This was a one term school project in collaboration with the norwegian furniture manufacturer Hovden Møbler. The task was to forfill the needs of the increase of smaller and smaller apartments in urban environments. The users are young, urban and design interested. My goal was to make a furniture that could make Hovden stand out from the masses and get the etention they deserve. My focus during the project was to materialize the expression i had in my mind. The expression was honest, rough, sophisticated and simple. To do this I had to come up with a simple functionality that could be made out of wood alone so both function and looks relates to the words. The whole construction is wedged and plugged together so there are no need for tools when assembeling and disasembeling the sleeping sofa. When you put your weight on the seat the weight of your body helps you lay down or lift up the back when transforming from bed to sofa... Since this is just the first prototype not everything is as it should be. In lack of material I had to use some birch instead of elm and the pillows are borrowed from another sofa. But now everything is tested and proved so the next generation will be 100%. Read Less
