SLEEPBOX – relax or sleep in an airport/train station etc. while you wait

You want to relax or take a nap in a secure and clean environment while you’re waiting for your train or plane? Now you can do that in a SLEEPBOX.

The concept is developed by the Russian team at Arch group and it was originally created for hostels with many beds. The model is now to be used in airports for it provides the necessary comfort for a traveler.
SLEEPBOX is in fact a cabin. Inside, a traveler will find, as we find out from the official website,  “a ventilation system, sound alerts, built-in LCD TV, WiFi, sockets for a laptop, charging phones. Also under the lounges is a place for luggage”.

“The main functional element in it is a bed 2×0.6 m., which is equipped with automatic system of change of bed linen. Bed is soft, flexible strip of foamed polymer with the surface of the pulp tissue. Tape is rewound from one shaft to another, changing the bed. If a client wants to sleep in maximum comfort, he can take the normal set of bed linen for an extra fee. ”

There are many possibilities to use SLEEPBOX. The cabin is suitable for different locations such as
– Railroad stations
– Airports
– Expocentres
– Public and shopping centers
– Accommodation facilities

As the people at Arch group point, “in countries with warm climate SLEEPBOX can be used on the streets”.

What do you think about this concept? Would you stay in a SLEEPBOX for a while?

    Yes! I love this idea! Especially for noisy, crowded airports. It would be such a relief to be able to shut out the rest of the world for a little while.
