Greetings,

I would like to share with you the values we are committed to that have shaped the course of our company’s history. Today, as always, quality, know-how, and eco-friendly materials are the core of our philosophy. Our customers and our products are the heart of everything we do. It is my pleasure to present our product lines to you. Each one is specially designed and created in the Swiss artisanal tradition that defines Elite’s way of doing business. In a global, industrialised world, marketing messages and fashion trends often drown out the true value of high-quality products. At Elite, we have made “respect” the key word in everything we do. By respecting our partners, our customers, our collaborators, and the environment, we are helping to define new standards for the bed and furniture industries. Recent health studies support our philosophy. They show that the quality of our beds greatly influences our overall quality of life, and that when we inhale harmful chemicals released from our mattresses, these chemicals can be detected in our bodies and can be detrimental to our health. Because of this, Elite has positioned itself as an environmental innovator in Switzerland. The workmanship behind our mat- tresses is now certified by the EUROPEAN UNION ECOLABEL. At Elite, we do not see environmental responsibility as a con- straint. Rather, our environmental policy is an integral part of our commitment to sustainable development.

The EU Ecolabel certification represents our corporate philosophy and our commitment to protecting the planet. Please read on for more information about the Ecolabel and its relationship to the intrinsic quality of our mattresses. For as long as Elite has crafted mattresses, we have understood the importance of combining the finest natural materials, time- honoured production techniques, and the best of modern techni- cal innovations. These three factors allow us to offer exceptional mattresses that are customised for every body type, every size and space need, and every personal comfort preference. For all these reasons, our new collection blends our century of experience with our unwavering commitment to quality and our awareness of today’s economic conditions. Since each of our cus- tomers is unique, we are committed to developing a customised solution for each one of you. With the guidance of Elite’s trusted partners, we know that you will find the bedding that is just right for you.

On behalf of the Elite family, welcome!

our history: authentic, alive and true

1895: the 20th century had not yet dawned, but Jules-Henri Cail- let, a master saddler in Aubonne, Switzerland, was already pro- ducing mattresses that were renowned throughout the region. An astute entrepreneur, Caillet sought to blend the innate human desire for progress and innovation with the European tradition of high-quality traditional craftsmanship. For Jules-Henri Caillet and every Elite craftsman since, progress has involved finding the perfect mix of craftsmanship and efficiency while remaining committed to quality, the finest natural materials, and a love of beautiful things. Today, as in the past, Elite continues to manufacture the finest beds and mattresses by combining their skills and experience and selecting the highest quality natural raw materials.

The Elite model of mattress-crafting dates back to the 19th cen- tury, but we have also evolved into a 21st-century company. When Jules-Henri Caillet began producing mattresses, the average life expectancy was 44 years. Today many of us will live twice that long, thanks to overall health and hygiene improvements, includ- ing healthier and safer bedding. The advantage of a hundred-year-old company is that, while respecting traditions, each generation has built on the legacy of the one that preceded them, adding research and innovation that primarily benefits the customer. Our constant search for perfec- tion and love for what we do is a formula that has stood the test of time and one we are proud of.

At Elite, tradition, modern techniques and innovation combine to weave a story that is authentic, alive and true.

our philosophy IN THE HISTORIC TOWN OF AUBONNE, SWITZERLAND, CLOSE TO LAKE GENEVA'S SHORES, ELITE'S CRAFTMEN CONTINUE TO MANUFACTURE IN THE SWISS ARTISANAL STYLE, USING ONLY THE BEST NATURAL RAW MATERIALS TO BRING YOU THE FINEST HAND-MADE BEDS IN THE WORLD.

A HISTORY OF SLEEP choosing a mattress

Crafting a good night’s sleep From Job’s straw bed to the divan of Solomon to the palanquin crafted from a cedar of Lebanon for the brides in the Song of Songs, the mattress has always been associated with sleep. “Blessed be the man who invented sleep,” exclaimed Don Quixote. The modern word “mattress” comes from the Arab “matrah” and the “materasso” of Renaissance Italy. Historically, the Gauls appear to have invented a rustic mattress which became increas- ingly comfortable with the incorporation of horsehair and wool, then the addition of a webbing-based boxspring. Elite’s master craftsmen know this history and its lessons by heart. They know that although 21st century technology is pro- gressing at breakneck speed, the secret of a good night’s sleep still lies in selecting fine materials that are then meticulously hand-assembled. Of all the fine things we have access to, a good night’s sleep is still the most personal, and one that calls for a personalised solution.

A good night’s sleep begins in the master craftsman’s workshop. According to tradition, professionals prepare the natural materials, assemble it, and turn it into a beautifully made product. Elite’s craftsmen use their expertise to create your custom-made bed. Each mattress is a unique piece made with exceptional care in the tradition of fine workmanship.

These are the unique features of Elite beds and mattresses.

AT ELITE, WE CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

Which bed system is best to ensure you sleep well? Humans are unique in that we stand upright, placing our spines in an "S" curve position. This is optimal for movement but may lead to painful conditions such as upper or lower back pain, arthritis of the neck and spine, herniated discs, and other back problems. To avoid these health issues, we need a mattress that allows our spines to maintain correct alignment while we are lying down.

Too little support : causes rigidity of the muscles while they attempt (unsuccessfully) to position the spinal column correctly.

Too much support : increases compression of the vascular and lymphatic system in pressure zones and forces the spinal column into an incorrect position. Optimal support : by adapting section by section of the mattress to the body's anatomy when we are lying down, the right mattress allows correct support from an orthopaedic point of view and pro- motes relaxation of the vascular and lymphatic system on the pressure zones. When we cannot completely relax during sleep, our bodies can- not progress through the phases of deep (paradoxical) sleep. This can cause problems such as stress, a feeling of not being com- pletely rested, and slower response times. Our body position dur- ing sleep is a primary factor to consider when selecting the ideal mattress and bed base . The ideal system enhances the quality of our sleep and thus our quality of life.

Potential effects of an improper sleep position :

• promotes painful conditions caused by compression of the intervertebral discs on the nerves of the spinal column;

• prevents relaxation of the muscular system while it attempts (unsuccessfully) to position the spinal column correctly ;

• increases compression of the vascular and lymphatic system in pressure zones.

14 Elite Collection

CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU Our body shape, height and weight, and the position we sleep in (normally on our back or side, with our knees bent) determine the weight distribution on our body when we lie down. These factors are a good indication that standard mattresses and bed systems may be ineffective or even harm our long-term health and well- being. The support required from a petite woman is very different from that of a large man. Standard, one-size-fits-all sleep solutions too often lead to uncomfortable pressure points because they are not aligned with the anatomical zones they are meant to support.

An Elite bed offers the following qualities :

• correct support of the spinal column from an orthopaedic point of view

• relaxation of the muscular system

• improved circulation of the blood to allow cellular regeneration

• maintenance of ideal body temperature

• proper health and safety features

These considerations define Elites commitment to ensuring every customer's total and ideal comfort and support.

• the ability to erase the stresses of the day during a good night's sleep perfect comfort and a pleasure to sleep in

• A bed free from chemicals and VOCs

SLEEP WELL, LIVE BEAUTIFULLY

Choosing the right bed is an important decision that affects your health and well-being. The right mattress can allow you to get more of the right kind of deep, restful sleep. Since we spend almost a third of our lives in bed, we need to choose a good qual- ity mattress, a key component of sleeping well. There are several golden rules for choosing the right mattress. Firstly, we look at the ratio between your height and body mass. This is calculated by the weight of the sleeper per square inch of the mattress. The greater your height to body mass ratio, the firmer your mattress should be.

If you have a curved spine and prefer to sleep on your back, con- sider choosing a mattress that will allow your hips to sink into the mattress and support your lower back correctly. Age is another component. Young people are more comfortable with a firmer mattress. Our comfort needs change as we age, and we usually prefer a softer mattress. Below in the “Rhumaless” system images, we can see the pres- sure points on your body during sleep. Science, combined with our experience in perfecting sleep, goes hand in hand to help you choose the right mattress and ensure the best nights sleep.

Use the chart on the next page to help you find your height to body mass ratio.

We can get a clear picture of the best sleep options and the choices that we should avoid through these images.

If you sleep on your side, you probably need a softer, multi-zone mattress to lessen the pressure on your shoulders, chest and hips. This promotes the circulation of the blood and the cellular regeneration that accompanies it.

In the mattress on the left, the acceptable pressure zones are represented by cool colours. In the mattress on the right, the bright colours represent incorrect pressure.

The mattress on the left offers better sleep than the one on the right. Because we tailormake your mattress to suit your body and

personal preferences, we can recommend the one that will ensure the best sleep for you.

THE ELITE PROMISE 125 years of Swiss craftsmanship

Our wide range of mattresses, our experience and our know-how allow us to help you find the best mattress for your body type, personal preferences and sleeping habits. Couples often have very different body types, weights, heights or sleep preferences, making it difficult to find a mattress that suits both people. We have the perfect solution. Our "his and hers" option is a customised mattress solution with two different firmnesses in one mattress. This allows you to sleep together in independent comfort for a truly blissful night! We combine our century of experience and knowledge with the latest sleep technologies to take care of every customer's unique and individual needs.

tive sleep. This is a good reminder of the essential role that a good mattress plays in sleep quality and overall health.

The golden rule for good sleep: a good mattress.

How often do you hear people complaining about sleep problems and backaches? Remember that the right mattress can dramati- cally improve these symptoms. The mattress should give more where the pressure is the greatest, on the shoulders and the pelvis, and it should support the body in proportion to the user’s size. It is an incorrect assumption that there is one type of mattress that will suit everyone. The following pictures illustrate the different examples :

YOUR BED, AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR HEALTH

If you have trouble falling asleep or sleep poorly, you may search for various causes when your mattress could be to blame. A large-scale survey showed that we currently average 7 hours and 6 minutes of sleep per night. Another European survey found that half of the consumers say they change their mattress at least once every 10 years. This average is contradicted by industry figures, which show that most people replace their bed approxi- mately every 13 years. The work of a neurologist at the University Hospital Center in Montpellier, France, has shown that people sleeping in a new mattress enjoy an extra 53 minutes of restora-

PERFECTING THE ART OF A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP The risks of sleeping on a mattress that is too firm or too soft!

The right mattress support is essential for a healthy back. People with lower back pain are often advised to choose a firmer mattress. On the contrary, a mattress that is too hard should be avoided as it does not adapt to the spine's curves, the weight of the chest and the hips and allow the muscles to relax during sleep.

A mattress that is too hard causes poor positioning of the spinal column

A mattress that is too soft causes poor positioning of the spinal column

A bed that is too soft does not support the spine effectively. The heavier parts (shoulders, chest and hips) sink into the bed, and the position becomes uncomfortable. Since the body does not have enough support, the muscles and the spine contracts, and the body cannot rest.

A mattress that is too hard puts pressure on the body's soft tis- sue, affecting blood circulation and the spinal column's alignment during the night.

20 Elite Collection

THE PERFECT RECOMMENDED COMFORT AND SUPPORT

It is important to find a happy medium depending on your height, your weight, your body type, and especially your personal preferences.

Proper mattress, perfect alignment of the spinal column

Clearly, a person who weighs 45 kilograms does not need the same mattress as someone who weighs 120 kilograms. The example above shows the ideal support for the body at the different pressure points.

Elite has always been concerned with protecting the environment and clients’ health by using only the finest natural materials and non-industrialised production methods. We avoid all types of toxic products because we know that all the chemicals we inhale during sleep can remain in our bloodstream. The EU Ecolabel has been universally accepted in Europe for several years and set strict, clear rules. They include multiple cri- teria such as the product’s ecological features, its global impact on the environment, and the intrinsic quality of the product as measured by resistance and comfort tests. Everyone knows that an “eco-friendly” product is not necessarily a quality product! Consequently, it was quite a natural process for Elite to become involved in this endeavour and offer clients the guarantee of European ECOLABEL certification. WE ARE COMMITTED TO PROTECTING THE PLANET AND OUR CLIENTS

CERTIFIED CHEMICAL FREE EUROPEAN ECOLABEL

Created in 1992, the European Ecolabel is the only official Euro- pean ecological label available in all the European Union member countries. This Europe-wide ecological certification is based on the principle of a “global approach that takes into consideration the product life cycle from the extraction of the raw materials, the produc- tion, the distribution, and the utilisation until its recycling or its disposal after use”. Product quality and product use are equally important. The Ecolabel is reserved for products that are “kindest to the envi- ronment”. Its criteria guarantee the suitability of the products and a reduction of their environmental impacts throughout their life cycle. The Ecolabel takes both the product and its packaging into consideration.

At Elite, we carefully select our partner suppliers to ensure that they are also committed to Ecolabel’s principles. Each supplier follows its particular sector’s recommendations and guarantees through the different industry certifications and the quality and environmental impact of its raw materials supplied to Elite.

Under Ecolabel, our entire supply and production chain is under strict control.

When you choose Elite, you are purchasing responsibly and selecting a superior quality product.

24 Elite Collection

QUALITY AND RESISTANCE TESTS OTHER CERTIFICATIONS

With the EU Ecolabel, all of Elite’s mattresses are recognised and certified by the specialised TÜV LGA Institute in Germany. These tests showed exceptional results after 30,000 cycles (about 8 to 10 years of use), indicating Elite’s superior quality. The average loss of firmness on the soft to medium-firm comfort mattress was between 0 and 6% of maximum firmness, depend- ing on the model.

The EU Ecolabel certification has made it possible to certify and validate all the components used in our production process. These elements meet the European standards and are guarantees of high quality and environmental and health safety.

Our partners and suppliers have also received the following certifications for their products or their companies:

The graphic below clearly shows these results and highlights the distinct difference in the quality of Elite’s products.

FINE MATERIALS TO SLEEP LIKE A KING… materials

In stark contrast to other major manufacturers, whose choices are limited by economic factors, our handcrafted quality gives us total freedom to choose the best, natural and healthiest raw materials to improve your well-being. Since the time of our founder, Jules-Henri Caillet, the freedom to choose the best product after a rigorous selection process has been one of the principles that distinguish us as sleep crafters. We know the secrets of assembling the finest natural materials to manufacture the highest quality mattresses and beds.

ALPACA WOOL

SWISS WOOL

A truly outstanding material, the virgin wool selected by Elite comes from sheep raised in Switzerland. Over the years, experi- ence has taught us that this natural fiber with a keratin base is an indispensable part of a good mattress, because it incorporates numerous important properties. First, due to its structure, the wool has excellent twist-and-stretch resistance while remaining highly elastic. Furthermore, its curly texture traps large amounts of air. This increases its thermal pro- tection factor, meaning that it protects against both heat and cold. Another important property of our virgin wool is its hygroscopic capacity. This means that it can absorb up to 100% of its own weight in water without any external sensation of moisture. This is particularly important in light of the fact that we lose about 0.5 liters of water every night.

The alpaca is an animal native to the Andes that is a member of the camelid family. Raised by mankind for thousands of years, it comes from Peru, Chili and Bolivia, but we now find it all over the world, including Switzerland. Alpaca wool is softer, lighter and warmer than sheep’s wool. Its structure contains microscopic air pockets that give it unrivalled thermal and insulating properties.

A noble fiber, it is also found in the world of high fashion; it is renowned for its softness and exceptional quality.

It is therefore only natural that it is included in the top-of-the-line Elite mattress stuffing materials.

It is also credited with preventing the problems resulting from sleep disturbances and rheumatism.

28 Elite Collection

CASHMERE

TUSSAH SILK

On the high plateaus of the Himalayas at an average altitude of 4,000 meters lives the Pashmina goat. Its precious wool is known world-wide as “cashmere”. This long, silky wool together with a downy undercoat protects the goats from glacial wind and cold (between -30°C and -40°C) and is used primarily for the padding on the winter side of Elite mattresses.

Silk is certainly the most precious of the raw materials used in making a mattress. The sum of its “natural” qualities speaks for itself. The Tussah silk that we use comes from the thread of the cocoons produced by different species of wild caterpillars in India, China, and Japan. The woven thread offers this famous silkiness, luxuriousness, and sensuousness. Among other qualities, the silk has hygroscopic and thermoregu- latory properties, which allow it to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp. It also disperses heat, which creates a feeling of refreshment.

During sleep, the cashmere provides a cozy comfort associated with a sensation of softness and warmth.

CAMEL WOOL

PURE HORSEHAIR

After being vigorously washed and carefully disinfected, the horsehair we use is heated with steam and then dried. This treat- ment gives it its permanent spiral shape. Thanks to this structure, horsehair padding gives your mattress an additional softness and elasticity. For people who sleep mainly on their sides, these properties are important because they reduce the high degree of pressure exerted on the shoulders and the hips and thus promote improved circulation. Horsehair also ensures excellent ventilation and guarantees a pleasant feel. Its hygro- scopic characteristic allows it to absorb and neutralize perspiration. This specific quality is important for people who often feel over- heated, because it allows them to sleep soundly. At Elite, we select only the highest quality horsehair.

Camel wool has long been described as having miraculous prop- erties. It has been a precious material in Europe since ancient times. When applied to painful parts of the body, it can be used to soothe various diseases such as arthritis, neuralgia and rheuma- tism. It was prescribed by doctors in the past. The thermal qualities are close to those of sheep wool, likewise appreciated for elasticity and high capacity to absorb moisture and sweat. Light and soft like alpaca wool, camel wool provides superior comfort and helps maintain constant body temperature. It prevents the body from overheating and is hypoallergenic. As a natural fiber par excellence, it is often compared to the noblest natural wools, especially in the textile industry, where it is considered to be a luxury material.

We purchase our horsehair exclusively from a Swiss spinning mill that has dedicated itself to quality for six generations.

Experience has led Elite to choose horsehair for many of its prod- ucts because it is very long-lasting, and is a mark of excellence of an Elite mattress.

30 Elite Collection

SISAL

100% NATURAL LATEX

100% natural latex is a plant-derived raw material gathered in Asia from the rubber tree. Rubber tree forests prevent soil erosion, provide timber and firewood, and create jobs. From its faraway source in Asia, the natural latex milk sap is transported to Europe in the ballast tanks of large cargo ships. Because these ships require liquid ballast, our latex is transported with no additional energy impact.

Sisal (agave) is a plant originating in the eastern part of Mexico. The sisal fiber is extracted from its leaves. Sisal fiber is used as a primary layer of the padding in our mattresses. Surrounding the core of the mattress, sisal has proven to be very durable, ensuring great stability and excellent support for the lay- ers of filling and stuffing. Compact and homogeneous, the sisal fiber layer guarantees air permeability and excellent elasticity. In addition, sisal fiber is a 100% natural and renewable organic material.

At ELITE, our mattresses are made of natural latex, a true gift from nature, and they are guaranteed to be free of synthetic rubber.

Currently there is no standard definition of "natural latex".

Many mattresses are sold with the description “natural latex” while failing to say that most of these “natural latex cores” contain between 15 and 30% synthetic latex milk. At ELITE, we use absolutely no synthetic rubber from petroleum derivatives (SBR). All the qualities discussed in our literature have been certified according to the Eurolatex standards as well as the Öko-Tex 100 standard !

SEACELL ® FIBER

ORGANIC COTTON

Cotton is a plant fiber that surrounds the seeds of the cotton plant. It is the most important natural fiber produced in the world and certainly the one best tolerated by our skin.

The SeaCell ® fiber has several properties associated with the cellulose of algae. It promotes healthy skin through a release of vitamin E and calcium and magnesium mineral salts. It is non- irritating and prevents scarring after skin irritation. All of these qualities are associated with the proven benefits of Lyocell, spe- cifically softness to touch and “breathability”. SeaCell ® Active is a Lyocell fiber associated with algae fibers and silver. The amino acids and minerals contained in the algae are released by the slight moisture of the body, which has a balancing effect on living tissue. The mineral salts contained in the algae of SeaCell ® imbue the skin with minerals once again. Thanks to its silver content, the fiber also has an antibacterial effect. Perma- nently bacteriostatic, the SeaCell ® fiber preserves the freshness of your sleep.

Therefore, you won’t be surprised to learn that this fiber is used in the production of Elite mattresses.

The cotton that we use is produced on organic farms and has a capacity for aeration, among other excellent properties. It feels fresh and allows your mattress to breathe. Moreover, its hygro- scopic material quality allows it to absorb perspiration easily, a car- dinal virtue for padding. Through experience we have also learned that, when arranged in thick layers, organic cotton offers a feeling of sumptuousness and softness due to its elasticity. A mattress constructed this way is more than just a bed, it is a cozy nest. Our cotton is cultivated organically by small producers without GMOs. They use natural pesticides such as pheromone traps or decoctions of Neem leaves and manure for fertilizer. The absence of chemical products makes this cotton better for the skin. It is naturally hypo-allergenic and, equally importantly, it allows farmers to avoid repeated exposure to dangerous chemical substances.

32 Elite Collection

LYOCELL: THE ADVANCED FIBER

INGEO ® FIBER

As a 100% cellulose fiber, manufactured with respect for the environment since it comes from a wood pulp mixture, Lyocell perfectly satisfies the Elite requirements. This biodegradable fiber has excellent properties: excellent resistance, good mois- ture absorption, and flexibility. For the user, it is characterized by a soft, silky touch.

Ingeo ® is a 100% natural material made from processed corn ker- nels. This environmentally friendly fiber creates fewer CO 2 emis- sions, is eco-compostable, and comes from renewable compo- nents. Ingeo ® combines the qualities of a natural material with the advantages of a synthetic material. Ingeo is hypo-allergenic and offers excellent shock-resistance and stability. It also absorbs moisture and regulates body temperature.

Ingeo ® is naturally resistant to dust mites.

SOY FIBER

Soy fiber is produced from proteins extracted from soy beans. It dries rapidly due to its ability to transmit moisture and offer good thermal insulation while naturally retaining heat. This natural fiber comes from a renewable material that has excellent stretch- resistance and feels soft to the touch.

pocket spring mattresses

This technology can improve your comfort, well-being, and back health. We developed a mattress for every need, every body type, every sleep position, and every personal comfort preference. Elite’s exclusive state-of-the-art pocket spring mattresses redefine the industry standard of excellence and raise the bar for quality. The combination of these springs and our intermediate layers of padding offer a dynamic sense of comfort, a cocoon-like environment, and individualised sup- port of your body, point by point, in all positions and throughout the entire night. When you get out of bed, the mattresses reinforced sides maintain stability to help you get up more easily. This type of mattress allows a high degree of “sleep independence”, meaning that a person sleeping on one side of the bed will not be disturbed when the person on the other side of the bed moves or rolls over. For people who get hot during the night, a spring mattress offers the best ther- mal regulation due to cross-ventilation.

Use : Daily use, for people with sensitive backs.

FLAMENCO

Thickness : 28 cm

Summer side

This state-of-the-art mattress offers an incomparable level of comfort. Its unique “Duoflex” suspension ensures exceptional comfort and softness. The pocket springs progressively compress for dynamic, localized support for the spinal column and the lumbar area. The 7 comfort zones allow relief of exces- sive pressure on the sensitive zones of the body such as the nape of the neck, the cervical vertebrae, the shoulders, and, of course, the hips. The rich, 100% natural padding in this magnificent mattress is composed of refreshing layers on its summer side, and padding with high thermal properties plus a memory foam layer on its winter side, for a truly cocoon-like feeling. The layers shown on the right ensure perfect thermal regulation while absorbing moisture and odors and offering incomparable coziness. Our craftsmen tuft the interior entirely by hand in order to maintain the stability of all of the layers of padding between the tufts. This also gives the octagonal stitching a unique and luxurious finish.

SOPRANO

Thickness : 26 cm

Summer side

The core of this model is composed of 1,350 micro-springs per m 2 . The large number of micro-springs guarantees high flexibility and the ability to adapt to any shape, even the most demanding body types. This top-quality technical construction offers both contact softness and good back support in all sleep positions. Here, the seven comfort zones are managed with appropriate pressure on the sensitive zones such as the nape of the neck, the pelvis and the legs, promoting good blood circulation and the cellular regeneration that accompanies it. The shoulder zone benefits from the joined action of three different types of springs producing a significant pressure relief. A product of this quality offers excellent sleeping comfort. A thick layer of pure blond tail horsehair specially selected and woven, forms the base of this high-end mattress’ rich 100% natural uphol- stery. This is then completed with the subtle use of Tussah silk, organic cotton and active SeaCell ® fiber for the summer side. Cashmere, organic cotton, and Swiss wool are used for the winter side. The com- pletely hand-crafted interior tufting ensures the integrity of the thick layers in the SOPRANO mattress, and also provides it with excellent thermal regulation.

CONCERTO

Thickness : 25 cm

The Concerto’s avant-garde “combi-spring” technology is an ingenious combi- nation of many different micro-springs that control the core of this outstanding mattress. The Concerto is specially designed for people with a larger build. The high density of springs in the Concerto guarantees optimal back support and unequaled comfort. The 7 dual-purpose comfort zones guarantee dynamic sup- port in the “heavy” zones without forming pressure points, and soft comfort in the ”light” and sensitive zones. Because of this ingenious and innovative design, customers who select the Concerto can be ensured of a properly aligned spine while sleeping on their sides, and firm lumbar support while on their backs. The technical complexity developed for this mattress relieves pressures on the zones of the shoulders, the nape of the neck, the cervical vertebrae, the pelvis, the knees, and the ankles, thus promoting proper circulation. Another quality to be highlighted : excellent sleep independence for couples, meaning that one person is not disturbed if the other moves or rolls over. This quality of mattress includes 100% natural padding made of pure woven tail horsehair, lamb’s wool, Tussah silk, and active SeaCell ® fibers. All these elements combine to provide excellent thermal regulation, a guarantee of a good night’s sleep for even the most demanding customer.
