Tempur-Pedic Reinvents The Mattress. Again.

Enhancing its famous "TEMPUR® feel", creating a new design aesthetic, and adding features consumers covet, Tempur-Pedic reimagines its core collections

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With an iconic new design inspired by its Scandinavian roots and new features born of rigorous consumer research, Tempur-Pedic's refreshed collections extend the brand's reputation for innovation.

"As the Tempur-Pedic brand celebrated its 20th birthday last year, we set out to re-envision our beds, with a focused goal of making the best night's sleep even better," said Patrice Varni, Senior Vice President of Tempur Sealy Brand Marketing. "We sought a design resource who shared the innovative, game-changing DNA of our brand, and found one in the deeply creative, human-centered design firm IDEO. With the best of their talent and ours, we were able to marry form and function in a way that brings even more famous Tempur-Pedic comfort, body-adaptive support, and cool and convenient features that consumers really love."

More TEMPUR Benefits, Inside and Out
The refreshed TEMPUR-Contour and TEMPUR-Cloud® Collections incorporate core enhancements with rigorously tested preferred-feel results. More TEMPUR® material, and new ways of combining it, amplify the benefits of Tempur-Pedic technology, including its adaptive alignment and support, minimal motion transfer and pressure-relieving comfort for less tossing and turning, which all add up to even better Tempur-Pedic sleep.

Wrapped around the improved "insides" is a cover offering more than beautiful design.  "We really wanted to delight consumers, so we spent a good deal of time talking to them" said Brent Pfister, Vice President of Tempur-Pedic Brand Product.  "Using those consumer insights, deep R&D focus, and the combined power of Tempur Sealy — we were able to develop smart, functional features that consumers (and retailers!) told us they absolutely love."

Those features include an integrated new SmartClimate System, that brings moisture-wicking benefits and cool-to-the-touch comfort, and the EasyRefresh Top Cover for a mattress that is always fresh and clean. 

EasyRefresh Top Cover — Simple to remove, wash and replace
The new removable top cover ensures that the mattress is always fresh and hygienic. A patent-pending, 360-degree zipper makes the process simple, and the covers fit into any standard-size washer and dryer. Designed for loft and durability, the soft fabric is engineered to last through years of use and washing. 

SmartClimate System — Moisture wicking, cool-to-the-touch comfort
Maintaining a comfortable temperature when you sleep is now a given with this two-part system. On the mattress's outer cover, a layer of moisture-wicking fabric draws moisture away from the body. Plus, the inner cover includes a special treatment for cool-to-the-touch comfort.

Design refresh— Iconic grey color, sophistication throughout
Now the beauty of a Tempur-Pedic mattress matches the advanced technology on the inside. An upholstery fabric in a sophisticated shade of grey delivers a more luxurious look to the sides of each mattress, and coordinates with perfectly matched foundations and adjustable bases.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
