Remember that Seinfeld episode where George Costanza had a custom desk built so he could catch a nap while working for the Yankees? Well, that desk is now a reality. NL Studio, a Greek architecture firm, created the “1.6 S.M. of Life Desk.” The desk is designed to break down into a bed for a quick nap.
Here’s how Athanasia Leivaditou, the inventer, described it:
The main concept was to comment on the fact that many times our lives are “shrinking” in order to fit into the confined space of our office. Eventually, I realized that each civilization may have a very different perception of things depending on its social context. For example, this desk could be used for a siesta or for a few hours of sleep at night on those days when someone struggles to meet deadlines.
It’s not available purchase yet, but if you study this closely enough, I think you may be able inspire your inner DIY.
