Twins Transformable coffee/Lounge chairs by Claudio Sibille

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Twins

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Transformable coffee/Lounge chairs

INSPIRATION:
Though we´re not expecting twins, my wife´s pregnancy is what gave me the initial idea. The rest was drawing and rendering.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Coffee table/lounge chairs furniture consist of a hollow cofee table, from which two hidden individual lounge chairs can be extracted through the removable lateral doors of the table. During the extraction of the seats, the legs are folded in a closed position so to fit inside the coffee table. The design is contemporary, sustainable and ideal for unexpected guests who will never imagine the two full seats coming out. The user can choose to take out either one or both seats, depending on his needs. When the chairs are out and in use (many users would opt to use this mode in a permanent basis) the table has plenty of room to store from magazines, to book, laptops, etc, etc.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The transformation is as simple as it gets. The table is hollow. At the right and left sides, what seem to be merely the lateral surfaces, are indeed two lids that are extracted in order to remove the inner content of the table: the two chairs. Simple pieces of small hardware keeop the lids adjusted to the main body of the table and are extracted by slightly pressure pulling. Once the lids are out, the chairs are removed. In order for the chairs to fit inside the table, the legs have to be foldable. Otherwise, the table would have to be much much higher and would totally lose the purpose of a coffe table. Once the chairs are out, the lids are put back on and the transformation is complete.

PROFILE:
M3 focuses its work on the result of the real estate trends , while they may be obvious , it is not particularly exploited a niche . The homes tend to be getting smaller while still increasing the square footage value. And herein lies the dilemma of how to furnish an environment of reduced dimensions without losing the typical elements that every home needs for its quality of daily life . Why not having everything a big living room has if it’s within our reach without losing style and design, and further more, without sacrificing precious space. Well, M3 is all about multi functionality and space saving. With the help of designer Claudio Sibille, and other major designers soon to be part of our team, we are committed to provide the consumer with a new way of thinking furniture in terms of functionality and design to ensure that no matter how tiny a space is, we can still preserve the same quality of life we may have in larger apartments. Imagine a two seat sofa that can be transformed into the same piece plus two more lounge chairs for visitors, a couple of chairs popping up surprisingly out of the blue from a storing drawer cabinet, a small cabinet with drawers that can easily be transformed into a full transportable desk with a chair included within a blink of a eye, or a chair that can be transformed into a bed or in two extra banks without losing the original chair for unexpected guests . Well, this is what we do, this is our mission.
