Sluggish After Lunch? Take a Nap in This Transforming Desk


Power naps have been proven over and over to boost brain power and make you more productive at work. Unfortunately not many employers approve of on-the-job sleeping, but for those few lucky enough to have napping benefits, this combination desk and bed is perfect.

The streamlined modern desk bed was designed by¬†Athanasia Leivaditou of Studio NL. It’s a clever combination that starts with a sleek white desk. It opens up to become a semi-private resting place for after-lunch snoozes.

Slide the desktop back a bit, fold the back down inside the leg space to create the mattress and lower one side a bit, and the desk is transformed into a small bed perfect for a mid-day catnap – complete with an inclined pillow.

The interior of the desk even includes a small TV so you can fall asleep to your favorite movie or just recline while you watch a little reality TV and zone out for a bit. The desk bed could be great not only for offices, but for people who combine living and working in tiny apartments.
