Inventor of the pocket spring in 1901, Vispring has been handcrafting luxurious mattresses ever since—combining skilled craftsmanship and natural materials to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. As part of Harrods’ Art Partners initiative, a series of collaborations between home brands and designers, Vispring has partnered with Missoni Home to create three limited-edition beds.
The collaboration merges Vispring’s bespoke elegance with Missoni’s unmistakable zig-zag prints, resulting in a striking focal point to any bedroom. Magali Castillo, global marketing director at Vispring says, “Missoni Home’s style is characterized by a distinct use of colors and original patterns that celebrate vitality, positive energy and the beauty of life. As such, it felt very intuitive to associate our brand’s ethos, ‘sleep well, live better’ with Missoni’s wittiness.” The collection includes the classic monochromatic Tobago, the rainbow-colored Siena and Missoni’s key Greek motif-inspired Santafe.
The beds will be displayed and showcased as part of an art installation in Harrods’ Brompton Road windows in Knightsbridge, London before being offered for sale.
