This Private Nap Desk Is A Must-Have For Your Office

Taking power naps at work can often be a struggle since most office furniture aren’t designed with that in mind. For the most part, you can only use the table and the chair.

Studio NL, a Greek design company, just came up with a brilliant solution. This revolutionary furniture functions both as a desk and provides the user with ample nap space at the same time.

Afternoon naps will be much more comfortable with this unique desk. Described by Chillfy as a “space-saving prototype,” this furniture is “basically a bunk bed where the top is for your laptop and the bottom is a cozy place for naps.”

The designers shared:

“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. 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.”

Want to preserve your privacy as you doze off? Well, Studio NL has you covered with that since this desk comes with “optional walls for extra privacy.”

According to desk designer Leivaditou, project “was an inspiration that came from exhausting working hours of my classmates that did not have an apartment close to the university.”

So far, no information has been given about the price and availability of the desks. Keep checking the official Studio NL website for updates.

Benefits of Power Naps

Around two years ago, Gizmodo published an article by George Dvorsky entitled “The Science Behind Power Naps and Why They’re So Damn Good For You.”

The post said that aside from alleviating our sleep deficits, power naps can also “boost our brains, including improvements to creative problem solving, verbal memory, perceptual learning, object learning, and statistical learning. They help us with math, logical reasoning, our reaction times, and symbol recognition.”

Dvorsky added that naps “improve our mood and feelings of sleepiness and fatigue. Not only that, napping is good for our heart, blood pressure, stress levels, and surprisingly, even weight management.”
