Company said new airweave mattress is softer since its patented airfiber block is less dense but still as durable.
NEW YORK – Airweave is now offering a new mattress with a low-profile design that consists of 6 inches of the brand’s airfiber block, a plush pillow top layer and a removable outer cover.
The company said that sleeping on 2 inches of its airfiber, which is a highly resilient interwoven resin fiber block, can improve back support and breathability.
The new Airweave mattress comes in a modular three-piece design that the company said is a key design update. Unlike typical boxed beds, this mattress cannot be compressed due to the properties of the airfiber material. But, by dividing the mattress into three sections, Airweave said it developed a bed that ships quickly and allows for assembly within minutes.
The product development team said the new mattress is also softer since they made the new airfiber block less dense but still as durable.
The company also said the new mattress is also lighter in weight and thinner in size, making it easier to ship and carry. The polyethylene resin used to create the airfiber blocks can also be turned back into raw polyethylene and recycled into plastic items after its use.
The new Airweave mattress, which can be purchased online, will start at $1,400 and comes in a range of sizes from twin to California king.
Since its founding in 2004, Airweave has been developing new bedding items based on various sleep studies. Founder and CEO, Motokuni Takaoka took over his uncle’s fishing line company, experimented with different applications of the resin fiber used to create fishing line and discovered that the material was perfectly suited for bedding.
Since the company’s first mattress topper shipped in 2007, Airweave has expanded to a range of lifestyle, travel and technology sleep products, all made in Japan.
