Intercoil’s Vispring Beds
British brand Vispring is the go-to bed manufacturer for royalty, celebrities, politicians, business leaders and top sports personalities.
Intercoil International, the manufacturer, retailer and distributor of premium beds, bedding and bedroom furniture in the Middle East, is launching British brand Vispring at The Hotel Show.
Renowned for handcrafting bespoke beds since it pioneered the world’s first pocket sprung mattress in 1901, Vispring combines the natural materials with the skilled craft of master artisans passed down from generation to generation.
Intercoil has already launched the largest Vispring retail showroom outside the UK on Jumeirah Beach Road in Dubai earlier this year with 10 of the 14 models available in Vispring’s global catalogue.
Each bespoke bed is notably handmade in Vispring’s factory in Devon, before being shipped to the UAE. Offering the ultimate support and comfort for a peaceful night’s sleep, individually pocketed springs are layered in a honeycomb shaped nesting unit that delivers the optimum level of support and cradles the body throughout the night. Pocket springs are covered with formulated blends of natural fibres such as silk, mohair, cashmere, bamboo, pure British fleece wool and real Shetland wool, guaranteeing that every Vispring bed is naturally hypoallergenic. Each Vispring mattress is then side-stitched by hand to give it strength and comfort.
Hypnos Kingston Pillow Top Mattress
Designed with the housekeeper in mind, Royal Warrant holder Hypnos’ Kingston pillow top mattress offers a practical, time saving solution without compromising on guest comfort.
Featuring a sewn-in topper, to provide an in-built level of extra luxury for guests, the Kingston requires no turning and only seasonal rotation, minimising housekeeping and maintenance to one side of the mattress. Being 20% lighter than Hypnos’ other turnable hotel mattresses, it can be easily rotated by one person without any need for help. The mattress’ safety levels are boosted by compliance with BS 7177 (Crib 5) Fire Retardancy regulations and also comes with a five-year guarantee durability assurance. Each mattress can be matched with a range of divan styles, with the option of hidden pull-out extra beds, and finished with a beautiful headboard to ensure the bed not only feels good, but looks good too.

YouBed technology makes it possible for hotels and brands to reach their full potential as sleep providers.
Claiming to be “the world’s most comfortable hotel bed”, YouBed is a Swedish innovation and is the world’s first hotel bed that provides adjustable firmness without interfering with comfort.
According to YouBed, all guests have different comfort preferences and it is simply not possible for a normal “static” bed to satisfy all guests at the same time.
By using a handcontrol, the guest can easily adjust the firmness of the bed. With YouBed technology, the mattress consists of pocket springs that can be individually adjusted with the handcontrol. The adjustable parts consists of two so-called adaptable cassettes developed by the company which can be individually adjusted for the guest’s shoulders and hips.
