Multi-purpose furniture, such as the Convertible Sofa and Soleil 1,2,3 baby bed, is a great way for those living in cramped conditions to keep clutter to a minimum. A new couch concept from designer Matthew Pauk called the Slot Sofa is designed to maximize available space with a hideaway dual ottoman and coffee table.

When tucked away into the couch, the coffee table serves as a divider between each of the two seats, providing a perfect surface for a game of chess or for resting some beverages and snacks – or perhaps acting as a handy barrier between you and someone providing unwanted attention.

When pulled out, a third seat is revealed, and what was once the divider is now a coffee table with platforms either side that act as foot rests. Two cushions previously tucked under the sofa are placed on the platforms to provide a soft spot for users to put their feet up, with magnets used to stop the cloth cushions sliding off the wood surface.

While the Slot Sofa is just a concept prototype at this stage, we've contacted Matthew Pauk asking if there are any plans to take it further. We'll update the story if and when we hear back.

I like the versatility of it. It would be great for small apartments and small houses.

This is a clever design...but will the cantilevered sofa seats really stand up to heavy domestic use?

Clever design concept, visually appealing. Agree with Alien though, needs to be a steel or strong composite frame to handle everyday domestic use. Not everyone weights 50kg ;-)
