Flip the word “paq” upside-down and you get “bed.” A quest for dual meaning is the driving force behind the Paq Chair, the transformative armchair that can be unfolded into a floor mattress. Born out of Hungarian designer Géza Csire’s desire to challenge the perception of objects, this collapsible, comfortable, and convertible piece offers a new lease on modern living.
Necessity was the mother of Géza Csire’s invention. Upon moving to a tiny apartment in 2010, the young Hungarian designer created the Paq, a convertible chair that provided him with a mattress when he needed it, a seat when he didn’t. Honored at the 2011 Belgrade Mikser Design Festival, this forward-thinking design reimagines the function of futons for compact spaces.
Seat height (when folded) 15.74”. Flat mattress 3.94” (10cm) thick. Includes foam mattress, textile cover with a zipper, optional fiber drum, and permanently attached protective sheet. Measurements as a bed: L 78.75" W 35.5" H 3.94".
