The fabric that purifies air and improves sleep

Do you want to sleep in a healthier and cleaner environment? Now you can, thanks to this technological fabric integrated in the headboard

A new partnership between theBREATH® and Cassina makes it possible to purify the sleeping environment by means of a fabric. Integrated into the headboard, theBreath® fabric makes the air in the bedroom healthier and cleaner. Moreover, theBreath® is produced with zero emissions and purifies the air with a passive process, without using energy.

The weave of theBreath® is formed by three thin layers that work in synergy in a virtuous circle. Breathable and printable, the two outer layers are made of water-repellent material with bacteriostatic, antiviral and fungicidal properties. On the other hand, the middle layer contains an absorbent carbon fiber cartridge that attracts, retains and breaks down pollutant molecules and odors in the air.

The Bio-mbo bed, designed by Patricia Urquiola, has an upholstered headboard with side wings surrounding the pillow area to give a feeling of additional protection around the head. The padded headboard is covered with theBreath® fabric to improve air and sleep quality.
