Introducing Aubergine Pillow

The Aubergine Pillow affords you the comfort you hunger for, on-demand. It is an inflatable pillow that plumps up generously in one puff, yet compacts small to be brought along with you.

Composition of an Aubergine

Nobody wants to run short of breath. It is an inflatable pillow that plumps up generously in just a puff.

Nobody wants to taste stale saliva. Puffing 2 inches away from the spout initiates the Bernoulli effect, using the surrounding air to multiply the volume of your breath. It’s a wind-wind!

Nobody wants a bad fit. Perfect size for maximum hug-ability, so nest yourself on our mount-ever-rest.

Nobody should break their necks. Sensual contours and a well-placed dimple to cradle your head and support your neck. Good support not only eliminates the all-too-familiar head lolling and bobbing, but goes beyond that by stabilising your head for optimal on-the-go sleeping posture. 

Nobody wants drool stains. Dark coloured fabrics for maximum discretion and an instant dozing environment. Perfectly machine washable.

Nobody should be weighed down by a pillow. This sleeping pill deflates fast, rolls snug and compacts small.

About the team

Daydreamers by day, designers by night. We believe that comfort is one of our most basic human right, even if we are on the go.

The Aubergine Pillow is a collaborative effort of 3 passionate Industrial Designers from Singapore. With a lighthearted outlook to life, we take delight in constructing solutions for a comfy-er, fun-er and happier life. And we crave sleep, just like you. It thus seemed like a natural progression for us to tackle this issue of obtaining comfort on demand, while of course, addressing the stuff that people don’t like to talk about, like drooling.

Dream with us

For this to be more than just pillow talk, we need your help! If you share our vision of a world where comfort deserves to be in our hands, join us on this journey. Together, let’s make this happen.

Timeline

After many rounds of prototypes and testing, we moved on to making The Aubergine Pillow closer to reality. We prototyped with many materials, shapes and sizes to finally achieve a design that we are proud of. We moved on to refine every last detail, and crafted the very first Aubergine Pillow in our very own studio. Most importantly, we persistently worked according to the feedback received from YOU, the local community. Now, we are ready to bring it to market with our manufacturer.

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately, running a business comes with unpredictable risks. We disapprove of over-promising, so here are a few potential issues that may arise.

Manufacturing is an arduous process. The process we are currently employing is relatively new for the type of fabric we are using. As such, this may result in delays in completing the product to a level of finishing and quality desired. In saying this, we guarantee that we will have capabilities to properly manage this risk, appropriately.

If there is ever a hiccup along the way, we will be completely transparent with you, because without you guys, Aubergine Pillow would just be a dream. We will work hard to meet all deadlines, get rewards to everyone on time, and keep you all up to date along the way. Thank you so much for your support!
