L Leg Bed

"The packaging must be planned in such a way so that it can be easily carried up four flights of stairs, even up a narrow stairwell or spiral staircase.'' Said the manager at a knock-down furniture company as we walked up to a fourth-floor apartment in Paris.

 
Design of knock-down furniture must take into consideration many restrictions: there must be as few pieces as possible, the assembly must be easy enough for anyone to do, the different parts could be manufactured in different countries, etc. These restrictions became very clear to me in my walk up to the Paris apartment for dinner when I suddenly realized that such limitations were an excellent opportunity and motivation for design.
