The only mattress and pillow brand recognized by NASA* and certified by the Space Foundation**
At the heart of each mattress and pillow we create is our iconic TEMPUR® Material, born from NASA technology. In the late 1960s, NASA scientists invented an entirely new material that was then used aboard space shuttles. Our founders realized the material’s unique potential. So they took that original NASA invention and spent years perfecting it into TEMPUR® Material and created the world’s first viscoelastic mattress and pillow.
First proving its value in the healthcare sector, TEMPUR is now found in bedrooms around the world, transforming the sleep of millions. That’s why we’re the only mattress and pillow brand recognized by NASA for improving the quality of life*. This honour sets us apart, keeps us humble and inspires us to continually innovate, for sleep that’s out of this world - and it all started with those original NASA scientists
*The company and its products were recognized by NASA. At a joint press conference on May 6, 1998, at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C., NASA recognized TEMPUR®’s outstanding achievements in adapting the original NASA technology for everyday use and improving the quality of life.
