Oh What A Feeling, When You’re Sleeping on the Ceiling
We feature wall beds galore on this site and every now and again we see a trundle bed, but It’s not often that we see beds suspended from the ceiling. Generally speaking, ceiling mounting a bed requires a bit more engineering than other types of hiding beds. The upside (no pun intended) is that the bed doesn’t take up any wall or floor volume–useful in a skinny space with high ceilings. Such is the situation in this 355 sq ft Milanese apartment by architect Tommaso Giunchi.
The custom made bed is manually operated and pulled down standing on a hidden stool. Hiding the bed allows for the bedroom to double as living room during the day.
The bed is far from the only feature of the apartment: there is floor-to-ceiling MDF storage through the space, a kitchen featuring a small, fold-out bench and a bathroom that manages to fit a washer dryer in between the shower stall and sink.
Long and narrow apartments like this one are common throughout the world’s cities (called railroad apartments in the US). We appreciate Giunchi’s innovative approach to furniture design and space layout.
