Turtle Stacking Bed
Manufacturer WB Form
Designer Lukas Buol and Marco Zünd
A stackable bed made from a plywood shell: put one frame on top of the other to create a couch or two frames next to each other for a double bed or use one frame for a guest bed. The Turtle Bed is a flexible and simple alternative to immovable furniture. Frame and base are made from one piece: The stackable Turtle Bed consists of a plywood shell that is raised off the floor and features a natural lacquer finish. The standard dimensions are 200/96,6/18cm (l/b/h). The routed channels create suspension and provide airing space for the mattress. When stacked, the feet fit into the handles and through this mechanism, the Turtle Bed can easily be turned into a couch, a double bed or a guest bed. This architectural concept by Lukas Buol and Marco Zünd is a fascinatingly simple design to facilitate flexible living. The Turtle Bed received the 1995 'Design Prize Switzerland'.
