Panasonic and designers Masaaki Hiromura and Takaaki Nakamura have created a capsule hotel which seems to be getting really big in the US. This futuristic hotel will soon be adopted as the norm in the West but has already become the rage in Japan.
While Japanese hotel industry has always suffered from space constraints and lack of large areas, they have turned the bane into a boon and have effectively begun to design hotels and rooms that are tiny but aesthetic in nature. It is almost small as a coffin and would come with a chamber for sleeping has been installed in the 9H facility in Kyoto. It also comes with a sleeping environment system and would soon be the norm for future hotels in Japan.
It would be displayed in the Axis Gallery in Tokyo from August 19th. It seems like a viable option but people outside Japan would rarely prefer to sleep in a “chamber” that resembles a coffin. Moreover, there are no space constraints when it comes to countries like US or Canada which is not thickly populated as Japan is. Nevertheless, it is a great idea if the hotel builders are lacking space for some reason.
