Ibis hotels prove that sleeping is an art
Ibis hotels will select a happy few to test a new kind of bedding connected via 80 sensors to a robot.
Ibis hotels will select a happy few to test a new kind of bedding connected via 80 sensors to a robot. The sensors will capture the guests’ sleep data to turn it into a work of art.
The mechanical arm will make a drawing based on the sleeper’s temperature, movements and noises. Waking up, the guests will discover the work of art they helped produce during the night.
The robot will, for the first round, be stationed in the public area of the Ibis Styles Paris Bercy hotel to chart the clients’ movements on canvas. The process will be filmed and individuals will be able to follow the experience via a live stream on Facebook.
A draw will offer a few Facebook Ibis fans the chance to see their sleep charted as a work of art. Those selected will receive a digital copy of the art piece inspired by their sleep cycle.
The Sleep Art experience will tour Europe, starting with Paris (October 8-23), then Berlin (October 26-November 11) and London (November 14-23).
