While researching for this blog, I usually end up stumbling across some pretty insane articles regarding either mattresses, sleep or some other related topic. Today, I came across a particularly interesting article about an actual mattress sculpture. This sculpture was featured in the Llove Exhibition, a hotel exhibition located in Tokyo, alongside a number of other very creative and inspired hotel rooms and beds.
According to MattressZine, the show spanned fourteen rooms and drew a number of interested crowds and guests to the quirky hotel. After further investigation, I learned that this show was inspired by “400 years of trade and cultural relations between Japan and the Netherlands” (Dezeen).
The rooms ranged from a room with a layered bed, to a room containing a mattress that sat in rocks. One clean and simple room had furniture that appeared to be stuck inside of the wall.
Although each of these rooms were beautiful and strange, they functioned as sleeping and living quarters as well. Guests were allowed to stay in literal pieces of artwork until the exhibit closed in November of 2010. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
Although at Sleep City, we do not carry any mattress sculptures, we do offer great customer service and a wide selection of Simmons mattresses, that probably offer slightly more pressure relief than the Llayers Llove Hotel mattress. So don’t get too discouraged when you can’t find any mattresses that rotate or undulate. We can most likely help you find something even better.

Cheers and sleep well.
