Watching people awkwardly fall asleep on public transport has inspired Kingston University graduate Jisue Park to design clothes and accessories specifically for commuters.
Her creation is a three-piece Happy Napping collection: a Doughnut Jumper, Inflatable Scarf and Pillow Hat.
“Happy Napping started from riding on London’s public transport and observing the behaviours of the sleepy commuters and tourists,” she told design website Dezeen.
“This half-jokey, half-serious group of napping equipment is key for those tiring journeys home, preventing awkward neck positions and general discomfort. Tired Londoners – you’re welcome.”
The scarf can be wrapped around the neck or over the head and inflated when needed, while the Doughnut Jumper is ideal for couples who want to cuddle on a long flight or train journey.
And Jisue describes the Pillow Hat as a “new archetype of the common beanie” – for comfortably resting one’s head against window or seat.
“One of my final-year projects was inspired by people napping and the different positions and places they nap,” she told Dezeen. “Everyone had their own pattern, leaning on a window during a bus journey or a power nap at a work desk.”
