Daybe by Morten & Jonas - Northern

Daybe belongs to a new generation of sofas designed to balance function and practicality with comfort and style. Characterised by clean lines, balanced proportions, tailored details and its ‘soft block’ construction, this stunning sofa bed provides the cornerstone every interior needs. A pair of optional armrests have been introduced this season, crafted from strips of smooth metal that extend behind the sofa to form a sleek backrest.

Unlike conventional sofa beds constructed from coils, springs and levers, Daybe converts into a bed in one smooth motion. The optional armrests maximise Daybe’s comfort without affecting the ease with which it transforms into a bed and back again. Available in a variety of fabrics, the sofa provides relaxation during daytime, and encourages deep sleep and sweet dreams at night.

Norwegian designers Morten Skjærpe Knarrum
and Jonas Norheim are known eponymously
as Morten & Jonas. They established their
studio in Bergen, Norway after receiving their
master’s degrees from the Bergen Academy of
Art and Design. The designers’ cutting-edge
furniture and lighting designs are sparked by
curiosity and imagination, but characterised
by irreverence and wit. Morten & Jonas’ point
of departure was their ability to bring social
agendas into design, even enlisting the help of
incarcerated men and women to manufacturer
one of their early designs for Northern. Since
then, Morten & Jonas have produced a range
of celebrated designs, won several awards
and had their work exhibited internationally.
In Northern’s debut collection, they give full
expression to their combined talents, designing
multifunctional furniture and discreet lighting
while fulfilling their role as Creative Directors
for the brand.
