Piece of Comfort

Sleep to Stay Sharp


High-pressure working conditions are common in the Netherlands. Employees don’t tend to take breaks and people often eat a sandwich at their desk. While it seems to be productive, it’s not very healthy and is cause for inefficiency.


Giving in to the naturally occurring afternoon-dip helps people recover, stay sharp, and be more productive. Research from NASA shows that a twenty-minute powernap increases your alertness by 54% and performance by 34%. Iris Muriël created “Piece of Comfort” a powernap bed to offer a space-saving solution for relaxation at work. Don’t let the daily stresses rule our lives. Let’s listen to our biological clock and incorporate a powernap in our daily routine.
