It is defined as the most resistant and comfortable folding sofa: this piece of furniture folds up into a box that can be sent by courier, or simply transported by car.
Modern life: you change jobs several times over the years, and maybe you even have to change cities. In the era of liquidity, even the cornerstones adapt: how about taking your dear, old sofa with you? Maybe folding it and carrying it like a bike. Elephant in a Box is just that: a folding sofa. More: a sofa in a box! It can be assembled in less than 5 minutes and disassembled in less than 2 (and without the need for tools of any kind).
Ideal for fugitives… er, for people who move often.
The keystone that makes a three-seater sofa foldable is in the extremely light and flexible structure of its “frame”. Elephant in a Box has a “honeycomb” body that opens and closes like an accordion, or like those old paper lanterns. By expanding and contracting, it allows you to cram the piece of furniture into a very small space. No rigid structure, no springs, no slats.
It breaks through, come on. It is not possible. “Never !,” let us know from the company. The folding sofa structure quickly recovers its shape after applying pressure. And it can bear weight up to 450kg. Mizzica, here you can also stay in 6. But maybe I will take a chair, okay?
