A new project called KSEVT Hotel is designed to replicate the feeling of sleep in space, as reported by Dezeen magazine.
A group of architecture students has developed a conceptual “levitation suit” that allows guests to experience 3D sleeping as if they were floating in zero gravity.
Students from the AA Visiting School Slovenia created the concept to allow visitors to spend the night at the Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) in rural Slovenia.
The project, called KSEVT Hotel, involves suspending guests beneath a web of ropes and pulleys that allows them to adopt any position while sleeping. This replicates the feeling of sleeping in space – although in practice real astronauts tend to strap themselves in when sleeping to avoid getting numb limbs or bashing into things.
