Recovering the archetype of the faithful keyboard, Sofa Bed Sofa Qwerty aims to accommodate between her soft "keys" in different moments of everyday life, with a hint of irony. Qwerty Sofa is much more of a sofa-bed: the electric micro motors controlled by a remote control are designed in such a way that each key / cushion is adjustable in height so as to customize the entire surface provided according to their own preferences of form and functionality. Qwerty Sofa is a playful and unconventional furniture that can turn into a couch or a bed at will.
