SLEEPBOX / Arch Group

Arch Group shared their innovative SLEEPBOX design with us.  Intended to provide a comfortable night sleep, the mobile 3.75 m2 unit can be located anywhere people need a place to rest or relax such as airports, train stations, shopping centers, or even in the middle of the streets. “We believe that urban infrastructure should be more comfortable for people,” explained the architects.  Rented for between fifteen minutes and several hours, the SLEEPBOX provides moments of quiet sleep and rest from the city as clients can rest on foamed polymer beds, which are equipped with an automatic system that changes bed linen once the client leaves. But a bed is not the only accommodation the SLEEPBOX provides.  The unit is also equipped with a ventilation system, sound alerts, built-in LCD TV, WiFi, sockets for a laptop, charging phones and space for luggage.   After clients feel refreshed and leave the unit, the automatic change of bed linen starts and the quartz lamps turn on.   Clients can pay for the time spent in the unit at a shared terminal, which provides the client with an electronic key.
