“I love a good nap. Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning. ” A classic quote from George Costanza on Seinfeld. Recall the episode where he builds a little nap area under his desk. There was space for his blanket, alarm clock, even a cup. Face it. Few of us get enough sleep. Napping anywhere sure would help on certain occasions.
Welcome to your new napping buddy, Ostrich Pillow. I’m guessing the picture might have gotten your attention. But seriously, if you have ever napped in a public place you know the challenges of a comfortable environment. Kawamura-Ganjavian, an architecture and design studio developed the concept and successfully finished their Kickstarter fundraising earlier this month with $195,094 (on a $70,000 goal). Studio Banana THiNGS is now producing and selling it. But what exactly is Ostrich Pillow? A combination of a pillow, cushion, bed and garment in one. The dark interior gives a little break from the world. Ostrich Pillow literally isolates you from the outside world once you slip it on. Tuck your hands in too if your surroundings allow. It enables you to power nap virtually anywhere. The product is machine washable too. Ostrich Pillow sells for $80 (plus shipping) on studiobananathings.com and is available to ship in the US, UK and Europe. So for those days where the need to nap takes over, look to Ostrich Pillow to give you a mini reprieve from the world.
