Every architecture student has done it: The all-nighter where you end up sleeping on or under your desk. (When I did it, it was under a traditional drafting table). Now designer Athanasia Leivaditou of StudioNL has brought a whole new level of comfort to the overnight in the studio with this clever desk that hides a bed. The designer writes:

In the competitive environments of the new Metropolis, work almost defines the purpose of existence. Physical, psychological and intellectual isolation has become a common phenomenon in the megacities. Our lives are shrinking in order to fit the confined space of our office: 1.6 SM [square meters]
