Fancy sleeping in a pipe?

Designed by Austrian art college graduate Andreas Strauss, these "hotel rooms" reminds me of the ubiquitous capsule hotels you can find in Japan. Made from large sections of concrete drainage pipes and measuring 2m in diameter, the pipes are roomy enough to accommodate a double bed and storage space.

For some reason this idea appeals to me. Maybe it's Hobbit ancestry, but it seems restful and inviting: a perfect place to read in bed.

I love it - I would just want something very obvious that would prevent rolling! A side or end window would be nice, too.
