TEMPUR believe that whatever your shape, size or age, your mattress should contour to the exact shape of your body, not the other way round. The brand actually started its journey working with NASA in the early 1970s. NASA developed a pressure-absorbing material to help cushion astronauts during lift-off by evenly distributing weight which, a decade later, was perfected into TEMPUR mattress material. This unique material still lies at the core of every mattress, pillow and accessory from the brand’s range.
