Night and Day – The New Seating System of Modular Transformable Sofa from Molteni&C
Whenever you go out to buy bedroom furniture, keep in mind that quality matters more than quantity. Furniture is not something that you would want to change every other month (unless and until you are a billionaire). If you want to pass on your bedroom furniture to your children, or even grandchildren, go for something that, although a bit expensive, is durable and will last a long time. In other words, rather than veneers, buy furniture with dovetail edges and real hardwood finishes. Night and Day is a new seating system designed by Patricia Urquiola as the new innovative solutions for saving space. It’s the single piece of furniture that implements functions of many separate ones. Sleep, work, relax, watching tv and many other things are possible with it.
Night & Day has the design without limits: colors, sizes, adjustable back and built-in accessories can be combined together to satisfy individual needs. The foundation of the system is a thin platform that is curved up to form a back rest. The curved section is actually flexible and can be adjusted from a vertical seating position to a reclining one. There are as wide as tall versions of the platform with cushions, which are sized to function as a single bed, or not. Multiple platforms could be combined to adapt various sized spaces. The system also could be accompanied by storage bins, tables, and some clever pouches with integrated reading lights that hold magazines, books, and newspapers. Night and Day is a Molteni & C attempt to push the boundaries of versatility by a new take on modular furniture design. [via]
