While many people might dream of making their home in an expansive mansion or countryside estate, that’s simply not the reality for most people, particularly those that choose to live in cities. Urban life comes with many advantages — cultural, culinary, creative — but it often does not come with a lot of space. Instead of succumbing to a lifestyle that is cramped and uncomfortable, Ori Systems has come up with a much better idea. With their creative bed console, a small space can be simultaneously a bedroom, living room, work area, and closet.
With just a push of a button, the bed slides away, leaving room for other activities. The result is an apartment that is more functional and beautiful than any combination of furnishings could be.
When fully extended, a full or queen bed leaves plenty of space for sleeping.
To entertain, the bed can slide closed, opening up space on the other side of the room.
Surrounding the bed is tons of shelving, including a full entertainment unit and even hooks for coats and bags.
It’s important that a comfortable home have plenty of floor space and this solution allows for that, even in a studio.
Even without putting the bed away, the unit makes a cozy area to relax on the opposite side.
The modern look of the unit can fit with many different design styles.
Working from home can be tricky in a studio space, but this solution helps.
Shelving, and storage are critical in keeping a small space organized.
Plenty of drawers are perfect for keeping those everyday tchotchkes out of view.
While the factory design is simple, owners can always further decorate the piece for more color, new hardware, and interesting details.
Of course, it never hurts to bring in a bit of color from nature.
The tiny button feature here is all you need to move, shift, and rearrange the unit for its various configurations.
