PONS, Coming the End of February, is the Bed of the Future
One of the remaining areas of the home that tech hasn’t been able to crack quite yet is the bed. Sure, there are apps and other products designed to help consumers track how they sleep and collect all kinds of nighttime data. But the bed frame and mattress themselves have yet to really be innovated—short of being able to pick a “sleep number” or adjust along an incline.
The smart bed manufacturer gets its name from the Latin word for bridge, and it also refers to the part of the brain that puts you into REM sleep and helps to generate dreams. Given that, PONS set out to design a set of products that combined “technology, craftsmanship, and value.”
In an email to Dealerscope, PONS explained that they also set out to solve a number of problems that they note with regard to the present state of the sleeping situation. They included:
- Simple assembly and tear down. PONS pointed to a Nest Home Index that found 25-34 year olds are moving more often than ever, which means having to build and un-build. With that in mind, they developed a bed frame that requires no tools and is quick and easy to build and break down.
- Sleeping near our phones. Be honest, how many extension cords and power strips do you have next to your bed? Or, were you smart enough to lay out your bedroom with the outlet locations in mind so you could plug in at night and have your phone near you? PONS solved those issues by building USB ports directly into the bed frame.
- The need to sleep cool. No one likes to sleep hot. PONS noted that a drop in temperature can assist in falling asleep “due to the fact that your body naturally drops its body temperature when dozing off.” Their answer is a mattress that has a proprietary top layer of foam that is designed to be “the coolest on the market.,” sheets infused with “nanotechnology cooling,” and a bed frame that sits low to the ground (cooler air sinks).
“Through the impactful use of technology and premium materials, a keen understanding of sleep pain points, and meticulous craftsmanship, PONS has developed one of the most sophisticated pieces of sleep technology,” the company said in its email to Dealerscope. “It eradicates hot sleep, transforms to the mold of your body, and rocks you to sleep.”
Bed frame pricing starts at $1,199 and the memory foam mattresses start at $599. All PONS products, which also include pillows, bed sheets, comforters, and a larger bed frame, will be available by the end of February.
