Convertible Napping Desk Helps You Sleep on the Job

This desk will never give you an excuse to return home after work. While the original design is meant to provide workers with a space for taking power naps during the day, this can easily turn into a trap. As a project for her master's degree at Columbia University, Athanasia Leivaditou designed and built a desk that turns into a napping station, which actually looks like a fairly comfortable bed that includes pillow, mattress, blankets and a TV set.

Researchers from the University of Michigan found that napping at work can actually increase productivity and can make the employee less impulsive or frustrated, and a variety of companies, especially in the tech industry, have implemented the use of nap pods.
