AllergoProtect – the world’s first for people with allergies
After more than two years of development, Centa-Star launches a sensation in the bedding market with a duvet that binds allergens like a magnet, especially designed for people with allergies. Previously, they had to choose between duvets and pillows with rustling, non-breathable encasings or a biocide finishing.
With the purely physical principle of AllergoProtect, people with allergies can now also enjoy all the advantages of a lightweight, soft and breathable duvet without restrictions. AllergoProtect was clinically tested in a study with subjects suffering from dust mite allergy, examined by the Hohenstein Institutes and was awarded the ECARF certificate and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Class I.
Summer of ExplorationWelcome to Scandinavia
Our colourful summer duvets of the year 2017
The fjord is as smooth as glass in a deep blue. A stone’s throw away, a roaring waterfall crashes down to a lake. Glaciers loom on the mountains in the distance. And the sea with its untamable power is omnipresent.
The power and grace of the sea
Where water and air meet on these coasts and waterfalls at full force, foamy spray is created as a wild allegory of the
forces of nature sputters. In quieter realms, water draws a different, wonderful pattern: even, harmonious waves of a glacial creek spread into a crystal clear fjord. This contrast between the roaring power and the gentle burbling of water is the subject of Centa-Star’s summer duvets 2017, both in colour and in structure.
Summer 2017: “Summer of Exploration“ – too beautiful to be hidden inside bed linen
This contrast between the roaring power and the gentle burbling of water is the subject of Centa-Star’s summer duvets 2017, both in colour and in structure. This year, you can choose between two real eyecatchers in wonderful aqua colours. The motif of the “Water” duvet is wild and powerful, while “Wave” radiates harmony and softness. Both duvets are your airy companion in hot summer nights. Especially engineered to be used without bed linen, “Summer of Exploration” is as light and pleasant on the skin as a sea breeze making your bed breakers into your bedroom.

Neck support pillows, special pillows and pillow barInnovative hybrid foams and smart pillows
Relax Smartpillow: your sleep coach in the pillow
Ein kleiner Sensor macht den großen Unterschied zwischen einem normalen Kissen und dem Smartpillow. Der wenige Zentimeter große, flache Sensor ist fest im Kissen vernäht und verrät Ihnen per App zahlreiche nächtliche Geheimnisse: Wann sind ihre tiefsten Schlafphasen? Wie viel bewegen Sie sich im Schlaf? Wie oft wachen Sie auf? Reden Sie im Schlaf oder schnarchen Sie? Während Sie sich nachts an das Relax Smartpillow kuscheln, zeichnet es all diese Daten auf. Die dazugehörige App gibt Ihnen auf Grundlage Ihrer Schlafhistorie Tipps für einen besseren Schlaf. So können Sie im Laufe einiger Wochen Ihre Schlafqualität verbessern und eventuelle Ursachen von Schlafstörungen identifizieren.
Apart from recording the information in the night, the Relax Smartpillow also wakes you up relaxed in the morning. You can set a time in the app at which you want to wake up. The Relax Smartpillow records your moves and will wake you up in the sleep stage most favourable for waking up with a vibrating pillow or your smartphone alarm ringtone – just as you prefer. Another advantage of the Relax Smartpillow is, typical Centa-Star, that it is easy to care for. The Relax Smartpillow can be washed in the washing machine with gentle wash at 40°C and spun at a speed of up to 900 rpm. It cannot be tumble dried. If you shake the pillow regularly, it will keep its shape and volume over many years.
Relax Space – the all-rounder among the neck support pillows
The hybrid foam of the Relax Space consists of a polyurethane foam in a cheerful yellow, interspersed with many small viscoelastic balls. In the manufacturing of this hybrid foam, a special liquid is modified into elastic particles in a chemical process. These small balls capture the body weight and transform the active forces into a flexible back movement.
The cover has an Outlast® Heat Spreader coating which is a heat conducting mesh. This glossy silver mesh spreads the heat for a passive temperature balancing effect. The hybrid foam in combination with the ergonomic cube cut and the cooling cover creates an incredibly pleasant feeling when lying on it.
Pillow bar – 4x4 options for the pillow of your dreams
The pillow bar is our personal success story, which is now entering its fourth year. Our concept to allow customers to choose their bespoke favourite pillow from four cores and four casings went down very well. In the two years since its launch, we have received a lot of feedback about the Pillow Bar. In a workshop with dealers, advisory staff and customers, we translated this feedback into concrete product improvements.
The result is a bundle of modifications, some small and some big. In all, we optimised three cores and three casings. Two out of the eight Pillow Bar products seem to have been perfectly designed right from the beginning, as the expert team did not have any proposals for improvement: the Medium core remains at it is and the Vario 2 casing only changes its name to Vario Breeze.

Eco Line fibre and Eco Line downOur first sustainable collection
Eco Line: sustainable – for people and nature
Since the 1960s we have offered down duvets made from purely natural materials. Over the years, these duvets have become ever more “all natural” in their production, from the cultivation of cotton to the harvesting and cleaning of feathers.
In 2016, however, we were no longer satisfied with “all natural” and wanted to take a step forward as a company. We therefore decided to develop our first sustainable collections with “Eco line Fibre” and “Eco line Down”.
Eco Line Down – limited Edition
Down and feathers are renewable resources. But for this collection, it was really important to us that the animals that produce this valuable raw material for us were also kept sustainably. As a result, the filling of this duvet is from feathers and down sourced from Bavarian free-range ducks that grow beneath the open skies from their day of hatching.
Eco Line Fibre – limited Edition
For the filling of our sustainable fibre duvet, we use regenerated fibres, which means fibres from renewable primary products such as corn, wood, sugar and starch. The cotton casing of both duvets is made from kbA cotton (German abbreviation for certified organic cultivation) in an all natural and untreated cream look. Cotton from certified organic cultivation is healthier for our skin and contributes a lot to the protection of our environment. This is important to us!
