Day and night, sofa and bed

Night&Day is a smart furniture design by Patricia Urquiola, usually furniture designed to create pieces that are specific to handle one task such as sitting, sleeping or storing. Its a challenge of Patricia to create something different pieces of furniture that can handle several task and could help you to saving your space. A solution you could literally sleep, work, and relax on. The Night&Day seating system for Molteni & C attempts to push the boundaries of versatility and offers a new take on applying modular design thinking to furniture.

The curved section is actually flexible and can be adjusted from a vertical seating position to a reclining one. The platform comes in a wide and tall version which when cushions are added form a sofa or a chaise lounge. But there is one other feature. The cushions are sized to function as a single sized bed. Multiple platforms can also be rearranged to function differently together and adapt to various sized spaces. The system can be ordered with a host of accessories like storage bins, tables, and some clever pouches with integrated reading lights that hold magazines, books, and newspapers.
