  • Intersection: Glo Pillow by Ian Walton and Eoin McNally

    Well-being, Industrial Design

    Untitled-1_432_

    The glo Pillow is an alternative to the traditional alarm clock. It was designed with teammate Eoin McNally in response to a brief to create a product which helps to combat the pressures of a "24 hour" lifestyle.

    The pillow uses an LED fabric substrate below the surface to wake the user using light. This substrate also functions as a display, showing the time on the pillows surface using the grid of LEDs below.

    40 minutes before the pre-set alarm time the pillow begins to glow and gently brings the user out of sleep. This natural waking process helps to set the circadian rhythm or "body clock" and results in more healthy sleep/wake patterns.

    I already posted a different intersection to my blog but i like this product alot
