Abitacolo Bed/Play Thing By Bruno Munari

I know it kind of looks like it belongs in the laundry room, but isn't that part of its charm? Also, each one comes with a personalized license plate?

Bruno Munari designed Abitacolo [Italian for "cockpit"], a bed/play/study/storage structure for kids, for the retail fixture manufacturer Robots [!] in 1972. I thought it was lost to the ages, but I just found out yesterday that Robots still makes and sells Abitacolo in Europe.
