Designers Create Micro-Environment For Power Naps At Work

by • May 26, 2011 • Industrial And Product DesignComments (0)2051

Anyone who works long hours knows how painful it is to not have a comfy place to take a 20-minute power nap at work.  Design studio Kawamura Ganjavian’s solution to this problem came by way of the ostrich and a product that offers supreme comfort and seclusion without leaving your desk:

“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.”
