The matching set includes details like an Arne Jacobsen Egg and Swan Chair, a Series Seven table and chair set, wood paneling, a fold-out bed, jet-black paint and neoprene accents, and everything is designed to function as good as it looks.

If you’re interested in picking up one of your own, then be sure to keep an eye out for the upcoming debut at the Salone del Mobile show in Milan.
