Michaelis Boyd designs 2019 Sleeper Bar

August 30, 2019

(UK) – Pop-up Sleeper Bar will be designed this year by Michaelis Boyd, the London and New York-based architecture studio.

Drawing inspiration from The Man Who Planted Trees, a short story by Jean Giono, which celebrates the power of the natural environment, working primarily in timber, the bar will be a study in sustainability; investigating the afterlife of the material through scale, layering, adaptability and recycling leading to creating a space that will cater to all walks of life, adjusting to the needs of each individual, making the bar a rich experience for each visitor.

“We are both really looking forward to designing the Sleeper Bar,” said Alex Michaelis and Tim Boyd, founders of Michaelis Boyd. “On our previous visits to Sleep & Eat we have been very impressed by the strength of the designs and the themes and we are excited to be adding our own spin this year. The theme of Social FlexAbility means we will be designing a dynamic and social hub for all this year’s visitors.”
