London Receives Public Nap Hammocks
Hypnos is a new project that aims to let city dwellers disconnect from the world in pod-like structures
The majority of people know the recommended amount of sleep to get per night is eight hours. With the distractions of technology, family life and general worries about the next day’s tasks, this is rarely achieved. Hypnos: The Architecture of Sleep, is a specially-designed space in London that aims to highlight the need for sleep by letting people catch up on missed hours that accumulate during the week.
Built as part of Clerkenwell Design Week 2015, creative workshop space Sto Werkstatt and design firms HASSELL and Draisci Studio have joined forces to create an architectural space that represents a ‘sleeperie’ for sleep-deprived Londoners.
