“We’re al­ways look­ing for new ways to cre­ate the per­fect bed,” says Sleepy­head’s mar­ket­ing man­ager War­ren Roach. “We’ve been pro­vid­ing Ki­wis with beds for more than 80 years and in that time, life has changed – and so has the way we use our beds.”

En­ter the ‘Mezzo’ bed, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Sleepy­head and New Zealand prod­uct de­signer Jamie McLel­lan, fea­tur­ing clean, min­i­mal­ist lines and a clever ap­proach to com­fort.

Every­thing about the ‘Mezzo’ is care­fully con­sid­ered: it can be put to­gether in only 10 min­utes; fea­tures an ash-and-ply head­board and ad­justable head­rest; op­tional built-in bed­side cab­i­nets; and a laser­cut base for ven­ti­la­tion. McClel­lan’s ap­proach to the mat­tress is smart in its sim­plic­ity – there’s a ‘win­ter’ side and a ‘sum­mer’ side. Win­ter fea­tures wave quilted Ten­cel fab­ric, wool for warmth and latex for com­fort; the ‘sum­mer’ side has straight-quilted firm-feel air-flow fab­ric and ‘Fu­sion Gel’ for cool­ing.

Sleepy­head found McLel­lan through his work with All­birds, the in­no­va­tive, award­win­ning run­ners made with New Zealand wool. The par­al­lels are ob­vi­ous. “We run busy lives, but still value our down-time,” says Roach. “Every­thing about our Mezzo bed is care­fully con­sid­ered and de­signed for the kind of lives we are liv­ing now.”

‘Mezzo’ by Sleepy­head is priced from $3799 and is ex­clu­sively avail­able from Smiths City.
