The bed was created Russian designer Natalia Rumyantseva, and was built to give you the ultimate sleeping experience, all while replicating the starry night sky above you. The bed itself is shaped like a giant capsule, and has been outfitted with a high-tech LED lighting system along the top portion. The bed has also been equipped with a complete audio system, and aromatic dispensers to help you fall asleep comfortably. Forget tossing and turning all night, Cosmos will help you catch some Z’s within minutes of hitting the pillow.

If you’re gonna travel to Russia on some kind of crazy, Winter Olympics-inspired, find-yourself journey, jot down Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya as a place to stay. Russian studio Arch Group took an old 4-story building in Moscow (not far from the Kremlin), and filled it with these stylish portable sleeping capsules to create a hostel-like hotel with a unique twist. These mobile modules hold one or two people and are equipped simply with beds, LED reading lamps, and electric outlets. Showers and toilets are located on each floor, and the Sleepbox lobby features a reception area, information zone, and individual lockers. If claustrophobia sets in, there’s a few standard size rooms to stay in as well.


Maison Moschino Hotel.

Heading to Italy any time soon? If so, why not spend a spell at the newly-opened Maison Moschino? From its fluffy origami cloud light installations to its candy-themed chandeliers, it is surely a one-of-a-kind gem in Milan’s hotel-scape. Situated in the building which once housed Milan’s first train station, it is described by Rossella Jardini, the Creative Director of Moschino, as the “home and place of enchanted fairy tales.” The common thread connecting the rooms is a fairy tale theme because to sleep is perchance to dream, and dreams are fairy tales that we are allowed to experience first hand, the fables of a fantasy world that we have created. This is an alternate life in which we direct & stage the scripts of our very own play.

The hotel interior reflects Moschino’s distinctive style where the ordinary world is painted with a brush of surrealism.” 
Each room has a theme. The Petals suite has red rose petals dripping off the light fixture, and covering the bedspread. Everything in the room has a floral motif, based on the idea that “life should be a bed of roses.” Another room called Sleeping In Evening wear features a bed which is — literally — an enormous ballgown. The Sweet Room is exactly what it sounds like: a room decorated with dessert-shaped pillows and a chandelier which appears to be made entirely of baked goods. Other themed rooms include Wallpaper, Forest, Alice, Cloud, Ivy, Blue and Gold.

Maison Moschino officially opened on the 25th of February, with a star-studded night of fashion, music and incredible food. Serving as the venue for the Moschino CheapAndChic Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 collection, guests stood in a huge clear tent and drank champagne while they watched the show. Pixie Lott from Britain provided the runway soundtrack, while Italian icon Asia Argento spun records at the after party. The collection was fun, upbeat and didn’t take itself too seriously — like always.
