The Sleepbox is an architectural concept by A Goryainov and M Krymov. It’s kind of like a little apartment, except more mobile, or an alternative to sleazy rent-by-the-hour motels. Equipped with built in LCD TV, ventilation, wi-fi, electric sockets and a bed which changes its own linen, the idea is for users to rest and recharge without expending excess time and money hunting for a hotel.
