About this project
A Design Inspired by Infinity
How long is eternity? How does one quantify the unquantifiable? Infinity Pillow is an exploration between the function, aesthetics and emotions of a design inspired by infinity.
Infinity Pillow is not a regular loop, but it's in the shape of the Möbius strip. If you look closely you’ll notice it has a twist that creates a never-ending surface. This infinity concept inspired us to design a versatile pillow that can be used in endless possible ways when you twist and turn it.
Unlike regular travel pillows, you will want to use the Infinity Pillow everywhere! Here's why:
- COOL DESIGN: The little brother of the Forever Blanket, designed by the internationally renowned, interdisciplinary studio BCXSY for HUZI. Combining interaction, playfulness and comfort, the design invites you to take a break and start twisting, wrapping and have fun!
- IT'S A LIFESTYLE: Globe-trotting to your next adventures? Having a picnic in the park? In need of a power nap at the office? Just lounging on the couch on a Sunday? Infinity Pillow is a lifestyle accessory that invites you to relax and unwind anywhere and any way.
- VERSATILE AND PRACTICAL: Use it as a desk pillow, back support, a scarf, eye mask, keyboard rest and more...
- SOFT AND FLUFFY: It provides comfort to a whole new level, super soft and fluffy, like how all pillows should feel.
- 100% BAMBOO FABRIC: Made of eco-friendly Bamboo fabric and 3M™ Thinsulate filling, it is naturally silky smooth, and keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- STYLISH: The Infinity Pillow comes in 6 fashionable colors. No more unattractive U-shaped travel pillows.
- PERFECT FOR TRAVEL: Use it at home or on the go. It's very lightweight, so wrap it around your own bag or pack it in our custom designed pillow case.
Don't let it stop here. Create your own ways of using it!
SUPER SOFT 100% BAMBOO FABRIC
Infinity Pillow is made of 100% bamboo fabric and filled with fluffy, high quality 3M™ Thinsulate. You'll be amazed by how it feels because:
- SOFT AND SILKY SMOOTH: Gentle on the skin, it makes you want to stay wrapped up in it for as long as… well, forever.
- ECO-FRIENDLY: Made of all natural, fast-growing bamboo and sustainably treated without harmful substances.
- ANTI-BACTERIAL AND HYPOALLERGENIC: These are natural properties of bamboo fabric.
- BREATHABLE: Due to material structure, it stays cool in the summer and provides warmth in the winter, making the pillow a great all-year-round comfort.
- LONG-LASTING: The high quality 3M™ Thinsulate will stay soft and fluffy for a very long time.
- MACHINE WASHABLE: Yes!
Choose from six fashionable colors: Navy, Taupe, Off white, Apricot, Grey and Orange.
The design was first conceived back in 2007 by the Netherlands-based design studio BCXSY, as part of their FOREVER! presentation during the Design Week in Milan. The designers' experimental exploration into what it means for something to last forever featured various examples of how a design can define the indefinable through its function, aesthetics and emotions.
Only a couple of years later, again in Milan, BCXSY met Cindy from Huzi Design and a new exciting collaboration and design-development across continents and time-zones has begun! Following a long research and many rounds of prototyping, we've finally found luxuriously soft, sustainable and practical materials to go along with the infinity concept.
And like all Huzi products, the Infinity Pillow would be produced by a carefully selected producer with great attention to quality and details, showing much care to every single aspect of the product - from its maker to the consumer and the planet!
WE REALLY CARE.
Small details make a big difference and can show how much love and care we put into every single aspect, to make you proud owners (and us proud makers) of this great pillow!
- Utility and beauty are at the heart of every inspirational product we create.
- Happy people make happy products, so we carefully select our producers that put the greatest care into making them long-lasting.
- Each pillow is hand-sewn and finished with love, so that it can be in a never-ending loop. We want you to feel the warmth not just from the insulation, but also from the love and care put into it during its creation.
- Made for durability, the pillow is made of the highest quality materials and consists of 3 layers: 100% bamboo fabric on the outside, 100% cotton lining and 3M Thinsulate filling. A lot of extra time is spent on the way we sew the lining and the filling so that the pillow can retain its shape and fluffiness after every wash.
- Did we mention how amazing the 100% bamboo fabric is? Tailor made by our producer, its so soft and smooth that you can definitely feel the difference and want to stay wrapped up in it forever!
Note: If you pledge for the below rewards, the Forever Blanket will be sent as soon as the project ends so you can stay warm during the cold winter! And the Infinity Pillow will be sent in April.

Risks and challenges
We have already gone through many rounds of prototyping to perfect every single detail with a very good producer. Everything is ready and we can't wait to get you all on board!
From our first Kickstarter project "Dream Car", we learned a lot and managed to ship out the products after four months of the campaign. All the late night work was worth it when we received comments from backers telling us how much joy they have with our products. With this valuable experience, we're confident that this time will be a success as well!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
