The Sleepbox – a small and safe cabin
Those that travel often know how tiresome and difficult it can be to have to sit for hours waiting for a delayed plane, train, etc. It’s particularly annoying because sometimes there’s not enough time to even bother finding a hotel and yet you desperately feel the need to rest and catch some sleep, even for a minute. Of course, a seat in the airport is not the place for that.
It’s exactly for situations like these that the Sleepbox was created. Designed by Russian based studio Arch Group, the Sleepbox provides you with a safe environment where you can relax or catch a little shut eye. It’s a creative way of solving the problems we’ve just discussed. But what exactly is the Sleepbox?
Well, it’s a small cabin space and it can be found in areas such as airports, railroad stations and even in hostels. They were designed as a small safe place and a comfortable environment where travelers can find some rest while waiting for their plane or train. Inside the cabin they can find two beds and storage for the luggage. There are also outlets so you can recharge your batteries as well as those of your phone or laptop. The Sleepbox also has a TV and fold-out tables. The best part is that it also locks so you don’t have to worry about your safety.
The original Sleepbox was made of plastic and has an automatic linen changing system. However, the concept has been modified and improved. These cabins can currently be found in Moscow, Russia and they’ll probably gain more popularity with time. They can be rented for periods between 15 minutes and several hours. The concept is ingenious and comes to solve a problem that people have had for a very long time. Now the solution is finally here.
