As fans of flatpak construction, we are intrigued by the new Itbed  design from It Design . Made from folded 7mm thick cardboard, the accordion folded cardboard bedframe is easy to collapse and store away, making it a perfect guest-bed for unexpected visitors. While we are a little suspicious that this design really is as simple as it looks – i.e. merely a stack of folded cardboard – we have to hand it to It Design  for trying to market this simple space-saving take on the fold-away bed.
Honestly however, instead of going to this much trouble – I would probably just put the mattress on the floor.
