Ostrich Pillow by StudioBananaThings

View all 7 Photos

Ostriches get a lot of “bad rap” for burying their heads in the sand at times of distress. Ostrich Pillow changes all preconceptions simply through its functionality and the respite it offers, courtesy of the behavior of our fair-feathered friend. A creative and humorous accessory to the power nap, Ostrich Pillow is a soft, over-the-head pillow that provides a dark and quiet environment for a short wink amidst long work hours. Architecture and design studio StudioBananaThings is the force behind this product, which is undoubtedly a to-be essential at any architecture firm. The pillow provides a breathing hole as well as openings toward the top for one’s hands, and is wonderfully suited for those who make a habit of napping at desks and workstations. A little silly? Perhaps. Irresistibly comfortable? You bet.
