Danish mattress brand Tempur Mattresses, which uses NASA technology to create its products, is to open its first store in the UK in Bluewater shopping centre this summer.

The 4,000 sq ft store will be the brand’s third worldwide following two in the US.

The Bluewater store will include a number of bedroom sets and a pillow bar in which customers can select pillows to their individual preferences. 

Bluewater owner Land Lease Guy Thomas said: “The evolution of Bluewater continues apace in 2013, with Tempur adding something quite different to our offer. 

“Their experience-led store will bring their innovative products to life, and the association with NASA creates extra appeal for technology-minded guests.”

Tempur’s mattresses are formulated from a by-product of NASA space missions.
