Vivo mattress again the best in November 2013 and January 2015

The mattress is suitable for people who sleep on their backs or sides. The rest results can be reviewed on the website of the Consumer Society (Consumentenbond) and in the January issue of the Consumer guide (Consumentengids).  

Good Industrial design 2014​
The Original bed by Royal Auping B.V. received in 2014 a Good Industrial Design (GID) recognition. To qualify for this quality mark, a product has to be more than just beautiful. Functionality, originality, respect for humans and the environment, value of use and innovation matter just as much. The GID recognition is the quality label for Good Industrial Design in The Netherlands.  Products that show the commercial power of design are eligible for the quality label. The submissions are assessed by an independent expert jury under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Eng. Wim Poelman e.a. The jury was of the opinion that Auping's Original met all assessment criteria and may therefore use the Good Industrial Design mark from now on.

More than two thousand Dutch consumers participated in the survey. More than one out of three (39%) of Dutch consumers names Auping as most reliable. In the assessment the quality, price/ quality ration and degree in which the brand knows the needs of the consumer were taken into account. Auping scored best in these 'trust factors' of all the bed brands.
