A speculative research dealing with the biological and  economical importance of sleep.
Inspired by Beatriz Colomina’s essay “24/7” (available here), the project materialises a collection of objects coming from a near future scenario, where the society will acknowledge and integrate sleep in working contracts and everyday routines.

Nowadays, the concept of labor permeates all aspects of human activity. Human and machine, work and play, private and public, day and night converge.
As a consequence, the fluidity between work and leisure will be more and more studied and applied. Many companies already provide sleeping pods in the office to maximize productivity.
How everyday objects could embody these contemporary developments? Which stories will they keep telling?
In the context of a punkarchaeology, the project draws a series of fictional Things commonly associated both with the office and the home.
