WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- A bed that comes with a roller-based bed cover may be the answer to duvet-related problems among couples.
- Designed by sleep technology company Simba, the revolving duvet moves simultaneously with users as they toss and turn in bed.
- The company said they came up with the design after a survey showed that blanket stealing is among the things that cause conflicts between couples in Britain.
The age-old battle of duvet hugging can cause the downfall of even the strongest of couples. It can really be frustrating to wake up ice-cold and find your partner toasty warm because he has stolen the covers.
But now, your duvet-related problems may be solved with a “rolling” bed cover that is designed in such a way that it cannot be pulled off by either partner.
Sleep tech company Simba features an “infinite duvet” that comes with a roller-based system in the frame to make certain that the cover is completely distributed. So, while the users toss and turn in their sleep, the revolving duvet moves with them by passing through a series of rollers and tensioning systems in the base before feeding out the other side.
The idea of the design came up after Simba’s survey of 2,000 couples revealed that duvet-stealing, an unmade bed and snoring are the top things that had caused bedtime conflict between British couples.
According to the research, one-third of participants are annoyed by ‘blanket-bandits’ while three in ten feel tempers rising when they come home to a messy bedroom. While four in five adults said sleeping on fresh beddings is one of life’s best pleasures, one in five admitted to have never cleaned their duvet. Lastly, 75% of the participants feel happier and more peaceful with a tidy and sophisticated bedroom environment than a gaudy, chaotic décor.
“Duvet stealing is a sore subject among British couples—a bedroom habit that’s the catalyst for hundreds of arguments,” according to Simba CEO Steve Reid. “When you sleep better, you are more likely to make better decisions, take less risks and start the day in a more positive and peaceful frame of mind.”
Based on computer-generated images of the bed, the design can also attract interior and cleaning enthusiasts due to the remote-controlled “self-making” function which automatically revolve the blanket while being pressed and steam-washed. The product is presently in the design stage to test consumer’s reviews.
