  • A sit-down dinner for 12 (2 Giravolta Home Resource Furniture Smart Savers - secondary function).

  • A comfortable lounging for 8 people (Nuovoliola10 sofa-bed Home Resource Furniture Smart Savers + custom made sofa with storage-drawer for 12 folding chairs (HRF + 2 ottomans one with sleeping function).

  • Space for 2-3 guests with 100% visual privacy (Poopi Book = Bookcase + Twin wall bed + fold out desk (3 functions in one) + ottoman with sleeping function).

  • Home office around the Mac 31" monitor in the open space/entertainment area. The monitor can be used for work, as part of the Cisco telepresence system, for watching movies, etc. (2 Giravolta table = desk).

It is quick and easy to change room functions. Transformation possibilities increase the space�s usefulness. The sleeping area turns into a lounging/entertainment area, the office evolves into an open space with a dinner table for 12, while a working space transforms into an office/guest room.

Series MirroFilm shades are used, controlled with the Mechoshade Home System. It's a transparent, light filtering and heat insulating material. The color of the shade cloth is 0606 Smoke (gray). Darker colors provide a better view through the shadecloth to the outside, absorbing light and heat. They transmit less light and have a lower surface brightness, which lowers reflectivity and provides excellent glare-free environments for CRTs and work stations.
