Transforming sofabed for the discriminating '70s bachelor pad

Those crazy European designers keep making Sofabeds better and better. First we had the Sofa bunk bed, now comes a bed that transforms into not one but two sofas. The Scoop bed comes in both round and square versions. Each splits in half and swings open to become two sofas for daytime use. The idea, according to the Italian product's website, is to bring a product "intended for the hidden corners of the house" to the center of the room.

The round version has an Austin Powers-style appeal, which may indicate a flaw in the product's design: do people who own round beds ever want to transform them into anything else?
