It has probably happened to you.
You have been at an event, school, a social gathering or an art fair.
Your face is tired from communicating with others IRL and your body is tired from standing up straight.
You take out your phone to check your e-mails or likes and find your body instantly slumping over your device, text-neck at a record high degree.
The human body slumped over their phone in public needs to be addressed at this critical moment in time.
With new research indicating that smartphone users spend an average of 4.7 hours on their devices daily, one must wonder why there has not been an increase in production of physical structures that will help support the human body in this journey to connect globally through their phone.
Slumpies are a post-posture sculptural solution that leans towards an idea of function, relieving the human form of the duty of supporting it’s own neck while acknowledging our ever-increasing relationship with mankind's best invention.
