Outline

The mattress has been trimmed down to just the functions necessary for sleeping and sitting, giving it high utility for use as a bed or sofa. This transforms rooms that could be nothing but bedrooms with existing beds into living rooms. This product has been tremendously successful for people living in city one-room dwellings.

Evaluation

Though it has a long life, it also has a modern look that appeals to today's young people. Even for a Muji product it is especially simple and beautiful; the design makes you think it can't get any simpler than this.
