This is the Sleepbox, designed by the Russian Arch Group and installed during August at Aeroexpress terminal of Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow.
It is entirely made out of wood and the concept behind it it is been explained by the archtects: “Imagine the situation where you are in a modern city, you are not a local resident, and you have not booked a hotel. It is not a comfortable situation because modern aggressive cities give you no opportunity to rest and relax. If you want to sleep while waiting for your plane or train, you face many security and hygiene problems.We believe that urban infrastructure should be more comfortable. For this purpose we have developed Sleepbox. It provides moments of quiet sleep and rest without wasting time in search for a hotel.”
The Sleepbox attracked such a great deal of interes, the designers supports, that chances are first commercially operated boxes will be installed at airports and in the city by the end of this year.
