A 2-person folding bed of 160.0x200.0 cm for a guest room. So a frame for the mattress, a frame around this frame and a cupboard in which the bed can be stored. This room is also used as a hobby room.

Custom folding bed frame

First made the frame for the bed and then the entire frame. Then folding legs and hinge points were installed. After the 'bak' was ready, made the cupboard in which the bed is folded and also mounted the hinge point there. The specific materials (legs, hinges, compression springs) were ordered via In America this is called a Murphe bed. The construction drawing was adjusted from inches to centimeters and to mattress sizes for the Netherlands (60 x 80 inches became 160.0 x 200.0 cm).

The dimensions of the project

Total dimensions of the cupboard (when the bed is folded) is 174.0 cm wide, 45.0 cm deep and 220.0 cm high. The entire bed itself is 16.0 cm high, 169.0 cm wide and 204.0 cm deep.
