We know you guys are used to seeing out-of-the-ordinary furniture on Freshome and that this sofa may seem a bit “common” at first. But we really like it mostly due to its unusual system that allows it to transform into a bed. While most sofas open in front, “Vento” from Thomas Althaus has a system that can be referred to as modular. The user has flexibility in choosing how to arrange his bed. Moreover, once opened, this sofa can also offer storage space for books, CDs and other small objects. This is possible because of a special support that turns into a “night table” once the couch becomes a bed for two persons. Unlike the common sofas which can only be open all the way or stay compact, with this design an intermediate seating solution is possible (like the one in picture 4 for example). Have you seen this system before? –via
