Meet Eye Mask: Total Blackout to Rest in Pure Comfort

The first 3D-ergonomic eye mask with a perfect fit to help you switch off.

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and wellbeing — it's as important as eating, drinking, and breathing. It lets our bodies repair and replenish themselves, and gives our brains time to consolidate memories and process information. Sleep deprivation is linked to health issues like obesity, a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, and heart disease, among others.

A good night's sleep involves both sleep quantity and sleep quality, and light is one  crucial factor. Our brains are hard-wired to associate darkness with sleep, and in the absence of light, they produce more of the “sleep hormone” — melatonin. When light is present,  it can destabilize the circadian rhythm — the biological clock that regulates wake-sleep patterns. Research shows that closing your eyes isn’t enough; your eyelids can’t block out enough light.

We heard time and time again from members of our community that poor sleep and light exposure was a problem. So we got to work tackling the problem and set out to develop a modern eye mask that would fit the bill — a soft, ergonomic mask that could block light and stay put. The result? Eye Mask.

Eye Mask

Eye Mask is the first truly 3D-ergonomic eye mask, designed with the three-dimensional features of the face in mind. It fits all head sizes and face types, providing a 100% blackout experience in total comfort. Constructed with a combination of high-quality, lightweight materials, Eye Mask provides a breathable, soft, and cozy experience.  

Switch off in any situation

Eye Mask has been designed to provide a cozy blackout sensation — no matter when and where you use it.

Eye Mask on bed

Bedtime

Nighttime is an important time for Self-Care. Getting sufficient rest each night allows us to wake up refreshed, ready to face the day with a rested body and mind —  prepared for whatever the day has in store. But finding a  dark environment optimized for good sleep isn’t always easy — whether it’s light from a street lamp, the glow of your phone screen, or your partner's bedside lamp, light is always leaking in. 

Eye Mask blocks out invasive light and keeps you comfortable in any position — whether you sleep on your side, back, or stomach —  thanks to its 3D-ergonomic design.

Traveling

It can be challenging to get a good night’s rest when you’re on the road. Finding a comfortable posture is tricky, and light and noise make constant interruptions. 

With that in mind, we designed Eye Mask to be compatible with headphones or earplugs. You can add or remove earplugs or headphones without removing Eye Mask, giving you peace and quiet and eliminating outside disturbances.  With the  included travel pouch, you can carry Eye Mask with you wherever you go — and switch off anytime you need. 

Eye Mask at work

Workday power nap

Science has shown us that short naps of about 15 minutes during the day provide a productivity boost. They can help us recharge, improve the learning process, and help us retain information better. But most workplaces are not optimized for  sleeping.

To provide the best napping experience, Eye Mask provides total blackout — even during the day. It’s lightweight and portable, making it an easy addition to your office bag.

Eye Mask while meditating

Meditating

To achieve maximum concentration during meditation, it is always good to eliminate external stimuli. Light is no exception, but sitting for a long time with your eyes closed can be tiring, and can sometimes cause even stress.

With its three-dimensional design, Eye Mask gives you enough space to keep your eyes open and still experience total darkness, so you can relax your facial muscles and focus on clearing your mind — distraction-free.

Innovative design process

We worked intensively with different materials and designs until we achieved a unique product capable of providing the best-quality light-blocking properties. Each new prototype marked another step toward a functional, comfortable and universal Eye Mask. You can learn more about the design process here.

Total comfort to rest in pure blackout

With an innovative 3D design and ergonomic construction with high-quality materials, Eye Mask is the perfect solution for those moments when you need to disconnect in total blackout. Use it in bed, at the office, while traveling or meditating, and make rest a key part of your Self-Care.
