Nomadic Bed: Finn Stewart

The world is currently experiencing increasing urban property prices, decreasing property sizes and greater opportunities for individuals to travel, work, and study abroad. In response to these issues, there is a trend towards a growth in the urban nomadic lifestyle.

From this research, I identified the bed, a sleeping surface, as the most vital single item of furniture for the urban nomad and for those in a small space living situations. There is no other single item which performs the multitude of tasks required; the bed can act as a bedroom, living room and study, providing a space equally adaptable to sleeping, relaxation, work, and socialising.

The design is a easily transportable bed structure that is both lightweight and durable, yet retains a sense of permanence when set up in a dwelling.
