QWERTY sofa by ZO_loft

arms folded and cheek pressed on the keys – sooner or later, at home or at work, we all end up by falling asleep on our computer’s keyboard. turning the archetypal image of a keyboard, into a sofa bed, QWERTY by italian studio ZO_loft uses micro-electric motors to control and adjust each individual ‘key’ cushion. in this way, the furniture becomes a playful carpet – a comfortable support but an unconventional surface – allowing users to be able to design new configurations useful for everyday life, giving them the opportunity to finally sleep on their keyboard.
