GhostBed, an online mattress retailer and manufacturer of boxed beds, said retailer interest in its six-model Venus Williams mattress collection has been “outstanding” due to its exclusive Venus FIT (far infrared technology) layer, a heat-activated element that absorbs body temperature, resulting in a better night’s sleep.
Designed to promote recovery, performance and health through its proprietary FIT layer, the one-of-a-kind collection was recently introduced in January. In addition to the Venus FIT layer, the mattresses also feature an eco-friendly cover made from recycled plastic bottles and GhostBed’s proprietary bio-foam layer – combining the comfort and cooling associated with GhostBed with the advanced sleep technology of far infrared.
“Retailer interest to our product has been outstanding,” said Marc Werner, CEO of GhostBed.
“A medical team was commissioned to conduct testing and analysis of the Far Infrared Technology Gel Additive application with a specified viscoelastic polyurethane foam component to analyze the human health and wellness benefits associated with this technology. The first part of the analysis was conducted in a clinically-controlled environment by a certified licensed thermographer, where thermal images were taken of a test subject prior to and after exposure to the technology; while the second part of the analysis, conducted by a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, evaluated the associated health and wellness benefits of exposure,” he added. “After 30 minutes of use with the technology, a net average body temperature increased by 1.26 degrees Fahrenheit. Medical research has shown that by regularly increasing the core temperature of the human body by less than 2 degrees Fahrenheit, the human immune system is improved up to 30%.”
Catering To D2C, The Collection Exudes A Sporty, Thoughtful Aesthetic
The collection caters to direct-to-consumer and wholesale audiences. The the 12-inch Legend model, created for the direct-to-consumer marketplace, combines the Venus FIT layer with a soy-based bio foam layer. The model is available as a hybrid design, with individually wrapped springs, or as an all-foam design. The Legend mattresses are available for purchase through GhostBed.com.
The wholesale collection features four models, available in 13-inch and 14-inch profiles, as either hybrid or all-foam designs. The mattresses include the proprietary Venus FIT layer, a Ghost transition layer that provides additional pressure relief and support, and the sustainable ultra-cooling cover.
Aesthetically, GhostBed tapped into William’s fashion and interior design background to produce the mattresses, which stand out on any retailer’s showroom floor. The colors, sustainable fabrics, ticking and internal components were each handpicked by Williams to match her keen sense of style mixing high fashion and performance.
“When we first began designing this collection, I knew I wanted to highlight the importance of rejuvenation through a healthy night’s sleep and how it impacts daily performance,” said Williams. “We knew we had to use only the best, highest-quality materials in order to create a product that would really make a difference in someone’s life. I am so proud of what GhostBed and I have created.”
