Nestr Sustainable Modular Bedding System

Nestr is a healthy lifestyle and behavior changer: It is a modular bedding system that facilitates customers’ making sustainable choices and minimizing environmental impact without compromising comfort, hygiene, or size. Molded bamboo spring structures replace the bed furniture, box springs, and metal springs of the regular mattress. A five inch natural latex foam pad sits on top of the bamboo structure to give comfort.

The modular system allows the changing of the bed size by adding an extra Nestr rather than disposing of the whole bed and purchasing a new one. When the modular units are not needed any longer, they can be used as outdoor furniture. A 3D spacer polyester fabric cover allows easy ventilation, and can be washed for a healthy sleeping environment. Since there is no commingled material, Nestr can be easily recycled after its life cycle.
