Pil-low

By Redesign

While designing the Pil-low, we focused our research on the most effective transformation from a sofa into a bed. This transformation functions like a simple spatial puzzle. In the closed position, between the volume of the seat and the backrest, there is a hard triangular pillow that adds to the quality of sitting. The sofa opens when entirely lifted forward and rotated around the sub-construction, hiding space for storing bed linen. The backrest is then rotated backwards and the emerging gap is used for storing the pillow. With this system, all elements of the sofa are put to use as an expanded sleeping platform. Opening and closing of the sofa is optimized without a single superfluous element: all elements fall into their place. This ingenious transformer is marked with precise geometry and remarkable presence with playful colours of stitching and legs.
