Murphy bed in the office? Yes, from Transforms.

Recently, we wrote in what spaces our Smartbed Desk bed works. To mention that it goes not only to homes. That is why today a few words about how a folding bed works in commercial spaces. We will not only write about it, but also show. Thanks to our latest implementation: Smartbed V Sofa our retractable bed designed especially for the architectural office in Frankfurt.

A murphy bed for the office – and what for?

A murphy bed is a rational and functional solution for office spaces. It works in every small company that tends to work “after hours” – architectural studios, software mills, design offices. The opportunity to rest, when time and dates are chasing, will be appreciated by every employee who likes or has to work at night.

A retractable bed is also a convenient solution in companies whose employees operate in various places in the country and “fall” into the office once in a while. They are looking for accommodation as close to the company as possible. And thanks to the bed hidden in a wardrobe, standing e.g. in a conference room, the problem of accommodation is quickly and finally solved.

This is the function of the Smartbed V Sofa in a fully enclosed building, which was recently erected in an architectural studio in Frankfurt. Customer expectations were an interesting challenge for us. Bed in the closet to the conference room + very unusual building according to the author’s design + remote control of the bed.

Murphy bed for the remote control? – for whom?

The murphy bed for the remote control works when its everyday user is of small height, has limited mobility, is elderly or … is a person who values ​​comfort above average. The remote control mechanism is located in the back of the bed, with easy access to it (why it is important, about this in a moment) and discreetly – it remains invisible. The bed opens to the remote control, which means that it can happen by accidentally pressing a button when, for example, the remote control moves somewhere on the sofa. In order for the bed to not start to fall apart unexpectedly, special retarders were installed in its mechanism. There is time to react and find the pilot.

And what happens during a power failure? we hear this question very often. To avoid complications in such an uncomfortable situation, the remote control mechanism has built-in electric batteries that will allow the emergency closing or opening of the bed. Thanks to the easy access to the mechanism, the batteries can be changed quickly and efficiently.

The murphy bed for the office – details of the implementation

There are Transforms projects that are extremely close to us. Thanks to the unusual arrangement of space, colors, original ideas of customers. For the first time we were building a bed with buildings composed of cubic cabinets. In a variety of colors, each opened differently. With two types of fronts, mounted on or inside the housing. Cabinets give the impression of accidental “scattering” on the wall, however, creating a well-planned whole. The building ends with an asymmetrical, unusual opening cabinet ideally suited to the angle of the ceiling.

The whole is complemented by a quilted, intensely green sofa. And the bed. With backlight, remote control and comfortable Sembella Amber Dream mattress. Maximum use of space, multi-functionality and aesthetics. This is our view, this Frankfurt implementation.

Wallbed – a comfortable bed for two – Smartbed O Sofa

półkotapczan

Can a wall bed be a convenient bed for two? Definitely yes.

But for a comfortable double bed wallbed, the bed has been equipped with several basic features.

The ones that Smartbed O has (yes, we brag) – the bed opens horizontally with different mattress widths: 140/160/180.

What? Here are our insights on how to choose the best double wallbed for yourself.

WALL BED – QUALITY

  • bed mechanism – this is what should first of all pay attention to when choosing a half-wall. The Smartbed O Sofa mechanism consists of: a steel frame reinforced with eccentrics, automatically opened, self-leveling legs and gas cylinders with the function of gentle falling and braking, facilitating the opening and closing of the bed. This design guarantees trouble-free use for many years – covered by Transforms 10-year warranty.
  • ease of use – the bed mechanism described above allows you to quickly change the interior from day to night or vice versa. Closing or opening the bed takes only a few seconds. In addition, to make the bed safe when closed, additional safeguards are installed to the mechanism to keep the bed upright (visible in the photo)
  • solidity – multifunctional beds that should work well in everyday and long-term functioning should be solidly built. It is by definition a heavy piece of furniture – therefore the bed casing must be strong and durable. The Smartbed O body is made of 36mm thick furniture board. The front of the bed is made of 18 mm board. These dimensions differ from standard solutions on the market. But they are a conscious choice. The durability and stability of the bed requires such solutions.

WALL BED – FUNCTIONALITY

  • functionality – wall beds not only save space, but also add an extra dimension to it. Smartbed Ogives you the choice – a simple front or an additional sofa function – depending on who needs what and for which room.
  • multitude of solutions – a wall wall for two can be a simple piece of furniture integrated into the existing space. It can also be designed with functional buildings.
  • comfort – for a comfortable bed spread out, and a really comfortable sleep, we recommend the Smartbed O Sembella Amber Dream mattress.

WALL BED – STYLE

  • stylistic diversity – thanks to dozens of variants of finishing, Smartbed O can be adapted to any style of the room
  • coziness – after opening the bed for two, its additional advantage is the softly padded wall with a headboard giving a sense of intimacy and comfort.
  • facilities – additional lighting, electrical sockets, USB ports – are now standard in Transforms.

Before you decide, check if the wall wall you found has these functions, facilities and mechanisms.

Unusual bedroom arrangement – Smartbed V

 

łóżko w szafie

The arrangement of the bedroom in a high altitude depends primarily on two categories: it concerns trends in interior design and space that are available.

Therefore, most often in our recent projects are monochrome or subdued beds in cabinets, where white, gray, beige are dominant. Thanks to the rich finishing palette that it offers, the number of shades of gray, anthracite, beige, brown allows you to personalize each project, which makes it an arrangement different from everyone else.

We usually also work in small spaces

this is the idea behind us – to make small interiors as functional and adjustable as possible. Space saving, multifunctionality and reliability – have become our mission. Beds in the wardrobe perfectly fit into current architectural trends, in which individual rooms often combine both day and night functions at the same time.

But there are projects absolutely different from everyone

Thanks to them, we can implement bold concepts of our clients and at the same time show how big color and stylistic possibilities we operate. This was the case when ordering custom-made furniture for two boys – fans of the Legia-Warsaw sports club. Smartbed Twin children’s beds with buildings in the colors of the sports club stood in the bedroom, which was dominated by three colors: white, green and red. Thanks to the rich Transfoms offer, they had an additional function – a bunk bed with a desk, with a worktop length sufficient to work and study two children.

Our recent implementation of Smartbed V also belongs to such bold, unusual projects.

What makes this project stand out?

First, it is a design for a large bedroom.

Secondly, the colors and style that will be remembered for a long time.

The colorful existing interior has been supplemented with a bed in a Smartbed V wardrobe with built-in wardrobe functions.

It has space for a spacious wardrobe, wide comfortable drawers and shelves.

But what distinguishes this design are the finishes, to which we used rarely selected cladding in the color of wood and … gold.

All this is integrated into the black housing.

The headboard of the bed in the wardrobe with upholstery style refers to the suspended ceiling in triangles and the wallpaper pattern on the walls.

The bedroom arrangement, as you can see, can be truly unique. And fulfill even the wildest dreams of who will be in it

used every day.

Folding bed as modern guest room?

A retractable single or double bed is usually presented as an excellent alternative to traditional small bedroom beds.

It is also a good solution for studios – then it successfully replaces the lack of a separate bedroom.

But mentioning its advantages and multifunctionality, it is often forgotten that more or less often, we host family, friends and acquaintances.

Sometimes an announcement, sometimes unexpectedly. And then the eternal question arises: “Where will I put her / his / theirs?

The time when there were guest rooms in our homes – bedrooms is long gone. Today’s interior design focuses on the functionality and usability of existing space, which means that it is not necessarily great.

We blow a mattress, foam pad, sofa in the living room is a common ad hoc solution. But is it comfortable?

Even the most comfortable folding sofa with sleeping function, placed in the living room, does not provide a bit of intimacy, so needed for a good sleep.

And in most modern space solutions, the living space is designed as a free “open space” connecting the living room with the dining room, kitchen and, often, the corridor. So sleeping “corner in the living room” is not very comfortable solution for both the guest and the household members creeping on their fingers.

The vertically folding bed perfectly solves all these problems:

  • takes up little space – guarantees space saving
  • closed – on a daily basis it does not change the functionality of the living room, work room or even the dining room
  • adapts to the interior – the possibility of choosing a different bed size and housing composes the bed hidden in the wardrobe into the space in any style
  • completes the functionality of the space – in a version with a comfortable sofa guarantees comfortable relaxation during the day
  • provides a sense of intimacy – open for sleeping, thanks to the soft headrest, internal lighting, creates a miniature bedroom
  • its arrangement additionally allows the creation of a space to rest even for a “multi-night” guest
  • hides “guest linens” in its interior, saving space in the wardrobe, storage compartments and cupboards
  • it is easy to use – it opens or closes in just a few seconds
    Please look at our latest implementation:

We have designed the Smartbed V Sofa bed for a multifunctional living space where there is space for work, rest and daily activities.

A partition wall (120 cm) was used to set it up. And one of its sides is a wardrobe with sliding, mirrored walls.

Both in the day and night versions, the retractable bed does not interfere with the use of the wardrobe. Nor cluttering up the space.

What’s more, thanks to the sofa function, it adds additional functionality to the room – a place to rest during the day.

If this is the will of the household, it can fulfill the function of an additional, everyday bedroom.

Without losing the daily character of the interior.

And when guests arrive, it will provide them with a comfortable sleep and rest.

Bedroom to size and folding bed

When we dream of a bedroom to size, the Smartbed V Sofa Box folding bed is the perfect solution,.

Even in a several-meter interior designed for a night’s rest you can save a place, and even increase its functionality.

The most important is the layout of the space. Therefore, especially when arranging a small room, it is worth considering a design with furniture to size.

Then, every element necessary in the bedroom can be exactly adapted to each other and the room’s possibilities.

Usually, from the bedroom, we expect that there will be a place for a wardrobe, a bedside table, and of course a bed.

Most often double bed. This is the minimum necessary.

It would be great if there was still space to hide the bedding and place,

on which you can sit, for example during the morning dress.

Now, imagine that one piece of furniture is enough to meet all these expectations.

A piece of furniture that creates additional space in the living space.

How is this possible?

The folding bed with the Smartbed V Sofa Box is:

  • comfortable, fully functional double folding bed
  • wardrobe building that will accommodate clothing
  • fold-out comfortable sofa, which can be used freely after folding the bed
  • under the sofa (opening) there is a drawer for bedding

Ah, and there was to be a bedside table. Please look at the photos from our last implementation: it is!

Because the size of this bedroom is really small, it uses an interesting solution for the night table.

The SALICE shelf slides out of the closet and creates a place where you can put down your phone, book, cup of tea.

When it is not needed, it disappears in the building. And during the day it can be used as a small table for the sofa.

Yes, with this solution there is no place for a bedside lamp.

But it is not a need. Lighting the interior of the bed with LED lamps gives a warm, gentle, intimate light.

You can read, relax and talk with him.

Additional amenities of this project are:

  • USB sockets in the walls of the bed (shown in the pictures)
  • Push-pull doors that open after lightly pressing the cabinet’s wall
  • Amber Dream mattress – optimally adjusted for thickness, hardness and other parameters to the requirements of the vertical folding bed

A bed for a Single – Smartbed O

A bed for a single – the design has a new meaning.

In the past, a single couch has gone: narrow, often incoming, with a box for bedding under the mattress.

However, it is still on the bed, which must have its functions to a small extent

area of ​​the flat, with limited number of rooms.

What is the guiding principle when creating single beds?

Before you make the final decision, think about whether your potential bed is:

  • comfortable – sleep quality and convenience is a priority
  • save space – a small bedroom does not have to be cluttered with a large one
  • multifunctional – as found in the arrangement, when the living room also functions as a bedroom
  • modern – bad mattress, hard-working mechanisms, cheap solutions – will quickly bounce on your pocket
  • how many stylizations and solutions does the bed manufacturer offer you

If you care about all these aspects of the furniture, consider choosing a hide-and-seek bed horizontally.

Such as Smartbed O from Transforms. It meets all of these expectations and additionally:

  • has a 10-year operating warranty
  • has 10 days warranty on the quality of the cartridge used in ithas several dozen color versions of casings and soft elements
  • offers several versions of the program: from 90 cm up
  • picture of a multitude of building versions: from the bed itself to any other arrangement: libraries, wardrobes, shelves, lockers, etc.
  • has an additional option of expanding the bed with a comfortable sofa – and is functional in the living space
  • thanks to a multi-variant solution adapting to each stylization of the room
  • may have additional facilities: USB ports, electrical sockets, LED lighting, and even a program for remote opening
    But that’s not all. We have that the arrangement of the first apartment is no mean feat.Therefore, we use the system when ordering each of our beds.At the end will find out whether your bed for a single is all it can and offers?

Swivel hidden bed? Smartbed Twist


 

Multifunctional furniture can be not only functional, comfortable, modern. They can also be surprising.

A bed hidden behind the sofa, a bed with the function of a desk, a bed hidden behind the wardrobe door. Yes, these are standard solutions.

But what to do when we dream of a room with bookshelves, a place for a TV set, cabinets in a bookcase, and a bedroom at the same time?

And the space of the room is, as it happens in modern apartments, limited?

Transforms also fulfills such wishes. Therefore, the Smartbed beds offer a rotating bed.

How it’s working?

Smartbed Twist is a modern solution based on a vertical rotary mechanism.

The first step to change the arrangement of space is to turn the rack wall in a vertical position. The shelves hide inside the furniture and appear on the front

a folding frame with a double bed. The second step is identical to the traditional solution of beds hidden in the closet. The frame is lowered to a horizontal position and the bed is ready for use.

The bed structure is based on the standard Transforms solutions:

self-leveling automatically opening legs guarantee the stability of the structure
Gas shock absorbers allow light and gentle opening and closing of the bed
The steel frame on which the whole is made ensures the durability of the furniture
a wooden frame made of beech strips supports the Sembella spring mattress-foam mattress that is optimal for retractable beds
The whole structure is combined with special eccentrics, which are covered, like the entire mechanism of the bed, a 10-year guarantee of trouble-free use.

The front of the bed can be designed in any form of a rack with elements:

bookcases
shelves for accessories or decorations
space for a TV screen
shelves or drawers with a silent closing function.
Stylistics of the furniture, thanks to a wide range of colors (several dozen versions in the standard option), gives almost unlimited space for arranging the furniture in any style and character.

Wall bed – what to do with bedding?

Wall bed, although  it is known and present on the market for years, raise questions.

In conversations with Clients, one of the most common questions that is asked is:

“What to do with bedding?”

There are two solutions:

  • when ordering a hide-and-seek bed with a couch option, you can choose one that has a storage space for bedding. The Transforms offer includes the Smartbed V Sofa Box model. In it, in the base of the sofa there is a large storage that can be used to hide bedding. But it is not really necessary. This space can be used to store other things.
    Why?
  • every bed hidden in the wardrobe from Transforms has a belt system in its standard equipment. They are placed in two places of the bed and serve just to hold the bedding. Their use is easy and comfortable. A small clasp placed on each of them allows you to quickly “stretch” the bed. Belts keep the bedding in place, and it takes a few seconds to unfasten them. Before sleeping, the belts can be hidden under the mattress. They remain invisible and imperceptible to the user. A nice addition is the fact that the color of the belts is matched to the color of the bed.

 

That’s how the problem with the quilt, the bedspread is solved. And what about pillows?

Pillows remain where we put them. When closing and opening the beds, they hide in the space between the headboard and the mattress, which effectively holds them and does not require them to be fastened.

The choice of bed type depends entirely on the client’s idea and needs. Lashing straps are installed in all Transforms bed models.

How the belt system looks like can be seen in the pictures from our latest implementation.

Here is the Smartbed V Sofa mattress 140×200, in soft pastel colors.

  • housing – Egger Len Beige ST10
  • front of the bed – Kronospan 8685 Snow White
  • edge handle – white
  • sofa – Claude 03 fabric
