Finally, Someone Designed an Airplane Seat Headrest That Actually Looks Comfortable

Current airplane headrest designs do little more than leave you with an irreversible case of bed head (minus the actual sleeping part of the process). A Dutch industrial designer named Manon Kühne has graced us all with a headrest we can only hope will become a regular airplane feature. In fact, we haven’t been this excited since someone fixed the middle seat by staggering the seat set-up. The fact that this headrest design looks comfortable isn’t even the best part–thanks to a set of wing-like arms on either side, you can slumber somewhat privately.

Aptly named “HeadRest,” the design recently came out on top of the University category of the 2016 Crystal Cabin Awards–an annual program celebrating innovations in airplane features. The design was Kühne’s thesis project, created with help from the Human Factor’s and Ergonomics Lab at Zodiac Aerospace.

Compared to the plastic- or napkin-covered headrests we’re used to, this is every frequent flyer’s dream. The HeadRest’s arms open up a stretchy, hammock-like net to softly catch your jet-lagged head. Combine that with the inability for your seatmate to actually see your slack-mouthed sleeping face, and, well, this might be the perfect way to make economy worth flying again.
