Sofabed, 2009
Bamboo and cotton, (78 x 212 x 75 cm)
’For the unexpected visitors who stays overnight’.
The sofa is designed by engineer, Claus Molgaard and Ole Jensen.

From the beginning it was the ambition to create a piece of furniture
with a new and spontaneous functionality, with manufacturing and
material selection based on real environmental analysis. The development
is done in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark,
(Quantitative Sustainability Assessment — Department of Management
Engineering) Professor, Ph.D. Michael Zwicky Hauschild, Anji Bamboo
Technical Centre, China, and the world’s largest manufacturer
of cotton mattresses, Innovation Randers.
The manufactured sofas are prototypes. Shown for the first time
at the exhibition "It’s a small world" at the Danish Design Centre,
Copenhagen, from August 28, 2009 to January 31st, 2010.
