Furniture that transforms, making them perfect for maximizing small minimal spaces!
Finding a spacious apartment in our urban cities is a rarity! And if you managed to collect one, then you are an exception and a lucky one! Because let’s be honest, our modern apartments can be quite cramped. Space constraint is a major problem, and we often find ourselves crushing our own belongings. It is the ultimate test of our ability to maneuver. However, transformative furniture designs are an ingenious solution to this problem of space constraints. And we’ve curated a collection of super functional, space-saving furniture that not only promises to transform, but also transform your living space! From robotic furniture that transforms from a bed into a home office to a desk that can transform into a lounge chair – these innovative furniture designs promise to be the best investments of 2021!
Sustainable furniture design studio Ori adds a WFH device called Cloud Bed to the mix, merging a desk and office setup with a cantilevered loft bed that descends to the floor to really refine the mutability of working from home. In its initial form, the Cloud Bed includes a desk and a table under a loft bed. Designed for hospitality interiors and personal spaces, this space-saving home work solution has been designed to cover a small footprint inside the home. UL Certified to ensure the bed stays elevated and close to the ceiling during working hours, the desk folds into itself, merging with the floor as the bed descends from its elevated position. While it can be tempting to climb up the top of the bunk bed and sleep at such a high height, the Cloud Bed, Table Edition has an internal mechanism that lowers the bed to the floor after the day’s work is over. With the push of a button, the mattress and wooden bed frame lower from its raised post as the desk folds down to the floor.
Finland has long been a proponent of flexible working conditions for quite some time now, and proof of this is that it tops the rankings in the UN’s annual World Happiness Report. Over time, the country has evolved its remote working methodology in the form of smart interior design. This ingenious home office called “sshhh 3” by Evävaara Design is the perfect example. The Finnish expert in functional furniture has launched its mobile workstation design which keeps ergonomics and sound insulation at the forefront. It’s like your portable work-from-home setup that can move to any area of the house in an instant. When you want to end the day, close the business and it presents itself as a minimalist cabinet without any visual asymmetry.
To make you feel like you’re working from the office while working from home, designer Andrew Mangelsdorf created the Commute chair. The name of Ride Chair may give you the idea that it helps you recreate the trip (maybe it’s a variation of Floo Powder that carries you sitting in place), it literally helps create a barrier between your home and your workspace. Designing a home office is a luxury not everyone can afford – we often turn our bedroom into a study room and the dining table into an office for the day. Commute allows you to mentally transform yourself by pulling up the partitions of this ingenious chair. The chair also comes with several accessories like a swivel top and table lamp – all integrated to create the perfect desk in the form of a simple chair. The chair also has USB ports and deep pockets to hold all your knickknacks you need while on the job.
Clean lines and rotating legs – these are the fundamentals on which the Mubic table works its magic – transforming from a coffee table into a dining table for 2, 4 and even 6 people without taking it apart. Transforming your furniture doesn’t have to be like putting together a complicated jigsaw box; rather, it should involve an intuitive process that makes sense. The table legs were joined in a custom-designed piece, which Katalin said was the most difficult aspect of the table design. This part allows the feet to rotate in different directions while maintaining the stability of the design.
‘Chaise Renversée’ is a desk that can also be transformed into a lounge chair by the famous French architect Pierre-Louis Gerlier. The literal translation of Chaise Renversée is “chaise reversed”, I like the simplicity with which the French put everything. Since we are all locked in our homes, we are constantly finding ways to optimize space. Especially if you live in a city, you are likely to have everyday items that are flexible so that you have a functional space. Our current situation and the need to be flexible in a small space is exactly what inspired Gerlier to design the Upturned Chair. It’s the perfect blend of working from home and Netflix from home in one modern piece of furniture, it offers a stable table for working and can then transform into a “Chaise Lounge” when you want to relax.
While they may visually resemble those from IKEA at first glance, these wooden chairs actually work with interior decors that are too different from regular patio seating. They are more stylish and can be used in any room / interior. The first wooden chair has strings which form the seat and back, it may make you doubt the comfort but the strings act like fabric and contour your body for maximum comfort. The tension of the strings also ensures that you are well supported. The second chair is like a classic window transformed into a chair with a single swivel movement. Because it is a smooth and singular vertical board when closed, it is easier to stack / store. Another favorite of this furniture line is the folding table with storage, it is ideal for small urban apartments or for a kid-friendly bedroom to keep things tidy and tidy.
BeYou is a ‘transforming chair that adapts to you’, which means that whatever seating position calls your name, BeYou will adapt accordingly. The spirit of this chair and what makes it so special is that it is by no means fixed, it was designed to be constantly evolving to meet your growing needs. The convertible chair is padded with a soft, durable fabric that wraps over a double layer of foam for a bouncy, snug seat. Oak veneer covers the exterior parts of BeYou so that the chair adapts not only to your body, but also to your bedroom and office, or wherever you choose to position your BeYou chair. The quick-release hinges that change the positions and presentation of the chair are user-friendly as they operate through simple and intuitive mechanical movements.
The Transformer Couch takes a Lego / Minecraft approach to furniture. Everything is centered around a “sofa block” that can be extended widthwise to create a sofa that can accommodate more people, or lengthwise to allow you to fully stretch your legs. The sofa can be split in half, ranging from one long unit to two smaller ones, or even several single seater sofas and ottomans, or just about any arrangement you want. You don’t really buy the Transformer Couch as is, you buy modular arrangements and arrange them however you see fit, adding armrests or backs when you want them, and removing them when you don’t. It’s like IKEA, except with a LOT more creative freedom.
Living up to the demand, a South Korean designer came up with the 120 series furniture. While we want this piece of furniture to be able to be used in 120 ways, the name is a clever play on the size of the moving boxes (120cm³). ). Each model in this series can fit in a shipping carton (120 cc) without tedious disassembly or reassembly in the new location. Moving is a tedious task; if you have moved from one community to another or from one city to another, you will know what I mean. Many city dwellers sell off their furniture at knockdown prices because transporting bulky furniture is almost impossible. One of the solutions of the furniture industry is the introduction of transformative and space-saving designs.
