Recent Royal College of Art graduate Andrea Pallarès explores the idea of flexible furniture for urban living in her graduation project. With the cost of living always on the rise, people continue to downsize, which often means having to rely on rooms and furniture that pull double duties. With that in mind, Pallarès designed Nook, an all-in-one piece of furniture that adapts to your needs throughout the day.
Nook is a bespoke bed frame that comes with a pillow and duvet covers that double as a backrest and armrest and three upholstered cushions that become space dividers. Overall, the design easily transforms from being a social spot to welcome guests during the day to a cozy, private corner to sleep at night. With smaller homes, not everyone has the option to own both a bed and a sofa making Nook a great option for optimal comfort and functionality.
Adding to its functionality, Nook also has built-in flat surface on one side that works as either a side table or desk. A system of magnets keep the three cushions propped up vertically for privacy.
The pillow and duvet covers roll up to become an armrest and a backrest. Nook was made using FEBRIK textiles, which contributed to the project by half sponsoring the textile part.
