And it appears that Dutch designers Lieke Jildou de Jong and Alei Verspoor have done just that with Fold Inn, a clever bedroom in a box. It has everything you need including storage and bedding; It's perfect for the unpaid interns pulling all-nighters, or for squatters with style. Just fold out the walls and fold down the bed and as Sammy at Fastcodesign put it, you have "a way for Rem to get some REM."

It offers a temporary room to stay within larger or vacant spaces, or at any other desired location. Fold Inn can be used in a wide variety of situations, for example by people visiting an event, festival or conference where there are not enough hotels around, or at workplaces where people want to stay over for a night.

Or in the daytime; naps are healthy, but it is not a good idea to do it in public at your desk, especially if Toronto's Rob Ford might see it.

What it doesn't offer is acoustic privacy like some of the other sleep-at-the-office solutions we have shown. However this might be a great idea in lofts and live-work spaces where the little bit of visual privacy is all you really need. You can always stick a mini-ostrich on your head for a little more.

Another clever design for catching a few ZZZs at the office.
