Ever since we’ve been mulling various hidden bed interations about a year ago, we’ve been atuned to novel solutions. At the top of the list is the moveable bed Vincent Kartheiser (of Mad Men fame) installed in his tiny 580 sq. ft Hollywood cabin. The brainstorm of designer Funn Roberts, the bed is suspended from the ceiling with a serious of pulleys and weights that allow Kartheiser to raise and lower it easily.
When the bed is pushed up, the slab wood headboard folds out to a desk.
It’s really clever…
…though we’re not crazy about a bedsize box hanging from the ceiling (which would have to be pretty high), though it does appear to float.
Still, we’re happy to have the basic notion stored in our head, a possibile solution for who-knows-what design problem.
