Softmachines’ Synthesizer Pillows are Soft and Don’t Make a Sound

Some of you guys might think that the sounds of electronic synthesizers are anything but relaxing. But here’s a way to have synthesizers all around you while you’re chilling, and you can be assured they won’t disturb your rest.

I absolutely love these handmade pillows from Gwendolin Tägert of SoftMachines. They look just like retro synths and drum machines. The series includes classics like the Roland TR-808, the TB-303 Bass Line, and the TR-909 Rhythm Composer.

The Roland machines fairly large (around 23″ wide), detailed with hand-cut felt, dimensional knobs, and cool stitching details. But they’re also quite pricey, selling for about $140 to $160 (USD).

But if you can’t afford that, it doesn’t mean you won’t be able to snuggle up with some synths anyhow. That’s because SoftMachines also makes these screen-printed mini-pillows based on Casio, Moog and Arp mini synths. These sell for appx. $34 (USD) each, which makes them much more affordable. There’s also a set of three available for about $83.

Last, but certainly not least is the Minimachine, based on the classic Mini Moog, and selling for about $49.

These are the perfect gift for that electronic music fan on your holiday shopping list, and you can find them all over on Softmachines’ Etsy shop now. And if pillows aren’t your thing, they also make some awesome retro synth laptop sleeves.
