Eclipse International Expands Van Vorst Line With Mattresses Using Activcor

Eclipse International is expanding its luxury Van Vorst mattress collection with two new mattress models that use Activcor Advanced Comfort System and latex or memory foam. The shock-absorbing technology was first used in athletic shoes and German luxury automobiles. Activcor Advanced Comfort System features patented technology and uses a molded MDI foam core (as opposed to traditional TDI foam) that incorporates barrel-shaped modules.

An effective cushioning material for high-end athletic shoes, Activcor is strong enough to support strenuous exercise. Featuring foam columns, similar to pocket coils, the solid, molded foam is engineered to absorb motion and provide defined body support. These features make it an ideal material for supporting sleep.

Activcor is the perfect addition to our growing Van Vorst collection of mattresses,” said Stuart Carlitz, chief executive officer of Eclipse International. “The enhanced cushioning system provides a level of support that helps eliminate tossing and turning, a key disruptor of sleep. Combined with the latex or the memory foam, the new Van Vorst mattresses cradle sleepers in comfort for a more restful night’s sleep.”

The two new additions to the Van Vorst collection use Activcor to enhance body support. With a soothing mix of Activcor and memory foam, the Del Mar is priced to retail at $2,499 in queen while the Oceania, priced at $2,899, features Activcor and latex for a more buoyant feel. Each of the new mattresses are dressed in a crisp white knit fabric and charcoal gray borders.

The Van Vorst line has a rich history dating back to its 1888 founding in Los Angeles. The company grew into a reliable source of private-label mattresses for well-known retailers including Bloomingdale’s, The Bon Marche, Meier & Frank and more. Marketed as a luxury brand, the five-model Van Vorst line is priced to retail from $1,499 to $4,999 in queen.
