revolve sofa bed | design numen/foruse
Revolve is a multifunctional sofa that unites seating and sleeping needs. Its design can make a grand statement in a room, and with just a smooth rotation of 180 degrees transforms sitting into sleeping. Revolve offers an optimal sleeping quality while its padding resembles self standing mattresses, made of high resilience foam. Thereby it provides equal quality of your sleep on entire lying surfaces – whether in the middle or on the sides. Thanks to its dynamic shape and dual function it can be used in homes, offices and secondary residences. Revolve is the recipient of the RED DOT Award for product design 2012, with which the international jury recognized not only the sofa’s functionality, practicality and exceptional aesthetics, but also prostoria’s outstanding production.
Revolve is a multifunctional sofa that unites seating and sleeping function in an innovative way. Its design stands out in every interior, giving it a special character.
NUMEN/FORUSE IS A CROATIAN-AUSTRIAN DESIGN COLLECTIVE WORKING IN THE FIELDS OF SCENOGRAPHY, INDUSTRIAL AND SPATIAL DESIGN AND CONCEPTUAL ART. THE GROUP WAS FIRST FORMED IN 1998 AS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT OF INDUSTRIAL DESIGNERS.
Under the banner ForUse they designed for Cappellini, ClassiCon, Desalto, Interlubke, Magis, mdf Italia, Moroso and Zanotta. Numen/ForUse designs interiors and outdoor spaces in cooperation with architecture studios 3lhd (Croatia) and Imarea (Austria). In 2008 the collective turns its focus towards configuring objects and concepts, an activity resulting in more hybrid and experimental works such as the Numen-Light series, Tape Installation and Net. From 2004 onwards, they became intensely involved with scenography. Numen/ForUse are the only Croatian contemporary product designers whose works are regularly represented in global anthologies of contemporary design.
