How does one have enough seating for friends, while actually have floor space to walk around? For many, modular furniture is a great answer, as it has a smaller footprint in one state, but can be expanded for additional seating in another. That's just what the Fabrizio Simonetti designed Sofista does.
In its default setting, the Sofista is a three-seat couch with arms on each side. This allows enough room for a few people to sit comfortably. When needed, the two arms pull away, with one becoming a chair, and the other a chaise longue. In this configuration, seating for two or three additional people becomes available, and it can be tucked back away when not needed.
The Sofista actually goes a step further, turning into a bed for house guests who need to stay for the night. For anyone in a small place with no guest bedroom, this can be a valuable asset, and it takes up far less space than a fold-out sofa would when opened.
