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.
