ImageThis Madrid based architecture/design conglomerate is set to revolutionize the dozing off at the office industry with Ostrich, the XXI century siesta device. 

OSTRICH is the name of this sleeping bag hood thingy, which according to the creators “offers a micro environment in which to take a warm and comfortable power nap at ease.”

Designed by Kawamura-ganjavian, OSTRICH “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.”

Currently operating from Madrid, Kawamura-ganjavian is an architecture and design studio founded in 2000 by Key Portilla-Kawamura and Ali Ganjavian.
