A Sofa That Transforms To a Bed by Lowering From the Ceiling

If you live in a smaller space, you know that you have to make the most of every inch for maximum functionality, as well as peace of mind. Ori is a smart space company that’s been rethinking how people live with multifunctional, robotic-powered solutions that increase usable square footage. Their designs pack two for one, like their latest which goes from living room to bedroom in 30 seconds by hitting a button, swiping a finger or a voice command. The Cloud Bed Sofa Edition hides the bed away above at the ceiling in a built-in frame and when it’s time for sleep it easily glides down to the floor disguising the sofa.

Ceilings are often just wasted space but the Cloud Bed Sofa Edition utilizes it to accommodate a queen or king bed, thereby creating two dedicated spaces within the same footprint. During the day, a three-seater sofa with built-in tables as arms looks streamlined and modern with no signs of the hidden bed. Come nighttime, or whenever you sleep, the bed descends to make a contemporary bedroom.

The launch of the Cloud Bed (sofa edition) comes at a time when people are spending more time in cramped apartments, and multifamily property owners are looking for ways to optimize and improve the utility, usability and flexibility of each square foot.

The Cloud Bed Sofa Edition can easily be retrofitted into existing layouts (with a minimum 8’6″ ceiling height) or installed into new builds. They’re available for purchase and installation in the North American market, arriving flat-packed for assembly on site where it has no permanent components attached in the space so it can be easily assembled or disassembled as needed. Concealed steel rails are anchored to the wall with a hidden counterweight that allows the bed to be cantilevered above. Outfitted with smart technology that consists of robotic components so the bed can move up and down, it’s also UL certified with built-in safety features to keep everyone safe.
