Delaktig takes pride in its versatility. Tom Dixon presents the basic model of a sofa bed, which can be adapted using numerous extra components. Inspired by the so-called Ikea hackers, Dixon created a flexible piece of furniture that encourages the customers to modify it themselves. "It doesn't matter if you're in prison, you're camping, you're in the army, you're on your deathbed, everybody needs a bed," states the designer in the introduction to the collection. And Delaktig lives up to Dixon's promise. A simple bed can be easily turned into a couch during the day while offering multiple other benefits. A coffee table, an extra backrest, a magazine rack - you name it. Delaktig can do it all.

Representing a customizable design, the Delaktig soffa bed is a perfect fit for small spaces where each piece needs to serve various purposes. For Dixon, it was however crucial to resonate with the Ikea philosophy of sustainability in the same time. The sofa frames are therefore made from light and durable aluminium. Bemz then produced three luxe sofa covers, each in a whole different design. This all covered by a single motto: "It's a bed first but it can turn into anything."
