk seen here is a prototype, and there's no word yet on availability or pricing.
