The Sphinx

Maker - Melissa Ortega

The Sphinx

Maker Story

Lounge Away

When you daydream about lounging around at the pool, beach or park, the idea is often more comfortable than reality. But with Melissa Ortega’s lightweight inflatable lounger, you’re just 12 breaths away from total ergonomic comfort.

Melissa’s Sphinx lounger comes in two pieces. The first is for your upper body. You can lay on your back or your stomach, and the Sphinx lounger perfectly cradles your neck and head. There’s even a chin dip for when you’re lying face down, so you don’t stress your neck.

The second piece is a multifunctional media holder that props up your book, magazine or e-reader. It has an internal compartment that you can fill with ice and drinks to use it as a cooler. Or, it will hold your keys, sunglasses and wallet if you want to keep the sand away from your personal items. The media holder also doubles as a bolster to support your knees.

A massage therapist, Melissa knows all about the importance of ergonomics. She originally designed the Sphinx for reading, but found it works great as a pool lounger, too. And the critics agree: When Melissa duct-taped her original design and took it to an inventor’s convention, she won an award for her innovative creation.
