This padded, dome-like structure fits over the head, face, and neck. An opening on the front exposes the mouth and nose (for breathing comfort). Two arm holes at the top support a user's arms when their head is resting on a table. By shutting out light and sound, the pillow offers users privacy when sleeping in an office cubicle, airport lounge, or other public place. Designed by Studio Banana.
