Bedding provided to
the athletes' village for
the Tokyo 2020 Games
airweave has conducted product development with the goal of continuing to be the brand of choice for those always seeking the best for the world’s most preeminent events like the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Over the past three years, we have brought together our existing knowledge and technology to develop the bedding supplied to the athletes' dormitories. We will support the athletes by providing them with the best bedding ever, so that each and every one of them can perform their best in this major event that only comes round once every four years.
Background to development
How bedding affects sleep quality and sporting performance
The quality of sleep depends on the type of bedding used. After years of research, airweave found that the quality of sleep in different bedding affects exercise performance the next morning. airweave bedding has moderate resilience and excellent breathability to improve sleep quality.
For an “individualized” mattress for each athlete and their body types
In past Athletes Villages, every athlete received the same mattress despite their varying body types. However, depending on events and competition, height, weight, and muscle build differ largely. So, we designed an individualized mattress capable of customizing.
Straightening the spine and maintaining an ideal sleeping position can reduce stress on the body during sleep.
We will provide an optimal sleep environment to ensure that each athlete can achieve their best performance.
The three parts have different firmness on both sides. The firmness type can be changed freely by swapping the front and back and changing the position.
Commitment to environmental conservation
Mattress types vary according to height, weight, and muscularity.
Mattresses personalized to each athlete helps support their sleep.
Environmentally friendly bedding made from sustainable materials
Spring coil and other conventional mattresses are disassembled by hand after use and disposed of as industrial waste. As industrial waste has increased in recent years, environmental pollution has become a serious problem. airweave, meanwhile, uses a proprietary material made from polyethylene resin “airfiber®,” which is then recycled into polyethylene material for use in plastic products.
In addition, since the bed frame is made of renewable cardboard and the pillow and the quilt are made of polyester, all the bedding used in the athletes’ village can be reused and recycled. In addition to supplying bedding, we will be in charge of handling the bedding after the Games, and will contribute to the Tokyo 2020 Games goal of realizing a sustainable society.
