Sleepbox by Arch Group
by Ted Savage / September 21, 2011
Via @core77, an available-just-about-anywhere private sleeping pod, intended for airports, train stations, shopping malls, replacing conventional rooms in an open plan space, or even directly on the street - for 15 minutes and up, wherever people will pay to sleep. This unit is the stripped down Hostel Edition of the patented Sleepbox concept, offering a minimum of services: electricity, light, ventilation, and a bunk bed with clean sheets.

Trial units of the Hostel model are presently installed in Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport. Construction is laminated moisture-resistant MDF on a wood frame.

The full-featured version (see video) offers sound alerts, built-in LCD TV, and WiFi, and can custom outfitted to meet specific requirements. There is also an automatic bed sheet changing system that winds in a new section from a roll of sheeting. More at Arch Group. Photos: Arch Group & Ivanov Ilya.
