The sofa sits below a large mirror with polished chrome or matt burnished edges. By pulling the handles inserted in the sides of the mirror, the wall unit rotates and forms the support feet when the bed is horizontal; the bed is now ready for sleep. The mattress support is slatted and the bed is complete with a mattress (160x200xH20 cm), duvet cover, a soft headboard with removable covers and a handy shelf-nightstand.
The bed can be stowed away easily; when it is raised, the feet are recessed and the sofa and mirror reappear. The finishes of the internal and external surfaces of the wall unit can be customized thanks to a comprehensive selection of lacquer colors and scratch-proof heat-structured finishes from the Flou collection. A patented mechanism guarantees the perfect closure of the wall-unit, protecting the bed from dust and eliminating the anti-esthetic belts that, in similar units on the market, hold the mattress in a vertical position.

The backrest and armrests of the armchair have been produced from a single piece of heartwood.

A round or oval version of this wooden table are available with two luxurious finishes (Coffee Brown oak or Rialto Canaletto walnut). A sensation of unexpected lightness contrasts with its real solidity and is conferred by the elegant space that separates the table top from the truncated oval heartwood legs, a characteristic that is repeated in the chairs and armchairs.
Measurements: round Ø200xH76 cm – oval 280x140xH76 cm.
Optional Lazy Susy _ This is a top for dishes. It is positioned in the center of the round or oval table. It is raised 5 cm with respect to the table top and is fitted with a LED light (battery rechargeable) that creates a feeling of suggestion and harmony. The round version can revolve.
