Pilo redefines the shape, texture and function of a pillow. Its shape resembles that of a stone, although the pillow, filled with so-called shape-memory polymer (memory foam), feels soft. Manufactured using ergonomic data, Pilo offers pressure relief for the nape of the neck. A special feature is the accompanying Dream Cloud app: a built-in, invisible speaker that works with low output impedance and without an external power source, creates gentle ambient background sound.
Statement by the jury
»With its electronic features, the Pilo pillow takes account of the demands of a technology-focused society without renouncing comfort.«
