Transformer Bed-Chairs

The Girella Can Transform Into a Chair Or Bed and is Ideal For Children

— February 27, 2015 — Art & Design
Chairs that convert into beds aren't exactly new, but what's unique about the Girella -- designed by Lorenzo Damiani -- is the manner in which the transformation from chair to bed takes place. This chair seamlessly transforms from armchair to mattress in an unbelievably simple manner.

In its armchair mode, the Girella is pretty small and seems to be designed for kids, as it's only about 70 cm high and 62 cm across, with the seat 41 cm above ground level.

When rolled out, the Girella is a small single-sized mattress measuring 193 x 80 cm, making it slightly smaller than a regular single bed. The assembly is anything but complicated -- the chair can literally be rolled out into a mattress as it is made of soft polyurethane foam with polyester padding.

The Girella is a great example of how an existing concept -- a chair that transforms into a bed -- can be altered to make it more suitable for a specific demographic, in this case children.
Trend Themes
1. Convertible Furniture - The Girella showcases the trend of furniture that seamlessly transforms from one form to another, offering convenience and versatility.
2. Child-oriented Design - The Girella highlights the trend of designing furniture specifically for children, catering to their unique needs and preferences.
3. Simplified Assembly - The Girella exemplifies the trend of creating furniture that is easy to assemble, appealing to consumers looking for hassle-free products.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Manufacturing - The furniture manufacturing industry has the opportunity to capitalize on the demand for convertible furniture, creating innovative designs that cater to different consumer segments.
2. Children's Furniture - The children's furniture industry can leverage the trend of child-oriented design by creating more products that are tailored to children's comfort and aesthetic preferences.
3. Home Decor Retail - Home decor retailers can tap into the trend of simplified assembly by offering furniture options that are easy to set up, appealing to consumers seeking convenient solutions for their living spaces.
