Upholstered in green fabric intended to evoke military tents, the arms of the Tent Sofa can be unfolded to create walls and a pitched roof around the extended mattress.
The chair was on show at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan during April.

Here's some text from Campeggi:
A sofa bed is usually placed in a space that is shared or common, therefore completely exposing the user to the other inhabitants of the space.
When a person spends a night on a sofa bed, he or she (the guest) might feel exposed and lack privacy.
The Tent sofa transforms into a shelter in a few moments for its user to spend a good night sleep while keeping his or her privacy.
The sofa gives the impression of a standard military tent.
