Hypnos Wins the Interiors Monthly Sustainability Award
Luxury British bed manufacturer, Hypnos, is celebrating after claiming a much-coveted Interiors Monthly Award.
Renowned for crafting bespoke beds for retailers, interior designers and the hospitality industry alike, Hypnos has been presented the Sustainability award by the publication’s editor in recognition of its dedicated commitment to low carbon, ethical manufacturing and sustainability. The achievement is a renowned symbol of excellence in continuous waste and energy reduction.
And it’s fair to say that Hypnos’ strong sustainable-led vision and environmentally friendly values have helped the business scoop the honour. Every bed is handmade, without the need for energy-dependent machinery, using the finest globally sourced, natural and sustainable fibres, including fibres made from recycled plastic bottles. The business only uses FSC® and PEFC™ certified timbers that have been sourced from managed forests with full traceability, which means that all beds are 100% recyclable at the end of their life. Hypnos’ wider responsible approach is also emphasised as the first bed maker in the world to comply with the rigorous PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality standard, with this industry-leading position resulting in Hypnos being carbon neutral for the last 7 years.
Chris Ward, Group Marketing Director at Hypnos, said: “As a business which prides itself on ethical trading and creating beds made from natural and sustainable materials, we are absolutely delighted to have won this award and been recognised by the industry in this way. An accolade such as this is a great way of cementing our commitment to the environment and signals that our sustainable ethos is completely embedded within the business.
“Our responsible focus to the environment and to the communities we operate in also sees Hypnos getting involved in exciting tree planting projects in local schools, as well as active engagement with careers and skills fairs through our Apprenticeship and Young Enterprise Schemes. Our involvement in international sustainability projects include supporting the reduction of deforestation in Brazil and helping supply clean water in Uganda, reinforcing our commitment to creating a low carbon world.”
With sustainably-designed bed production at the core of the company’s values, its sustainable credentials also extend to aftercare. The business offers retailers a full disposal service for old beds, with Hypnos’ sister company, The Furniture Recycling Company, deconstructing beds to create recycled raw materials for re-use in other industries. This responsible approach results in 100% landfill avoidance and offers a green and responsible way of disposing of old mattresses and bedding.
