So to the first of our Mañanarama exhibits.
The idea for the Ostrich pillow-helmet originated in Spain, and the joy of library siestas. Designed by Key Portilla-Kawamura and Ali Ganjavian of Studio Banana, and crowd-funded through Kickstarter, it promises naps cocooned from external noise and the mocking laughter of passers-by.
Despite making the wearer look like the awkward lovechild of the Scarecrow and Admiral Ackbar, the original hand-crafted Ostrich retails at £64.99—and has been featured in every outlet from Glamour to the Financial Times.
‘Power-napping improves productivity by 34%,’ promise the Ostrich’s creators. ‘Metamorphose into a walking bulb of garlic,’ say others.
