공항뿐만이라 사람들이 많이 모이는 역사, 전시장, 쇼핑센터 그리고
숙박시설 등의 장소에서도 유용하게 사용 될 수 있을 것 같다.
이와 같은 작은 아이디어는 비행기를 기다리거나 환승을 위한
승객들에게 편안하게 쉴 수 있는 공간을 제공한다.

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.
The Sleepbox concept was the most popular story on Dezeen back in November
2009 and received over 100 comments – see our earlier story here.
Imagine the situation where you are in a modern city, you are not a
and you have not booked a hotel. It is not a comfortable
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.
this purpose we have developed Sleepbox.
It provides moments of quiet sleep and rest without wasting time in search for a hotel.
Possible locations for Sleepbox include:
- Railroad stations
- Exhibition centers
- Public and shopping centers
- Accommodation facilities
In countries with a warm climate, Sleepbox can be used outdoors.
Sleepbox allows everybody in unforeseen circumstances to spend a night safely
and inexpensively or simply to kill a few hours without leaving the luggage.
Sleepbox is a small mobile compartment (box) with a 2.5×1.6m base and
One of its main advantages is its ability to be installed in the airport “clean” zone,
just in front of the gates. This is
precisely the area where travelers have to spend hours
waiting for their delayed flights or transfer.
Currently we offer one-, two-, or three-bed Sleepboxes, which can be
made of MDF (wood),
metal, and glass-reinforced plastic. Sleepbox allows
from 30 min to several hours of paid use.
The price varies depending on the number of hours in use: the more the user pays for, the less it costs per hour.
Sleepbox base features include ventilation and sockets for notebook and
mobile phone chargers.
Space for luggage is under the bed, and each bed
has a nightstand.
In addition to general lighting, Sleepbox has built-un
LED reading lamps.
Windows are equipped with electric-drive blinds for privacy.
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
In mid-August 2011, the first Sleepbox was installed at the
of Sheremetyevo International Airport, Moscow,
It represents the base version made of MDF with a natural ash-tree veneer.
This Sleepbox attracted such a great deal of interest
and big companies that chances are first commercially operated boxes will be installed
at airports and in the city by the end of this year.
