This multifunctional sofa concept was designed for small spaces

Posted by Assia Awad

Pandora is a multifunctional sofa system concept by design engineers Andreas Orpheas Makos and Manolis Stratis, created for studios with small space, with the purpose of converting the living-room by flexibly adapting to requirement, depending on the occasion, thus generating the most out of the available space. It has functions that serve four basic user needs; relaxation, entertainment, dining and studying, all integrated into one piece of furniture. It is comprised of a sofa/bed, cushions, three folding stools that can also function as footstools, a folding table, two roll-away benches and a drawer.

Pandora won the Bronze A’ Design Award 2014-2015
