BACKGROUND
Sleep deprivation costs U.S. employers roughly $411 billion annually. That's double the value of the health and wellness industry.
While a wellness-focused workplace might offer a plushy gym stipend or nitro coffee on tap, taking a nap also improves memory, mood, and even problem solving skills.
The first American private nap room company, founded on the belief that napping is a critical part of wellness.
An 8' x 8' private nap room with a modular design optimized for napping, lounging, and meditation.
The opening animation transforms the o's of Sloomber into a pair of tired eyes ready to nap.
To help set nap goals, the initial onboarding process asks users about their sleep and work habits.
Locating a Sloomber is as easy as hailing an Uber.
The booking process lets customers reserve up to two hours of solitude on-the-spot or in advance.
Booking ends with Sloomber's tagline, "Good for You."

employee-facing app
sloom turnover process
Sloomber's internal app guides employees through the Sloom turnover process, which specifies each guest's preferences for spatial configuration, lighting, temperature, and alarm chime. Add-ons like a Google Home might be used to lull guests to sleep with guided mediations or music.
SCALABILITY
This case study imagined Sloomber as a sort of micro hotel for private nap rooms. As people warm up to the idea of napping, partnerships with co-working spaces like WeWork could also help to normalize napping and expand Sloomber. For both awareness, Sloomber could also locate in airports to reach people experiencing delays or layovers.
