The Sleeping Pod is a compact living unit, developed by the Yazdani Studio of international design firm CannonDesign, that will serve as compact living spaces for the University of Utah's Lassonde Studios. A total of 80 pods will be included in the Lassonde Institute's hacker space.

The Sleeping Pods are built from interlocking plywood with fiberglass outer shells. They are equipped with hook-ups that can be plugged into the air conditioning, electricity and water connections. The units can be shifted around if needed using a container dolly or pallet jack.

The standard layout version of the Sleeping Pod offers room for all the elements of a typical dorm room. This project proves that stylish compact living is absolutely achievable without compromising on qualify of life, and indeed while boosting it.
