At first glance, this pillow seems like each average anatomic pillow made of memory foam. But it is everything but not the average. This is the world’s most expensive pillow that will set you back the whopping US $ 57,535. Yes, you read that right. Neck specialist Thijs van der Hilst crafted the pillows using 3D scanning technology to determine the precise shape required and moulded them out of non-toxic Dutch memory foam. Each pillow is covered in hand-stitched Mulberry silk, Egyptian cotton, and 24-carat gold, while its zipper is studded with four diamonds and a huge 22.5-carat sapphire.
A Dutch physical therapist turned inventor has spent 15 years developing a tailor-made pillow that he claims will solve any sleeping problems.
“As a cervical specialist I used to advise my patients to buy a good pillow. But what is the best pillow for which patient, I asked myself. If there are three sizes of pillows available, which one would fit the best? As our feet are all different, so are our shoulder heights and neck lengths. And the sleeping position varies person to person.
Everyone is unique – so the pillow should be too,” Thijs van der Hilst said.
As whatever is luxury, this pillow requires appropriate packaging, so it comes in a custom-made Louis Vuitton case so you can take it everywhere with you. You can see the pillow at the INDEX Design Series at the Dubai World Trade Center next month from May 22 to 25.
