Rinnovo blends foam and Pianna’s V/Smart fiber technology to create a more sustainable and comfortable mattress.

Cartersville, Georgia-based Piana Sleep, a division of Piana Technology dedicated to pushing the mattress industry forward through sustainability and design, has debuted the Rinnovo mattress.  

Rinnovo blends foam and Pianna’s V/Smart fiber technology to create a more sustainable and comfortable mattress. Additionally, Pianna offers a take-back promise — at the end of the mattress’ life, the company will recycle it with zero waste and give the mattress a new life, according to a news release. 

V/Smart includes fibers that are vertically arranged in a high-loft nonwoven design that delivers a nontoxic, odor-free, VOC-free environment, company officials said. The design includes the company’s molecular printing technology that infuses molecular compounds into materials tailored to deliver benefits, such as active cooling, customizable aromatherapy, antimicrobial protection, sleep and mood enhancers, and more, the release said. 

“The Rinnovo is the first of many new Piana Sleep products that will marry sustainability with industry-changing technology and world-class design,” said Silvia Galasso, executive vice president of Piana Sleep. “Piana is dedicated to breaking the status quo of how mattresses get made. Using more sustainable practices like solar power, paired withour ability to create a circular design and close the loop at the end of our product’s life, our goal is to be the catalyst for sustainability and circular economy within the industries we serve.” 

Pianna Sleep is focused on the hospitality and retail spaces with Rinnovo. “We’re passionate about joining forces with partners that share our vision of changing the world, helping the environment and creating a better sleep experience for consumers,” said Chris Henning, vice president of business development at Piana Sleep. “We can ensure that our partners will be the first in the marketplace with an innovative product that truly helps keep mattresses out of landfills and provides true comfort to everyone choosing it.” 

The Rinnovo mattress is made with Piana recycled technology, resulting in 46% fewer CO2 emissions than a comparable all-foam mattress, takes up to 52% less energy to make and is up to 31% lighter than an equivalent all-foam mattress, according to the release. 

“Landfills are a huge problem in today’s world,” Galasso said. “It is estimated that in 

the U.S. alone, 50k mattresses get discarded in landfills every single day, each polluting our Earth for centuries. These mattresses would form a daily stack taller than Mt. Everest, and in a year, they would form a line that nearly goes around the Earth at the Equator. With our take-back promise, we are taking full responsibility for diverting our products from landfills while enabling our retail and hospitality partners to join forces with us and establish themselves as leaders of change.”
