Auping Evolve
Het eerste circulaire matras ter wereld
This project is part of Dutch Design Awards 2020

Auping Evolve is the first fully circular mattress in the world. And this mattress is not only good for the environment, it is also really comfortable for a great night's sleep. The use of innovative materials makes this mattress nicely soft and extra ventilating.

About 1.5 million mattresses are discarded in The Netherlands alone every year. This number even jumps up to 35 million in Europe and 20 million in the United States. Many mattresses are incinerated or end up as landfill. This causes enormous environmental problems. Due to the complex composition of glued materials, these mattresses are one of the largest contributors to household landfill waste worldwide.

At Auping, we want to do things differently. Better. We don’t want any more waste or incineration of used mattresses. We want to close the loop. That is why we developed Auping Evolve, the world’s first circular mattress in collaboration with DSM-Niaga. The mattress is made of only steel and polyester. All materials can be used again and again into a new mattress. This is how we close the loop and contribute to a world in which nothing is wasted, but where everything is reused for the next generation. That is circular.
