All with the goal of giving users the best night sleep they’ve ever had. Koala keeps sleep simple by combining best-in-class comfort, cooling and support to help you get those zzz’s in.

The New Koala Mattress Range

They say the best (and worst) ideas happen when you have a couple of blokes together in a room. As is the case with Koala. The brainchild of two childhood mates from Byron Bay who dreamed up the idea of a mattress in a box. Fast forward a few years (and many interpreters) later, and the sleazy sales pitches from the mattress stores are an afterthought for those looking to upgrade their mattress. For many, Koala is the first name that comes to mind when you think “new mattress” and for good reason, it’s a simple, comfortable, and innovative product that will stand the test of time.

Fast forward almost six years from the brands first mattress-in-a-box and they’re doing it all again. With three brand spanking new mattresses at different price points that offer superior comfort – risk-free.

“We wanted to create a new customisable mattress range for everyone. And I think we outdid ourselves with three mattresses that highlight our dedication to creating products that have a minimal impact on the environment,” said Mitch Taylor, Koala CEO and Co-Founder.

With a national sleep deficit of 5.7 billion hours, it was time to reconfigure their goals. Applying the expertise and skill honed over half a decade, the brand has improved Australia’s most loved mattress range. No easy task says Mitch, “Improving Australia’s most loved mattress was no mean feat. We listened to customer feedback, and applied it directly to our new designs – and clearly, we need to get more Aussies sleeping better, our national sleep deficit is pretty bloody scary”.

New Koala Mattress

Starting off the new range is the ‘OG’ Koala mattress. This sucker sits right in the ‘Goldilocks Zone’, a technical term the brand uses that basically means ‘perfect’. That is, a matty that isn’t too firm and isn’t too soft. Implementing zero disturbance technology means it doesn’t matter who you’re sleeping next to, you’re promised a great nights sleep. Furthermore, the sleep surface made from soft TENCEL Lyocell fibre will keep you cool and comfy. It’s called the ‘OG’ for a reason.

Features:

  • 7cm Flippable Kloudcell Comfort + TENCEL Lyocell Sleep Surface
  • 3 Zone Support
  • Zero disturbance technology
  • First GECA certified mattress
  • CertiPUR-US certified foam
  • Anti-Slip Bottom
  • Anti-Bacterial Treatment

New Koala Calm As Mattress

To sink or to bounce? That is the age-old question when it comes to mattresses, and the Calm As reckons it has the answers. We’ve been lucky enough to give this bad boy a test drive for three nights and while it’s too early to share our thoughts, let’s just say we’ve missed a couple of morning yoga classes in favour of a good ‘ol sleep in. The Calm As features a clever open cell structure, a 7cm flippable comfort layer and a 1cm quilted plush cover so you can wake up feeling fresh. We have ours set to firm, and we have to say it strike that perfect balance between sink and bounce. This matty also adds COOLMAX Technology to help keep you feeling cool and dry (the secret to staying asleep longer).

Features:

  • 7cm Flippable Kloudcell Comfort With COOLMAX Technology
  • 1cm quilted plush cover
  • 3 Zone Support
  • Multi-Layered Zoning
  • StayPut Edge Support
  • Zero disturbance technology
  • First GECA certified mattress

GECA Certified

It’s nice to know how the product you purchase will fare across its lifecycle from an environmental perspective. So what exactly does GECA mean? Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) is a not-for-profit, membership-based organisation with a mission to promote environmentally preferable products and services. That means any product you purchase (like this Koala mattress) with a GECA certified label, supports environmentally preferable production and consumption.

The latest Koala mattresses are the first fully certified GECA mattresses, a massive step in the right direction for the industry whose products are often left for landfill. “GECA is extremely excited to announce the certification of Koalas new mattress range… Consumers can be sure that the product has been independently assessed to meet environmental, human health, and social impact criteria,” said CEO Michelle Thomas. By purchasing a GECA certified mattress and recycling your existing mattress responsibly with a company such as Soft Landings, you’ll be doing your part to maximise the re-use of materials.

Good Sleeps Calling

Australia’s favourite mattresses combine best-in-class comfort, cooling and support to help Aussies nod off at speed. Each and every matty fuse zonal support with zero disturbance tech to keep dream reels rolling all night long. We love the flippable medium-firm Kloudcell comfort layer on our Calm As, and we reckon you will too.
