Paper Fortress of Solitude for Ridiculous Portable Privacy

We all have our ways of dealing with screen glare, but this is a particularly eye-catching one. The Veasyble Privacy Shell is a collaboration between a whole mess of people:¬†illustrator Gloria Pizzilli, designer Arianna Petrakis, model Adele Bacci and singer Ilaria Pacini. It’s meant to provide a small measure of privacy in an otherwise-intrusive world by covering your head (and in the case of the larger models, your lover’s head as well) with a paper accordion-like tube.

It seems kind of counter-intuitive to call something this strange-looking a “privacy” shell since it would obviously attract more attention than it would repel. But when you’re desperate to hide your face from the cruel, cruel world, putting a weird paper mask/tube thing over your face might be the perfect way to convince people that you’re too crazy to mess with.
