WHY & HOW

“EIGHT STARTED WITH A SIMPLE IDEA: MAKE GREAT SLEEP EASIER TO GET.”

Sleep should never feel like a waste of time. It’s when we recharge our bodies to take on the next day, and refuel our brains on ideas to make it better.

Yesterday’s work harder is today’s work smarter. To keep up with the innovators, you have to have energy. Yet in this era of health-conscious mindfulness, sleep takes a back seat. Until now.

Like millions of other modern men and women, Matteo Franceschetti was restless.

That tossing and turning meant less energy to pursue things he loved. But when he researched remedies, none helped hit that perfect REM.

And shopping for solutions—from pillows to beds—was a mess. Outdated, confusing, stagnant. Why were beds so behind, when everything else in our world was modernized?

So, he called on tech-savvy friend Massimo Bassi, and together they came up with their own solution.

A smart mattress cover that tracks sleep patterns, regulates temperature, and records disturbances to help you listen to your body better, and cut out things that make you wake. Designed, tested, and made real by the best in Silicon Valley.

Everyone’s sleep cycle is different. Which means you might not need the recommended eight hours a night—maybe more, maybe less. We’re here to help you find your best rest—your version of eight hours. And make the most of them.

It’s data used for better dreams—and making them a reality.

For sleep that counts.
