Sleepbox Offers A No-Reservations-Needed Micro Hotel
Russian architects Arch Group have created the four-foot-wide 'rooms' for travelers in need of a place to rest in public.
Thanks to Sleepbox, gone are the days of sleeping on a metal chair in an airport food court between flights. The Sleepbox is essentially what it sounds like: a pod just wide enough for a bed and a drop-down desk. The first of these pods, from Arch Group, has been installed in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, and can be rented for as little as thirty minutes up to a few hours. Arch Group envisions Sleepbox as a modern urban staple, and plans to set them up in other airports, as well as railroad stations, expo centers, large public shopping spaces, etc.
