Bed manufacturer bock (www.bock.net) will present its latest comfort bed, stellar, at the Altenpflege 2016 trade fair (Hanover, 8. – 10 March 2016): “Beds are evolving, from a place intended solely for sleep to an important piece of comfort furniture,” says Dr. Stefan Kettelhoit, Managing Director of Hermann Bock GmbH: “People are increasingly reading, surfing, watching television, making phone calls and even working in their beds.” To cater to that trend, the bed manufacturer, which is based in Verl, Germany, has developed a brand new upholstered bed for style-conscious customers. It transforms into a TV or reading chair at the touch of a button. The bed is called stellar, and can be easily configured for use in nursing applications: it features a lying surface that can be raised to heights of 80 cm as standard, and motorised back and lower leg sections. That makes stellar a particularly good fit for nursing homes and assisted living.

Convenient controls, wirelessly with a smartphone

The bed can be controlled using a wireless hand control with ‘traditional’ buttons, or a smartphone app. Of course, double beds feature separate controls for each partner. A USB charger socket for telephones and tablets is also integrated directly into the frame. The bed can be combined with a range of specially adapted mattresses and various lighting options. Below the surface, the bed boasts the state-of-the-art ripolux neo® distributed lying surface – for which Hermann Bock GmbH holds the patent. “And high-quality material, leather and wood finishes make the bed a real eye-catcher, which can be stylishly integrated into any room, as well as an outstanding comfort bed that offers a healthy, relaxing night’s sleep,” promises Dr. Stefan Kettelhoit. stellar will be available from specialist retailers from April 2016, in widths of 90-200 cm and lengths of 200-220 cm.
