BLESS This Workbed

View all 6 Photos

Found in Berlin, the BLESS HOME is a live-work studio for the international design collective BLESS. The apartment features BLESS’s designs as they are made, including Ines Kaag and Desiree Heiss’s Workbed, a space-saver that is seemingly made for those artists who sleep over in their studios.
Just long enough to use for a meeting, the workspace looks like a lengthier version of the desk I was issued in college. Its simple wooden design emphasizes utility, and the shelves on the side help to reduce clutter. Keeping this desk bare is a must if one wants to take advantage of its full potential.
To turn the desk over, one just presses a button, releasing the locks so that the work side can be flipped over to reveal a bed. The bed side looks as though it can fit a small person and maybe a cat, but sometimes that’s all one needs. For multitaskers who like the idea of working where they sleep, the Workbed is a compact choice. To learn more and purchase the Workbed, inquire directly with BLESS.
