Sectional sofa bed with pocket sprung Simmons mattress, fitted with Lampolet metal action mechanism and pull out single, double or king size bed. Comes as 2-3 seater, chaise or corner sectional. In fabric, velvet, leather.


Clean-lined, simple, practical, easy to open, Joao is a sectional sofa bed with pocket sprung mattress. Equipped with a Lampolet metal action fold-out mechanism, it is completed with an electro-welded bed base and a concealed pillow storage compartment. The result is a balanced combination of aesthetics and functionality.
Joao is available as a 2 or 3 seater in size 160, 180, 200 or 220 cm as well as in modular versions with right or left chaise lounge, storage or corner layouts you can complete with a footstool or storage pouffe. Linear, corner, U-shaped or L-shaped modules can be combined to create bespoke sofas, perfectly fitted to any type of living room.
Designed to be placed in a living room as well as in a guest room, when first produced this milestone piece represented the leap from a mere functional piece to a sofa that is beautiful during the day and comfortable at night. A challenge that Bodema has set itself and that keeps on to stimulate new solutions even today.
Joao brings extreme practicality to any room where an extra bed is needed. The Italian mechanism opens effortlessly and without removing any cushions, revealing a large single, small double or standard double bed. The pocket sprung Simmons mattress is 200 cm long, ergonomic and comfortable, suitable for everyday use. Each spring is packed and independent from the others, sealed using the Lap-seal technology that guarantees the best performance in terms of spine support and limited motion transfer. Which is great for beds that host two. For extra ease of use you can add an Easy Move lifting system with retractable wheels that make it easier to move the sofa. Plus, you can add a cover to conceal the pull-out frame's metal parts.
With Joao, the sleeper sofa leaves the guest room to explore the living room. The design plays with a streamlined geometry and proportioned volumes. Its straightforward aesthetic is characterised by squared block feet that support the corded armrests. Seating comfort is ensured by large cushions filled with polyurethane foam in different densities.
The upholstery comes in leather, velvet or fabric in a selection of trendy colours and patterns to suit any style.
