Finnish Bunkbed, with car


Designed by Pirkko Stenroos and manufactured by Muurame.
"The drawers slide out from under the bed on wheels and can quickly be converted into a toybox car equipped even with a steering wheel. It is no surprise that since this form rationally answers the demands of a growing family, it has become one of the most popular furniture forms in Finland."
-from Finnish Design: Facts and Fancy by Donald J. Wilcox (1973)

Unfortunately I don't think Muurame makes the car conversion drawer anymore, but Pirkko Stenroos' designs are alive and well and make us want to redesign our son's room, down to the Invicta-striped, Noddy-esque wardobe.
