Sleep box

If you’ve ever been stuck in an airport for a few hours the idea of having a nice quiet private place to catch a cat nap sounds like a little slice of heaven. We found this Sleep Box concept interesting, as it tackles the idea of private space in public places being a designed and sellable commodity.
The sleep box would allow you plug in a laptop and charge your phone as well as catching a little shut eye. This harkens back to the idea of public telephone booths (which unfortunately no longer exist in most places) and being able to shut out the noise of crowded public spaces. This could be a very useful idea, but we imagine the hourly rate would be very high to discourage occupants from moving in for extended stays.

    in a back-to-back configuration (with an additional skylight) these pods could even be used for overnight stays IN the airport. they do look spacious enough for your luggage, so imho it shouldn’t be a problem to offer customers the option to stay in one of these if a flight has been canceled. considering europe’s latest experiences with vulcanic ash i’d rather stay in one of these than on a camp bed.

    If my flight got cancelled I’d much rather stay in a hotel, but this is certainly better than a cot ;)
