Wiege und Schaukelstuhl, Gitterbett, Kinderbett oder Couch – dieses wandelbare Möbel trumpft mit einer Vielzahl von Einsatzmöglichkeiten auf.

Two Berlin-based product designers Sina Gwosdzik and Jakob Dannenfeldt, themselves parents of two children, master-minded “jäll&tofta” – created in 2010, it’s an airy 4-in-1 piece of furniture made of lacquered birch plywood with an adjustable size.

One, two, three! Time flies past! And “Rocky” keeps pace with it: In the first few months of a child’s life it functions as a cradle with an integrated, upholstered rocking chair. After that phase of intense physical proximity to the baby, the item certainly doesn’t end up in an attic collecting dust, but adjusts to keep pace with the infant. Simply swiveled 180 degrees, “Rocky” (it weighs in at around 60 kilos) gets stood on its head. And with two add-ons (in white, natural wood, or pink) it is quickly transformed into a safe, slightly raised crib. The years may pass, but “Rocky” remains a faithful companion. As a couch for everyone, as a play area with plenty of storage space beneath it, or hide-&-seek terrain – the former children’s bed has long since become a firm member of the household. (uma)
