In a tiny space having a full size bed and a full size desk is a rare combination. Unless some clever thinking is involved. Hers is an interesting idea from Baltimore based designer Graham Phakos РUrban Desk. The spacious desk is hidden underneath a double bed. As the bed pivots to lean against the wall, the desk is lifted to the appropriate height. The arrangement also makes room for extra storage Рalways a welcome addition to any urban dwelling. The piece is only a concept at this point. I really hope it finds its way to production.

Good job Graham! Don’t listen to negative narcissistic insights. Cars have been around for over a hundred years, and every year companies try to refine their designs to make money. I like your desk-bed.
