The Kit Kat inflatable pillow: for sleepy students

Inspired by its famous motto “Have a break”, the chocolate bars brand invented this napping notebook. Students can inflate the cover as they would do with an inflatable mattress. This way, students can pick on their lost hours of sleep and can quietly and discretely doze off anywhere, whenever they feel like having a nap.
This campaign was run with JWT Brazil, generating a massive buzz and a lot of happiness amongst the lucky 50 fans that received a pillow book. A low cost solution to promote the brand to a young audience.

Sleep standing up

Ernesto Neto created this product / art installation that allows you to sleep standing up. Since humans have been sleeping in a horizontal position for quite a while so it’s not possible yet to tell what would benefit us the most. Doubts remain high that some falling could occur at any time with this position, but it’s at least worth the try right?
