At the Milan Furniture Fair, perennial Co.Design favorite Campeggi unveiled five new designs that transform or pack flat–a trend that responds to swelling numbers of urban residents who demand multi-functional pieces for smaller abodes.
The Slalom by Giulio Manzoni can be used as a sofa and quickly rearranged to become a bed. It’s easier to manage than clunky pull-outs—and more handsome to boot. Plus, the two-part piece can be reconfigured to become a sectional or used as two separate seats.
Also by Manzoni is Lieve, a coffee table that pops up into an armchair.
Designer Emanuele Magini created the Yoda, a high-backed armchair whose upholstered seat pulls out to become a chair. The chair back then folds down to become a desk. Voila–instant writing station.
The Tou by Sakura Adachi is a beanbag chair that cleverly unzips to become a futon and holds a blanket and pillow.
Denis Santachiara designed the inflatable Ca.Mia bed that folds down into the size of a small suitcase for easy storage. While its mesh top won’t do much to protect campers from rain, it’ll keep bugs at bay.
