In a bizarre twist of reality that started as a dream in sleepy corner of Madrid, sets out to deliver sweet dreams globally and increasing productivity!
Renowned for a lack of shyness when it comes to a sneaky afternoon nap, it was the Spanish creative minds of Kawamura-Ganjavian in collaboration with Studio Banana Things who turned the Ostrich Pillow™ into a reality.
The Ostrich Pillow™ is set to become the must have item for the person who has everything!! Its unique design offers a cosy micro environment where one can take a break from the everyday hustle and bustle without compromising privacy or comfort.
Kawamura-Ganjavian had created a fabulous concept design but it was not until they took the product to Kickstarter for funding that the Ostrich Pillow™ literally flew out of their hands into media frenzy. Following the Ostrich Pillows™ extensive global media coverage, on shows such as; the Jonathan Ross Show, Alan Titchmarsh show, Loose Women, NBC news, Good Morning America, La Sexta, Jimmy Kimmel and many others. The Ostrich Pillow™ rapidly reached its funding target of $70,000.
The Kickstarter backers enabled The Ostrich Pillow™ to come to life through reaching the set target within 10 days and exceeded the set target by $125,094. This was not only amazing news for the Kawamura-Ganjavian but also confirmation there is a demand for innovation and creativity, even in these times of austerity.
Ali Ganjavian says: ‘It is thanks to Kickstarter and our backers we are where we are, in fact in many ways this is more their project than ours, I cannot thank our backers enough. This is really a case of turning dreams into reality.
The Ostrich Pillow™ is handcrafted in Spain with a combination of finest quality materials and commitment to excellence. Whilst the Ostrich Pillow™ has only been available to purchase directly from www.studiobananathings.com, demand for this amazing product has driven the team to launch their Russian site www.ostrichpillow.com + www.studiobananathings.com by the end of this year. The designers have also promised us exciting retail news for 2013. The Ostrich Pillow provides the ultimate in personal sanctuary and is destined to be the must have item for 2013!!!
