Mobile nap truck coming to Dubai

IKEA making dreams a reality with power nap truck travelling across the UAE

Yes, you read that right, a dedicated truck for napping has been launched by IKEA, and is currently making its way around the UAE.

To help make sure you’re getting your fair share of 40 winks, the Swedish furniture brand has created a mobile chamber in which you can have a 20-minute power nap – you know, in case the day just gets too much.

IKEA says too many of us don’t get enough sleep, and that we need a lot more. It’s all based on research conducted in the UAE earlier this year, in which one in three of us (out of 4,600 polled), said we miss out on a number of hours of sleep per night, and that we’d like to reclaim about two-and-a-half hours’ worth of sleep every year.

So, between Thursday February 22 and Tuesday March 6, the IKEA Nap Truck (really) is helping us all get a bit more kip. We’re just hoping they change the sheets…

Touring through Al Ain, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, you can find a nap truck near you in a wealth of places across the city, open every day from 10am until 10pm.
