Would You Spend $13,000 to Sleep at Work? featured image

The science behind sleep is a solid one. Without even looking at the hard statistics, it’s not too difficult to figure out that when you get more sleep, you get more work done the next day. And that always-enviable act of napping? Studies show that a daily nap of 20 minutes will boost productivity, restore alertness and heighten sensory perception—and that’s just a few of its benefits.

Which begs the question: Why aren’t more of us taking a quick doze at our desk?

MetroNaps EnergyPod has the answer. Its pod-like structure is specifically designed for a powernap in the workplace, and is the world’s first chair specifically designed for taking a brief nap, according to the company. It reclines, elevates the feet and just feels comfortable and “cushiony” once you get settled in—plus there’s the option to turn the sphere a bit to get total privacy that doesn’t feel stifling. You can also set an alarm, play some music and track your total sleep time over the days that you use it.


Of course, this modern sleep machine comes at a price that’s a bit more expensive than just closing your eyes: According to the company, each unit costs $12,985, plus shipping and installation.
