Slumberland the First in Asia to Offer Kikoo SleepTech from Germany in Mattress
For the first time in Asia, the advanced German technology of Kikoo SleepTech will be available here to help set the temperature right for a comfortable sleep every night. Understanding how fluctuations in temperature can adversely affect one’s sleep quality, Slumberland has incorporated the innovative Kikoo technology that uses heat-releasing graphite strips into its newest range of mattress, the TempSmartª 5.0. This German sleep technology works harmoniously with the TempSmartª technology to enhance the temperature-regulating feature of the mattress. TempSmartª mattresses are fitted with microcapsules, which are incorporated as finishing on fabrics or infused into fibres during the manufacturing process. The millions of microcapsules will intelligently absorb the excess body heat, store it and release the heat back when needed and are a great enabler to reach optimal comfort in sleep. In addition to Kikoo and TempSmartª, the latest range of mattress incorporates seven other key features i.e. Spring on Spring, Tencel, HyCare, lambswool, horse hair, natural latex and ventilation case, to provide the cool sleep and keep mattress looking and smelling fresh after years of use.
“Scenografie”, a New Collection of Architecturally-Inspired Cache-pots for Succulent Plants
LATOxLATO presents its new “Scenografie” collection. Innovative, architectural cache-pots offer a spectacular display of greenery. These pieces offer an original way to showcase succulent plants: placing their fascinating sculptural forms, no two alike, on these foundations. Transcending the simple flowerpot, the design studio founded by Virginia Valentini and Francesco Breganze de Capnist has created a series of original and theatrical pieces of architecture for plants: stage-settings that combine the cache pot and its stand in a single object. These “Scenografie” are as mysterious and metaphysical as a De Chirico painting, structured to show off the botanical geometries of succulents at their very best.
