Russian architects Arch Group have completed the first of their tiny hotel rooms for napping at airports.
The Sleepbox unit at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport contains two beds and can be rented for between 30 minutes and several hours.
The pod is equipped with LED reading lamps as well as sockets for charging laptops and mobile phones.
This booth is constructed from ash-veneered MDF, although future units could instead be made from metal or glass-reinforced plastic.
In countries with a warm climate, Sleepbox can be used outdoors.
Sleepbox’s main function is to afford a restful sleep. However, depending on location, it can be equipped with additional features.
Available options include:
- Matted film on windows with changing transparency
- Mood lighting – LED lamps with changing light colors
- Built-in media block (TV, touch-screen monitor)
- Wi-Fi router
- Alarm, intercom
- Safe deposit box
- Built-in payment station with magnetic keys
