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.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m
    completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!
