Sleepyhead Launches Futuristic New Mezzo Range

Sleepyhead has partnered with renowned Allbirds designer Jamie McLellan to create an extraordinary new bed, Mezzo.

With a dual-sided mattress and adjustable headrest, Mezzo has been engineered to suit the busy lifestyles we now lead. It can even be put together in under 10 minutes! Perfectly compact, as well as the adjustable headrest, Mezzo also features optional built-in bedside cabinets. Mezzo has been specially designed with high-tech materials to create a stylish, simple design that will fit into any home, no matter the budget.

The mattress has two sides, one for winter which is softer and lets you sink in a little more to stay warmer. The other side is perfect for summer, with a firmer feel and FusionGel technology to keep you cooler at night.

New Zealand Marketing Manager, Warren Roach says: “We’ve been providing Kiwis with beds for over 85 years and in that time, life has changed, as has the way we use our beds. We work anywhere, anytime and choose what we watch, and when. We run busy lives, but still value our down-time. Everything about our Mezzo bed is carefully considered and designed for the kind of lives are living now.

Group Product Development Manager, Dean Rope says: “Having been in business for so long, we are always looking for new innovative ways to create the perfect bed and, after admiring the work Allbirds have been doing, partnering with their Head of Design Jamie McLellan was key to creating this truly unique mattress.”

Available as a Queen Set, features of the Mezzo range include:

Summer side:

Straight-quilted firm feel, air-flow fabric, FusionGel for cooling

Winter side:

Wave-quilted medium feel, Tencel fabric, wool lined for warmth, latex for comfort

Pocketed coil springs

Charcoal felted ends

Foam encased for edge support

Queen RRP from $3,799, available at Smiths City stores nationwide. For more information visit
