#PAUSE PILLOW / SNS Blocking Pillow

#PAUSE PILLOW

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2019

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2019

We are keep dealing with the problem of not letting the phone down in the bedtime which is the main part of FoMO syndrome due to the stimulation of the information that tease us not to take a break. This is the common phenomenon that teases our lives and there is a research about how badly it affects to our society. People lay their head down on the pillow to take a rest and try to fall asleep for tomorrow’s mindfulness. Therefore, we suggest the pillow that limits the SNS and smart phone by pressure sensor in the pillow when they lay their head down. People who habitually use their SNS regardless of their thoughts can take a break in peace.

We think we were able to win the prize because we’re sympathized from the judges and people on the project. It's an honor to be a winner. We wish a society where we can take the complete rest.
