Our innovations 2019

Discover NeckProtect – the patented and truly anatomically shaped neck support pillow, our versatile Royal Vario, the lightweight Summer duvet Dynamic ultralight and certainly our Centa-Star limited editions.

NeckProtect is the world’s first neck support pillow that works where the pain is. It takes human anatomy into account, giving every cervical vertebra exactly what it needs. Night after night, the pillow gives support to the neck vertebrae

C5 to C7 and releases C1 and C2, so that the neck can return to its natural ‘C’ shape. Abnormal postures are gently corrected, taking away the cause of many different types of pain while you sleep.

  • Active support of the lower cervical spine and the spinal discs while relieving the upper cervical vertebrae
  • Anatomically shaped neck support pillow in four levels of firmness
  • Supports the natural lordosis of the cervical spine and gently corrects problem posture
  • Perfect for back and side sleepers
  • Height adjustable with an insert

“Curve of life” – how important a healthy cervical spine is

Our cervical spine protects our sensitive spinal cord and carries tremendous responsibility every day: our heads. A healthy ‘C’ curve in the cervical spine, which is also known as the “curve of life” in the philosophy of American chiropractic, is not only the prerequisite for free movement of our heads, but also for our wellbeing. Losing this natural ‘C’ curve, or lordosis, due to overload or a permanent abnormal position (“smartphone neck”) will often cause pain in the form of:

 

  • Backache
  • slipped discs
  • neck pain and tensioned muscles
  • shoulder pain
  • hip and knee pain
  • joint problems
  • headache and migraine

This is how NeckProtect gently supports the natural ‘C’ curve:

  • The highest point of support is on the lower cervical spine (C5 – C6), where most cases of slipped discs occur.
  • It relieves the pressure-sensitive upper cervical vertebrae Atlas and Axis. When you lie on your side, tension is also relieved in your ears and temporomandibular joints.
  • The unique curved shape of the pillow counteracts the number one problem head posture of everyday life, a straightened cervical spine (“smartphone neck”).
  • The integrated support zone ensures a smooth transition to the thoracic spine when lying on your back.
  • The double curved shape of the pillow and the different heights of the ribs allow you to adjust the level of support on the anatomic “hot spots” (C2 – C7).

Boris Biebl: engineer of NeckProtect

The Boris Biebl ChiroCenter in Bottrop is one of the very few practices in Germany for original American chiropractic, neurochiropractic and sacro-occipital techniques. In 2013, Biebl developed the first truly anatomically shaped pillow that supports healthy lordosis and a side pillow to relax the shoulder girdle – a world’s first! He was granted two international patents for this innovation in 2016 and 2017. In its final stages of development, the pillow was honed to perfection for Centa-Star, and NeckProtect was born!

NeckProtect: Four levels of firmness for your comfort

NeckProtect comes in different pillow foams. Starting from the balanced NeckProtect Ultra, you simply choose whether you want more or less support and how quickly – or slowly – you want your NeckProtect pillow to adjust to your posture when you change position.

Four neck support pillows – four high-tech materials: all NeckProtect pillows and the side pillows are encased in premium covers with a wave-like structure. The covers are washable up to 40°C.

NeckProtect accessory: the side pillow for side sleepers

The raised hand supports of the side pillow prevent twisted shoulders and arms to give deep relaxation to the shoulder girdle, where tension is often stored. It doesn’t matter which side you prefer to lie on: the side pillow has one hand support on either side of the Neck- Protect neck support pillow.

It allows you to surf, read and watch films in perfect relaxation – no more numb fingers or arms that go to sleep. It’s really easy to fix the side pillow to the NeckProtect pillow. The side pillow will not slip out of place, even for active sleepers.

Royal Vario

Royal Vario – the duvet that warms exactly where it’s needed

We have been developing breathable summer, all-seasons, winter and four-seasons duvets since 1968. We carry out research into the ideal temperature under the duvet. We keep searching for the best high-tech fibres for even better temperature regulation. And yet, there are still people with cold feet in bed

− a problem that has probably been around ever since mankind first slept in beds. Sometimes, the best ideas are so obvious that they only need a little bit of Swabian inventive genius. This was the case with Royal Vario, our first duvet with a variable button-on layer.

This button-on layer is a quarter of the size of a standard duvet. It features buttonholes so that it can be fixed with double-sided buttons in four different positions, at the very top or bottom or somewhere in between. The button-on layer can be purchased separately or in a set with the Royal all-seasons duvet. Regarding its heat insulation capacity, the button-on layer corresponds to an all-seasons duvet, making it an ideal match for all

Cover fabric:Super fine mako percale (100% cotton)

Royal combi duvets (from 2017), as they all come with the matching buttonholes. Royal Vario allows you to adjust your duvet precisely to where you need extra warmth, be it on your shoulders or at your feet – or anywhere in between. So simple, so brilliant, and so new! Royal Vario is a world’s first with patent pending.

Dynamic ultralight

Dynamic ultralight – a touch of high-tech

A soft wisp of a duvet. Dynamic ultralight is the newcomer in our Ultralight collection. Weighing only 160 grams in the standard size of 135 x 200 cm, the fill weight of the Dynamic ultralight duvet is as light as a bar and a half of chocolate. And yet, this lightweight is an absolute miracle of climate regulation − thanks to Outlast®!

For the best possible breathability and temperature regulation, Outlast® has been incorporated in both the casing and the filling of the Dynamic ultralight duvet, making it the ideal summer duvet.

The temperature-balancing properties of Outlast® are based on innovative phase change materials (PCM), which are encapsulated and applied to the fibre as so-called ThermoculesTM. These ThermoculesTM can absorb and store excess heat. During this process, they change state between solid and liquid, hence the name “phase change”. Originally, Outlast® was developed for space applications and has been used umpteen times in NASA spacesuits. Outlast ® was awarded the Certified Space Technology™ quality seal, making the Dynamic ultralight duvet an absolute state-of-the-art product doubling as a supremely cosy and cuddly duvet.

Centa-Star limited editions

Cosy

The snuggly duvet with the 3D effect

We have already engineered a few duvets that you can use without bed linen − but the new Cosy duvet is our most beautiful so far! Having presented its predecessor, Secrets, in 2018, 2019 sees a new version of this feminine duvet! We have kept the beautiful floral design, but completely changed the technology. The floral design is applied to the cosy fabric made from soft breeze material in a special embossing technique followed by a grinding process. The result of these two techniques is not only that the pattern appears in relief with a 3D effect, but also a duvet with a matchless velvety touch. You will feel it when you run your fingers over it.

The Stripes duvet not only looks gorgeous, it is also fluffy and dimensionally stable and spoils you with an incredible snuggle factor. It shines not only from the outside, but also excels with its inner values. The premium quality of Stripes does not reveal itself at first glance, but after a certain time.

Structure

The summer highlight 2019

Structure is our answer to hot summer nights. This airy duvet in summer white has two sides: one is completely smooth, while the other is made of a textured seersucker fabric, a material that is particularly known as a fabric for summer bedding. We figured that what’s perfect for bed linen can’t fail to be perfect for a summer duvet! This was the idea behind our double-sided duvet Structure, which we engineered especially for you to use it without bed linen, giving you a wonderfully lightweight duvet. You can turn the Structure duvet over, depending on how it feels on your skin and how hot it is. On especially hot nights, we recommend that you place the seersucker side towards

your skin, as the soft puckered effect allows for better air circulation.

Tradition

A feather-light sleep experience in luxury and elegance

This very special collection has its own very special story. We found the soft down used in the Tradition duvet during a visit to the “Bauerles Besen” restaurant in Fellbach-Schmiden following our sales team meeting. The house speciality was home-grown goose, free-range goose to be more precise. In a natural meadow orchard environment in Waiblingen-Bittenfeld, the geese are raised in harmony with nature and fully in line with the requirements of the breed. Sustainability, animal welfare and social responsibility are vitally important in the long-established and family-run business of the Bauerle
