Sosia Multifunction furniture for tiny spaces.

It’s called Sosia (meaning Doppelganger) and it’s the latest creation from Italian designer Emanuele Magini. This multifunctional sofa bed allows you to change appearances, style, size and functionality in as little space as possible. Comprised of soft and flexible external fabric, a big central hinge and an industrial zipper, Sosia can change shape depending on your mood or hospitality needs. With a few adjustments you can create an L-shaped conversation nook, a face-to-face sitting area, a cozy single bed, or raise the side panels to create a secret cubby or dressing room…

TRANFORMABLE TABLE

Via Notcot

Short on space but still need somewhere to sit down and eat? Here’s an innovative solution – the Picture Table is a unique dining table that flips back against the wall and becomes a stylish showcase for your favorite photograph, poster or piece of art.

The Picture Table is designed to be mounted on a side wall. When you have finished dining, the table rotates towards the wall and is fixed in place. It then becomes a large frame for an image that can be changed as often as you like.

The table is attached to the wall with three metal supports and the legs are kept in place with magnets. Posters can be easily removed and replaced and can also be enhanced with framing mat board if desired.

Particularly suitable for small apartments, hotel rooms or coffee shops, the Picture Table measures 130 x 85 x 78cm (51.2” x 33.5” x 30.7”) and is made from beech and balsa wood, plexi glass and stainless steel.

The Picture Table is produced in Italy and was designed by Verena Lang, the founder by IvyDesign. It weighs 20kg (44lbs) and costs EUR1,140 (approx. USD1,368 at time of publication) plus shipping. The company also makes a Mirror Table if you prefer to gaze at your own image!
