A fun but minimal design that is part of Campeggi's new collection
Foresta is a far cry from the squeaky contraptions that unfurl from beneath cushions, their metal frames threatening to pinch skin with every tug. Indeed, the design more of a bed that is incidentally a sofa than a sofa bed. Japanese-born, Milan-based designer Sakura Adachi created the tent-shaped piece of furniture for the Italian design manufacturer Campeggi who presented Foresta for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2015 in Milan along with the modular Self-Made Seat.
The triangular wooden frame is dressed in a flexible white material that zips open and shut to reveal or conceal a single bed within. Once inside, the flap can either be zipped shut to create a cosy shelter or left completely open. When zipped shut, Foresta also becomes a sofa. Users sink back into the tensile structure as they would with regular cushions. Bonus: the entire structure and fabric are easily demountable, just like a regular tent!
