Solution Overview & Benefits

Leafbed is a modular emergency bed made entirely of cardboard. The identical modules can make an ergonomic adult bed, a child's bed or a stool. The beds can be shipped flat and are recyclable and biodegradable. They are intended to be used in situations where a large number of temporary beds are required quickly.

An adaptable design The LeafBed is assembled from 4 identical modules that can have alternative uses: ● 4 modules for an adult bed ● 3 modules for kid bed ● 2 modules for a small table ● 1 module for a stool ● A compartment on each module allows user to secure belongings inside the bed while sleeping. ● 2 trestles for a big table

An efficient product The LeafBed has been designed to be ergonomic and adaptable while using only a very simple and basic material. Contrary to popular belief, cardboard is very resistant. The LeafBed can support up to 300kg and face a very high hygrometry (up to 75 % of relative humidity in the atmosphere).

Biodegradable and recyclable, has a positive carbon balance contrary to classical bedding solutions.
