2. Benefits of power naps? 

Did you know that a power naps of around 20 minutes increases productivity by more than 30%? Seeing as we all spend more and more time at work / in front of a computer screen or in transit, we thought why not create a device that helps you disconnect and dream for short periods of time. That’s how the OSTRICH PILLOW came to life. 

3. Seriously, can I use Ostrich pillow anywhere? 

Have fun and rest anywhere! All you have to do so is choose a place to nap, slip into your Ostrich pillow and you’re set to go. We have tried it in airports, trains, aeroplanes, libraries, at the office, on a sofa and even on the floor and it’s really wonderful! Take it to the beach or skiing if you like and send us your pics! We love to hear about your Ostrich naps! 

4. Who we are? 

We are Kawamura-Ganjavian, a young architecture and design studio that focuses on observing and understanding contemporary human needs. We believe that sleep is one of the most basic human essentials and due to our life styles, our traditional methods of sleep have had to change, Our dream is to improve the world through our environment and products, even if it is while snoring! OSTRICH PILLOW was one of the products we created and shared on the web last year, where we had an overwhelming positive reaction . We discovered that thousands of people around the world shared our need to nap and we just had to share our dream with you….

5. How does it work? 

It is simple straight forward and just intuitive, you just need to slip it on your head and voila! You are isolated to sleep, dream or even just think and relax. 

6. Where we're at… 

We’ve been working on OSTRICH PILLOW for one year, testing and exploring the perfect dimensions and materials to create the best possible experience for the nap. Now, we are ready to bring it to market.
