Sleep soundly in a perfectly made bed Some good advice: choose your bed with care. It often takes people years to realize this. It’s important to choose the right bed. After all, this is where you will spend around a third of your life. With our affordable Unicum sleeping system, we help young people to sleep in a natural and healthy manner. Young people are our future. They are innovative and creative – building a live for themselves and finding their niche. This is precisely why we developed the Unicum sleeping system. The good news is that you can really look forward to a deep and restful sleep every night. We want you to wake up feeling motivated, inspired and full of energy– ready to seize the day. In a Unicum from Hüsler Nest you will sleep soundly and wake up fully refreshed. The Unicum system comprises a natural latex mattress, a slatted core support and a Talalay latex element with coconut board. The slatted core support, which is a newly developed construction, forms the basis of the system. Unicum guarantees ideal support of the spine,
regardless of your physique, weight or sleeping position. The naturally obtained raw materials that are used ensure that you can sleep in a dry, healthy climate and in absolute comfort. These features make Unicum much more than just somewhere to lie down. It is a place where you can switch off and recharge your batteries. A place where you can tank up on energy and joie-de-vivre. A place where you can be yourself, where you can find time, take it easy and perhaps gain inspiration, where you can get away from it all, where you can shrug off the burdens of the day, where you can feel at home and rediscover what really counts in life. We regard this as our own small contribution towards a better world.
Natural raw materials are renewable resources. H端sler Nest thinks in terms of renewable cycles.
The natural challenge Whether wood, wool or natural latex – a Hüsler Nest is made exclusively of natural materials. Our raw materials come from sustainable, ecologically controlled production – out of respect for nature and the nature of people. We know our suppliers. They place the same high demands on themselves that we do. Our work would be much simpler if we weren’t committed to working only with natural products. Industrially produced raw materials are ordered and processed quickly. Natural products, however, depend on production cycles and harvest
yields. This is why they cost more and need to be subject to continuous quality control. Working with nature takes experience, time and passion. Refraining from the use of chemicals and metals and focusing on gentle processes and sustainability takes commitment. Nature challenges us every day. It cannot be standardised. It teaches us humility. However, we believe this challenge also enriches our lives – and our success confirms this.
The earth’s “green lung”, construction material for generations, renewable fuel used from the beginning of human history: An incredibly diverse resource, wood has been an important contributing factor in the success of mankind. Wood provides warmth and safety – just what we need and want in a bed. In the Hüsler Nest, wood also ensures an optimal balance of moisture, and in our unique Unicum unit, it ensures ergonomically correct rest throughout the night.
For millennia, people have protected themselves against the cold with wool. Virgin sheep’s wool has natural thermoregulating properties. Wool fibres can store up to 33% of their dry weight in moisture, while the surface of the fibre repels water. Since the wool conveys liquid quickly, it never feels moist. Up to 85% of the volume of woollen goods consists of air. This makes them excellent heat insulators. Wool is also flame-retardant, which enhances safety. In contrast to synthetic fibres, wool does not easily soil or absorb smells (e.g. from sweat), and it is naturally self-cleaning. It quickly releases odours back into the air again. So, after just a short period of airing, wool will smell neutral and fresh again.
Natural latex Latex is produced from the rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). This tree is a member of the spurge family and is originally from South America. Natural latex mattresses are in the market’s highest quality segment and retain their elasticity for a very long time. Latex is bacteriostatic and does not require any chemical treatment. It also provides for a good thermal balance and repels moisture.
A genuine natural product that awakens associations of paradise. Coconut fibres, sometimes referred to as “coir”, are produced from coconut shells. Processed into boards, we use them in our products, as they provide for outstanding ventilation. Coconut fibres are very strong and elastic and are long lasting.
If you think maize is an unusual material to make a bed from, you can rest assured. For a special bed like a Hüsler Nest, it is in fact an excellent choice of material. Maize originated in Mexico and offers many advantages as a textile. It has outstanding heat insulating properties, is extraordinarily fluffy and it is the ideal washable alternative for people who suffer from allergies. Like all the natural raw materials Hüsler Nest uses to make its sleeping systems, maize fibres are produced from renewable resources.
Cotton Cotton is a very old cultivated plant which we use as a material in our covers and sheets. Cotton is gentle, breathable and washable. It absorbs up to 65% of its own weight in water. Cotton is therefore an ideal material from which to make the covers and cases for our quilts, pillows and overlays. We only use cotton that is grown in natural crop rotation and processed in an ecologically friendly manner. So you can rest in comfort knowing that care was taken to protect the environment.
The right Hüsler Nest for everyone The essence of a good idea can be applied to different requirements. In addition to the Hüsler Nest Original and Hüsler Nest Designa, we also offer the Hüsler Nest Unicum. Each of these models meets our high quality standards and offers a unique profile of special features. Hüsler Nest Original meets all the demands of a good bed. It is reduced to what is essential and offers unparalleled sleeping comfort. It is a solid and proven product and the foundation of the success of Hüsler Nest. If you value extra style and elegance, you will love Hüsler Nest Designa. We recommend
Designa to customers who would like to invest just a little bit more in natural and healthy sleep and who especially appreciate that established tradition can be successfully incorporated into a contemporary form. With our economically priced line, Unicum, we want to make naturally healthy sleep affordable for our more price-conscious customers. The Unicum sleeping system can be used together with all conventional frame inserts.
Sleep well and wake up refreshed

overlayed with 40 trimelles permits freedom of movement in three dimenÂsions. Special air vents along the entire length of the system guarantee an optimal sleeping climate. The three elements ensure that you sleep in an optimal position all night long and wake up the next morning feeling fully refreshed.
The Unicum sleeping system comprises three elements: a mattress cover, a natural latex mattress and a slatted core support. It is based on a newly developed construction: the slatted core support. This takes the form of a thin coconut board which ensures absolute stability. A new element made of Talalay latex is affixed to the coconut board with non-toxic glue. The construction which comprises lengthwise slats
Unicum mattress cover
Unicum mattress cover The various components of a H端sler Nest are designed to work optimally together. Each component has its own specific function, and each element has its own specific purpose. It is the interaction of a variety of factors at a variety of levels that make sure you can sleep in a dry and healthy climate. The natural latex mattress and slatted core support are enclosed in a mattress cover. This means that the Unicum sleeping system is easy to use and can be placed in any desired bedstead with the aid of a suitable frame. The overlay of the mattress cover consists of 80 percent wool and 20 percent
maize fibres, and it is equipped with a zipper on three sides. Since the cover is non-washable, we recommend using an additional woollen overlay that can be regularly aired.
Natural latex mattresses
Original natural latex mattress
Original natural latex mattress This mattress is made of 100% pure, environmentally friendly, natural latex. Natural latex is durable and has good point elasticity. Regardless of how often you change position during the night, the Original natural latex mattress keeps its shape and firmness â€“ for many, many years. This mattress also has outstanding heat- and moisture-regulating properties and is bacteriostatic. In other words, it stays hygenically pure. It is available in two degrees of
hardness, soft and medium, and heights of 10 or 13 centimetres. The natural latex matress is covered entirely in cotton tricot of the finest quality.

Honey natural latex mattress
Honey natural latex mattress We not only benefit from nature, we can learn a lot from it too. Bees were the master足minds behind the perfect structure of this natural latex mattress. The honeycomb structure of the Honey natural latex mattress is made up of thousands of cells. These ensure that your sleeping comfort is of unprecedented softness, which is impossible to achieve with a regular pin hole design. In spite of the light weight of this mattress, its structure provides unbeat足 able stability and longevity. The open structure also facilitates optimal ventilation of the mattress across the entire lying area. The Honey
natural latex mattress thus offers optimal hygiene and moisture-regulating properties.

In the case of the Unicum sleeping system, this is the Unicum slatted core support, which uses a thin coconut board to provide the necessary stability and firmness. An element made of Talalay latex comprising longitudinal supports over the entire length of the mattress is glued to the coconut board. Situated on top of this are 40 trimelles affixed with cotton cloth tape, creating a unique, effective, cotton-encased construction. The trimelles can move flexibly in all directions without compromising the stability of the mattress. The interaction of the various slatted
core support elements is similar to the effect of the spring element in other beds made by H端sler Nest. It optimally supports the spine all night long and ensures a dry, healthy sleeping climate.
