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.

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.
