HOLLANDIA, the company specialized in sleep engineering, launches for the first time in Israel three innovative products:

 

· Tempur Sleep Center, experiential simulation room that provides a feeling of floating in space.

· Pierre Cardin collection.

· 4 SEASONS warm cover.

 

HOLLANDIA brings to Israel for the first time the experiential Tempur Sleep Center, a revolutionary sleep center, a sleeping room that makes you feel as floating in space.

 

This room is presently available in the company branches in Herzliya, Jerusalem, Haifa and other cities. Now, everyone can try the Tempur mattresses in previously unseen conditions. The experiential Tempur Sleep Center is a simulation room having adjustable beds with the pampering Tempur mattresses. The room is built without ceiling, it is not opaque nor transparent, and with soft lighting to provide sleeping room atmosphere. The screens in the room show a film that explains the unique development of the Tempur mattress, where the Tempur Sleep Center, also known as Space Cabin, operates continuously, every item in it moves, so that a vivid experience of floating in space is created.

 

Tempur mattresses are especially pampering. The Tempur material was originally developed by NASA for the production of space pillows for astronauts. It has an unusual capability for pressure spreading. This capability enables these mattresses to provide an experience of healthy and comfortable sleep, and a feeling of weightless sleep. The Tempur mattress structure provides all the conditions for natural, deep and continuous sleep.

 

The Tempur Sleep Center experience is offered free of charge for everybody.

Simulation duration: 7 minutes.

This room is available in the company branches in Herzliya, Jerusalem, Haifa and other cities.

The collection also includes towels in a variety of colors and shapes.

 

HOLLANDIA launches the 4 SEASONS innovative, high-quality and pampering blanket, for the coming winter and the following seasons.

 

This blanket consists of two parts that can be attached or separated, as needed, and, as labeled, can be used during all 4 seasons. In the transitional seasons, autumn and spring, you can use a blanket that weighs 250 grams. In the summer you can suffice with a 125-grams blanket, and in winter you can attach both for a warmer and pampering 375-grams blanket.

 

The blanket is made of 100% fine and softened polyester micro fibers, with a texture made of squares. The blanket quality is determined by the number of contained stitches. Since this blanket contains long fibers and relatively few stitches, the quality of its isolation is high.

 

The 4 SEASONS blanket is especially healthy. It is anti-bacterial and repels dust mites. The blanket fibers undergo a special treatment that impedes living space for dust mites. In addition, the blanket is well ventilated and enables pleasant and good sleep during the whole night.

 

The blanket is very comfortable for use. Unlike other blankets, it can be cleaned very easily, using a washing machine, and dried easily using a drier.

 

The blanket is produced in Spain using 100% recycled materials.

 

Prices:

Single-size blanket, 150-200 cm at launching price of 785 NIS.

Double-size blanket, 200-220 cm at launching price of 1275 NIS.

 

Selling place:

President Reuven Rivlin today (Wednesday) met at his residence in Jerusalem with United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Nikki R. Haley.

President Rivlin welcomed her and said, “You are a dear friend of Israel. We appreciate your strong stand on the world’s most important stage, in support of the security of the people and the State of Israel. With your support we see the beginning of a new era. Israel is no longer alone at the UN. Israel is no longer the UN’s punching bag.”

He continued, “When I spoke at the UN on Holocaust Memorial Day, I said that the UN must learn from the lessons of the past, and stand up against hatred and racism. I said it must end its obsession with targeting Israel. Progress has been made. Israel’s standing at the UN has improved. But sadly, we have a long way to go. Both in holding to account, public statements made by officials, and in supporting regulation to reduce the ridiculous number of discussions and resolutions against Israel. This is also true in the Human Rights Council - which has been hijacked as a weapon against Israel - and in UNESCO, where they seek to rub out the history of the Jewish people.”

The President thanked the Ambassador for her great contribution to the State of Israel, and said, “Ambassador Haley, as the representative the US - Israel’s greatest and strongest ally - we appreciate very much your support of Israel, and all you do to stand up for the values of freedom and democracy which we share. Welcome to Israel, welcome to Jerusalem.”

Ambassador Haley thanked the President for his warm welcome and said, “Thank you Mr. President for taking the time to meet with us, it is an absolute thrill to be here in Israel, I so much appreciate the support we have received from the people of Israel. But I feel somewhat guilty because all I did at the United Nations was tell the truth. I have never taken kindly to bullies, and the UN has bullied Israel for a very long time, and we are not going to let that happen anymore. It is a new day for Israel in the United Nations. We just got back from Geneva, talking about the Human Rights Council and hopefully it will be a new day at the Human Rights Council when it comes to Israel.”

She concluded by saying she was greatly looking forward to her visit to Israel and said, “I am looking forward to taking in the history, the beauty, the tradition, and all that comes with the magic of Israel. Thank you very much for having me it is a pleasure to be here.”
