The Real Power Nap

Written by Thomas Baekdal | 2012-02-13 12:10:08

As I'm writing this it's Monday. You probably feel a bit tired and have a desperate need for a power nap. But how can you do that with all that light and noise all around you?

The answer is the 'Ostrich' by Kawamura Ganjavian - a sleeping bag for your head :)

Working patterns are constantly evolving. We gradually spend more time in our working environments, and this in turn means that we often need to make work and rest fully compatible within the same space. Some cultures have assimilated this concept more naturally than others, but in general the workplace has rarely adapted to this new working-resting paradigm.
OSTRICH offers a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease. It is neither a pillow nor a cushion, nor a bed, nor a garment, but a bit of each at the same time. Its soothing cave-like interior shelters and isolates our head and hands (mind, senses and body) for a few minutes, without needing to leave our desk.
