    Out of universe the answer is 'a bunch of kitbashed futuristic-looking crap, intended to make it look like a cell in spaaaaace...'

    Greebles. They make it look like science fiction, instead of just a walk-in closet with an oddly shaped door.

    Extrapolation on my part, but the purpose of the bed might be to sleep on? :D Oct 7, 2021 at 17:37

    Har de Har, @Silly. In case anyone didn't get it, I'm asking about the red stripe on the bed. NKCampbell, I stand corrected.

    One of them probably pulls out to become a toilet. Oct 7, 2021 at 17:56
