A Sleepbox For Catching a Nap at the Airport
Here’s an idea whose time has come, from Moscow United electricity control centre. The architects are trying to address the lack of comfort or private space for travelers who are on the go.Â Their SLEEPBOX units could be rented for up toÂ several hours, enough to provide turnkey sleeping for jet-lagged travelers trying to catch up.
The architects envisage them installed at train stations and airports:
“It is not a comfortable situation, because in our modern, aggressive cities there are no opportunities to rest and relax. If you want to sleep, while waiting your plane or train, it may cause many security and hygiene problems. We believe that urban infrastructure should be more comfortable for people. For this purpose we have developed the SLEEPBOX. It provides moments of quiet sleep and rest from the city without wasting time searching for a hotel.”
They envisage the SLEEPBOX as making it possible for anybody to be able to spend the night safely and cheaply in an emergency, like when you are stranded with your baggage unexpectedly and you are afraid that you might doze off in an airport and not be able to protect your belongings.
