Sleeping Tomorrow is a revolutionary sleeping concept designed by renown designer Axel Enthoven and developed by mattress ticking manufacturer DesleeClama. It was presented as “the bed of the future” at Interzum 2013 in Cologne, Germany.
The designation was given to the Sleeping Tomorrow bed for its organic design as well as its state-of-the-art technical features that are creatively integrated into the patented knitted fabric that was strategically designed with the central theme of optimal sleep in mind.
Cutting-edge optical fibers and copper yarns are actually knitted into the fabric of the mattress to “sense” when the sleeper is a bit too hot or too cold.
“This bed shows which applications are possible with the innovative fabrics of DesleeClama” says Enthoven. “The true advantage of a knitted fabric is in the open structure which allows designers like me to apply additional functionalities such as lighting, sound absorption, sensors, control panels and invisible speakers which truly enhance the sleep experience.”

For years immemorial, concrete has been a most invaluable building material. Concrete has literally held cities, towns, villages, and indeed nations together and kept their people safe and secure. Homes, apartment buildings, offices, bridges, viaducts, roads and sidewalks have been set in concrete for ages, and urbanisation in general owes a lot to this universal grey material. However, the downside to it, as scientists have discovered, is that the commercial production of concrete releases an alarming amount of greenhouse gas, precisely carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere annually, thus contributing to the greenhouse effect and climate change.
