How cool is this? Pretty cool right?
The box looks like a standard blanket box from the outside, but when it is opened…genius and beauty is revealed!
This Box-bed was created and designed by Robert MacPherson to fit a rather strange niche.
Medieval re-enactor MacPherson designed this knockdown bed to be used during his extended trips to Pennsic, an annual event that gathers more than 10,000 re-enactors and medieval enthusiasts for two weeks of life in the Middle Ages. It is typical for campers at the event to construct elaborate campsites, knockdown beds and furniture that are easy transport.
Kind of strange right? Strange, but really, really cool.
MacPherson’s work resulted in a stowable unit that weighs about 100 pounds and can be brought to a medieval camping event or stored in a spare room for guests. The bed box is equipped with a futon mattress and unfolds to become a full-sized bed fit for medieval royalty…or…normal everyday life!
This bed box can be made as a twin all the way up to a king size.
Below we have listed where you can the detailed plans for each size bed. They do cost $8.99 to download, but a that is a small price to pay to create such a cool looking piece of functional furniture.
Such a cool and unique piece of furniture! Love it!
