Sleeping Pods Help Office Workers Take A Nap Break [Pics]
A new piece of office furniture will help staff to refresh their eyes and revitalize their minds.
French designer Marie-Virginie Berbet has come up a modern capsule that is especially created for office workers. Inside the CalmSpace contains a single mattress where users can program naps anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes. Berbet explains that a user shouldn’t exceed 30 minutes as “you can fall into deep sleep, so the awakening is hard and you lose the benefit of a nap.”
The pod includes soft, colorful ambient lighting that helps the user to fall asleep, and then slowly wake them up again when allocated time is reached. The office furniture is designed to make “the idea of sleeping at work acceptable and even obvious thanks to cumulated scientific data and a relevant sound and light device was crucial to overcome cultural barriers.”
The product was revealed at the Orgatec trade fair in Cologne, Germany last week. Browse through more images of the sleep capsule below:
