Once Upon a Dream Sleep Unit by Mathieu Lehanneaur For Veuve Clicquot

Cool Idea: Once Upon a Dream

Veuve Clicquot has commissioned French designer Mathieu Lehanneur to design a bedroom chamber for Hôtel du Marc, its guest house in Reims, France, which helps people recover from jetlag as quickly as possible. A nod to founder Madame Clicquot who was herself an insomniac, "Once Upon a Dream," as it's called, soothes guests to sleep by enclosing the bed with automatic curtain closure, dropping the room temperature gradually, automatic light dimming, and blocking out external sounds with relaxing, low-volume white noise. When the guest awakes, the final chapter includes gradually raised temperature and increased lighting, leaving the user feeling refreshed. The design features are based on physiological studies by Lyon-based sleep specialist Dr. Alain Nicolas, who found that "going to sleep is like stepping off into another state, sifting down into consciousness by successive stages."

Interesting, right? Would you like to have one of these sleep units in your home?
