The TEMPUR story
Our dream was to create a mattress like no other
It all started at NASA in the 1970s when scientists developed temperature sensitive material to absorb the pressure experienced by astronauts during lift-off. Inspired by this technology, we’ve spent decades perfecting TEMPUR Material, so it actively adapts to the
weight, warmth and movement of every individual. We’re proud TEMPUR Material stands alone as the only material certified by NASA and the Space Foundation. Like all good scientists, our journey of discovery is never complete. We’re always innovating and developing new technologies in search of a better night’s sleep.
