Dorsal Mattresses

The most gentle contouring mattresses.

The Sunflower Mattress is available in Soft, Medium or Firm feel.

Each Planet Mattress has four layers, which are easily re-positionable to customise the overall feel.

Dorsal are a Italian bed design company, established in 1932. They specialise in natural and innovative sleep systems.

Dorsal foam mattresses have a different consistency of support compared to the stability of padded cotton futons or the springy elasticity of latex mattresses.

The Dorsal foam has a gentle compression type. It contours under body shape, but does not have the 'push back' or elasticity of latex mattresses. Dorsal foam compresses from the top down, adjusting to weight until an equilibrium between foam density and body posture is reached.

Some people compare the feel of dorsal foam to memory foam but there is an important difference. Memory foam retains body shape impression and slowly adjusts back. The memory foam 'sets' a posture impression like a mould, which fits body shape snugly, but makes turning over more difficult. Dorsal foam does not retain body impression, it returns to shape immediately.

There is really nothing quite like it. We invite you to try it in our Auckland showroom. If this is too far, we have a 7 day trial. We offer a full refund minus the cost price of delivery to you (return freight is at our cost) so you are welcome to try a Dorsal mattress in your home.
