Espace Loggia: Elevated Slumber

Elevator-Beds-3

By Chere Di Boscio

At the beginning of the film “An American in Paris,” impoverished artist Gene Kelly hoists the bed of his tiny studio into the ceiling via Β pulleys. I thought this was just a cute creation by the film’s prop directors, until I learned that these so-called ‘elevator’ beds actually exist.

And no wonder: space in Paris is at a premium, and flats are small. That’s why Espace Loggia has created its mobile bed. Or rather, mobile room units–the bed and pull-up apparatus comes complete with either chairs on a base of drawers for single beds, or a shelving unit and 2 supporting legs for a double bed. The legs and chairs support the weight of the bed once it’s on the ground, and also provide space-conscious furnishings for petit apartments in Paris and beyond.

Made from super-solid, high quality materials, the beds are meant to last a lifetime, and work best in spaces with ceilings high enough to render the bed innocuous, but too low to create a loft space in. They’re also perfect for kids’ rooms or guest rooms.

The best part is, you don’t even have to make the bed every day–just haul it up!

    It is incredible!! This kind of bed allows us to gain many place for us, students, who live in apartments not necessarily very big!
