Knowing that most mattresses end up in landfill and incineration, Auping and Niaga® joined forces back in 2017 to take on the challenge of developing the world’s first circular mattress. We were successful. Niaga® brought in its material science and design expertise to complement Auping’s promise of the highest sleep quality and comfort. The circular mattress that ensued consisted of just two materials, polyester and steel.
Due to Niaga® technology, the steel and polyester can be decoupled and reused at the end of a mattress’s use cycle. As such, it enables mattress refurbishment to extend life and eventually high-quality mattress-to-mattress recycling. This is a true revolution in the industry as it keeps valuable materials around for future generations. We have been using Niaga® technology in all of our circular mattresses since.
Each of our circular mattresses carries a Niaga® tag. This is your proof that it was designed to use again. By scanning the tag, you will see what materials are inside and how you can return it. All you have to do is make sure to return it when you’re done using it. This allows us to reuse the valuable materials again and again so together we can help eliminate waste. Contributing to a waste-free world was never this easy.
At Niaga®, we are future-proofing everyday products by making sure materials don't have to end up as waste. Ever. Together with our partners, we design out waste, completely. We design to use again. So far, we have developed mattresses, carpet, and furniture panels. They are healthier and fully recyclable, without compromising on performance. By scanning the Niaga® tag on our partners’ products, you’ll see exactly what they are made of and how they can be returned. More product redesigns are underway.
Auping Evolve is the first completely circular mattress ever. It is a mattress made without foam or glue, and made with materials which can be reused continuously to make new, fresh mattresses. This mattress is not only good for the environment, it’s also excellent for a good night’s sleep.
Auping Elysium is a 100% circular mattress made to sink into blissfully. The absence of foam and latex gives Elysium exceptional ventilating properties. We also consciously opted to use polyester. Not only because it’s the most suitable material for making a circular mattress, but also because it doesn’t absorb moisture, unlike cotton. It ensures that your mattress ventilates excellently and you don’t get hot quickly at night.
