Sleepbox by Caspar Lohner (Kläusler Acrylstein AG)

Can human beings share a bed together? That is the question.

Well, the subject isn’t about our private bedrooms but how about sharing in the a public space. Lets say an airport, office, or other semi-public location. And what would we say about sharing the bed with strangers, in the effort of seeking temporary shelter, quiet, and possible sleep?

The SleepBox is the ticket then. It is a design by Caspar Lohner and was a piece produced by Klausier Acryistein AG, the sole distributor for HI-MACS in Switzerland. The point of the project was to demonstrate the qualities of the HI-MACS (LG Hausys) material and surround it with contemporary and “organic” design for human spaces.

It surely is a nice design. But would advocates of design in public spaces and weary travelers dwell in such artistic contraption? And would sharing that space with total strangers be something appetizing for the general public?

A beautiful expression, no doubt.  But human behavior says no. Who knows.
