A folding bed prototype
We live more compactly, with fewer walls and doors. Sleeping, eating, working, relaxing ... more and more functions are combined in the same space. This evolution requires versatile furniture that is smart in its use of available space.
Motto-ika (freely translated as More-less) is a prototype that explores this field of tension. The folding bed offers a comfortable night's sleep, but can also be folded away to make room for other activities. Motto-ika embraces the aesthetics of the naked frame. Thus, with a minimum of material, both open and closed the bed is a beautiful object that does not need to be hidden.
