9 Hours by Fumie Shibata.

The Nine Hours capsule hotel, designed by Fumie Shibata, is a hotel experience like none other. For approximately $55 a night, one can stay at this Kyoto, Japan hotel that can only be described as out of the ordinary.

The layout is efficient, with a mostly white interiorcontrasting minimalistic signage, and fiber-reinforced plastic sleeping pods. That’s right, sleeping pods. After watching a quick video of the interior by Monocle, I’m very tempted to stay here.

There are a total of 125 capsules made of plastic and fitted with custom lighting. The pods look like they came straight out of a sci-fi movie. They have organic curves, built-in electronics, and a very moderna esthetic. The name, 9 hours, was conceived from the time it takes to shower (1hr), sleep (7hr), and relax (1hr).
