Metal bunk beds – Smartbed Twin

Metal bunk beds are a good alternative to their classic wooden wooden counterparts. And they are more and more often chosen as their replacements in the arrangement of modern interiors. Thanks to the innovative design, they allow you to go further and close the entire piece of furniture in the closet. Exactly as our patented Smartbed Twin does. That is why today a few words about how the metal bunk bed is constructed and how the mechanism that folds it to the wall works.

Metal bunk beds – how does it work?

The bunk bed as smart bed is two beds in a casing based on a solid steel frame joined with eccentrics, which guarantee the stability and durability of the whole furniture. Thanks to two independently operating opening mechanisms, each of the beds separately can be in any position. It is a very convenient solution for those who rest at different times and in a solution when the lower bed has an additional desk function – Smartbed Single.

The mechanisms themselves have a system of gas actuators and retarders. Thanks to their use, the beds open easily and quickly. The operation of the bottom bed is quite obvious – when opening and closing the legs are automatically extended and retracted, and the bed slowly, without using force, after opening a distance of several centimeters, falls gently on its own. The upper bed works similarly, however, the question remains as to the ladder and safeguards against falling out of bed. The ladder is an independent element of the furniture and needs to be set aside (it is light and takes up very little space), and the protective barriers automatically close and rest on the mattress. The whole structure is hidden in a casing made of MDF boards with increased thickness parameters and is so trouble-free that Transforms covered its operation with a 10-year warranty.

Metal bunk beds – advantages

The undeniable advantage of bunk beds Smartbed Twin is space saving. When folded, the furniture takes only 40 cm in width of the room. Everything thanks to the steel structure used in the construction. This is an advantage and a possibility of solutions that no wooden bunk bed can boast. Steel finishes in the open bed version do not take up much space visually either. The whole structure is light, modern and at the same time very solid. Although the illustrations from our latest implementation do not see this, once the mattresses are put in the beds, bedding straps will be installed. Thanks to this, the beds do not need to be made, nor is any additional bedding box needed.

Smartbed Twin is a bed model that adapts to the needs of the interior and users. It can be a separate piece of furniture or be part of a larger wall structure. Thanks to the wide range of colors in the housings and headboards, each of the beds can have a different color or create a uniform whole. Our solution is often chosen for apartments with a small area. For children’s, youth and even utility rooms. Rooms and bed & breakfast are usually small premises, in which every centimeter of free space counts.

Here is an example of a wall unit with a fully recess bed, in a living room open to all interiors. As you can see in the pictures, the wall unit stood in a small apartment, whose main space combines day and night functions. Space without space for a separate bedroom, and yet thanks to the recess separating the living room from the hallway, it was possible to create an arrangement that will allow you to rest comfortably at any time. Both on the sofa and on the bed. Full wall installation saves additional space and makes the most of the recess space. Book shelves, drawers, storage compartments not necessarily used often, but needed at the top of the furniture. A characteristic element of the finish of this arrangement is the headrest, which occupies only 1/3 of the back surface of the bed. And last but not least, a shelf on the front of the bed, above the sofa. A great place to display decorations that are safely hidden when opening the bed underneath.

And shelves mounted at the height of the sofa in the evening and at night serve as bedside tables. Thanks to this solution, we don’t lose unnecessary centimeters or meters and keep the room spacious.

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.
