Lots of people can’t benefit from an afternoon nap at work from the simple reason that their offices don’t have space for nap rooms. Even though they might be aware of the nap’s beneficial effect on productivity, many business owners can’t afford a larger spaces for running their businesses.
Designer Athanasia Leivaditou of Studio NL, may have found a solution. The Greek designer created a product that at first glance looks like an ordinary desk, but within minutes, it transforms itself into a comfortable sleeping place.
The lid of the desk can be pulled in order for more space to be created, while the front facade lays down and constitutes the base and mattress of the bed. Moreover, the right facade can slope in order to offer you a comfortable headrest and the left side can be used for storage (you can put there a TV – if that’s what you need to fall asleep).
The prototype is made of wood, leather and plexiglass and took a month to design and build. Athanasia Leivaditou named this project a „1.6 square meters of life“ and confesses on Studio NL’s website that ‘’It was an inspiration that came from exhausting working hours of my classmates that did not have an apartment close to the university and they were putting chairs together in order to take a nap during the night at the graduate school’’. Later on, the designer realized her desk can be used ‘’for a siesta, or in interiors where there is lack of space or for a few hours of sleeping at night between deadlines’’.
Although many employees (and even employers) would definitely appreciate it, the nap desk is at its concept stage. We can only hope that an open minded manufacturer will embrace the idea and bring the product on the market.
