The Morpha Double is a slick 2-seater couch with 2 matching floor cubes which can be ingeniously reconfigured to form a double bed mattress in less than 3 seconds – just perfect for friends who drop by unexpectedly, without compromising aesthetics and living space.

Designed specifically for the Young Designer Furniture Award (YDFA) in November 2008 and sponsored by Dunlop Foams, this ingenious sofa won 2nd place in the competition – and I was happily awarded a cash prize but best of all – I got to keep the couch prototype!

The Young Designer Furniture Award (YDFA) was created in 2007 by Dunlop Foams to promote the discovery and development of new talent in Australian furniture design. The competition was held between the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and saw Alison Page of ABC’s New Inventors judge alongside representatives from Harvey Norman, Dunlop, RMIT and UTS.
