The Trusscot by U-Type Design exhibits a distinctively well-considered system of construction and aesthetics that is seldom found in an object such as this. Intended only for occasional use when overflow sleepers are required, this surprisingly intricate piece of furniture would go as far as to impress.

This stylish modern cot was developed in response to a challenge that placed priority on compactness for storage and swiftness of assembly. The resultant composition would rely on a clever structure of triangle-incised plywood panels, flatpacked for easy manufacturing, shipping and stashing. When it's not in use, the Trusscot by U-Type Design can be easily taken apart and tucked under a bed or inside a closet. Complete with a taut fabric "mattress" and a privacy canopy, the bed would certainly improve the state of temporary shared living arrangements.
