One of the key pieces in Cherman’s space-efficient apartment is an Italian-fabricated multifunctional module that combines a sofa and folding bed into a single compact unit. At night, the bed folds out overtop the sofa, while the rectangular shelf turns into a support for the weight of the bed. Opposite the bed is a wall panel that folds down into a tabletop. When not in use, the stackable chairs and dining table base can be neatly stored in the closet.

Cherman even equipped his tiny studio with an extra guest bed that folds out from behind the wall panel. A Diz armchair and a Mocho stool, designed by the “father of Brazilian furniture design” Sergio Rodrigues, add extra design flair to the apartment. The vibrant Brazil-inspired pattern used in the tile backsplash was designed by artist João Henrique and provides a visual contrast to the predominately neutral tones in the room.
