Jul 18 2007The Pillowig


Designer Joo Youn Paek put together the Pillowig, which is exactly what it sounds like: a wig made out of a pillow. And contrary to popular belief, this is definitely 100% the most useful thing you will ever own.

It's art- the creator's intention is to create the most useless, absurd invention imaginable.

i love the look on her face, she looks so excited and happy to be wearing it :D

Haha the website is priceless.
All the people in a line with Pillowigs looking oh SO happy about it

total aphrodisiac

In a pillow fight she can go and head-butt people.

What WILL they come up with next?...

"Pillowig" is hand made wearable pillow comforting trieness of people in daily lives, enabling users to sleep comfortably whenever and whenever they’d like. When user test is done in public spaces - subway, airplane, library, class room and laundromat, viewers commented: “I would like to have it for my trip.”, “Very funny.” “This is practical, but a laugh, too." I made 50 limited editions and sold 47 pieces at the exhibition of the work and gained “Pillowig” fans. Two months later fans did a group performance piece at the Old Palace, Seoul.

I think I'll order one...after all I am really sick of all this "trieness" I feel all the time and can't wait to sleep "whenever and whenever" I want.

Now that's what I'd call a real 'bed head'. LOL!

An attempted smothering gone terribly wrong. McCartney had no idea Yoko slept on her stomach.

Reason she looks so pissed off and ugly?

She never saw/heard my bulldog face slam coming! Her helmet cushioned the impact on my hand and wrist nicely though. BOO-YAH!

Amy, you are what!? Sick of "Trieness". Listen honey, with me, you don't have to try... you can always succeed!

Yeah..(just in case) I know she was quoting from the source site…. =P

rofl at 10.

and if anyone wore this in public, they'd be beat up.
That thing wouldn't help at all, either. Unless it covers the face...

Finally help for Narcoleptics!!!

#6: LOL

PS: don't be so surprised of the pillowig. This dude made even worse (or better?)


^ The yacht bath was admittingly pretty cool.
The rest of it was stupid and useless. A double-sided helmet? Give me a break.

#6 - Noice. Although I would hope in a pillow fight ALL the girls were wearing these. And lingerie. And it all happens in slow motion. And one of their pillowigs would tear open, feathers come flying out and...

to bad if u fall face first instead of backwards

you can tell the comfort level from her face.....

what the picture doesn't show however is that the pillow is filled with needles insted of feathers....

yeah. you just fall asleep there old man/lady.... i'll be the one awake who is stealing your purse. honestly, who falls asleep in public? bums.... that's who

well she'd be comfortable on the train on her way home :D
