“At Eight, we’re focused on leveraging technology to bring innovation to sleep so our customers can achieve more restful nights, productive days and ultimately live healthier lives,” said Matteo Franceschetti, CEO and Co-Founder, Eight. “This round of funding further enables us to continue to invest in personalized, data-driven sleep solutions for our customers.”
In November 2016, Eight launched its second product, the Eight Smart Mattress. Through the findings from more than 1.8 million hours of data gathered by the sleep tracker, the company set out to build a better mattress. The Eight Smart Mattress is designed with four layers of responsive and high-density foam plus a technology layer that tracks sleep metrics, warms each side of the bed individually, and connects to other smart home devices.
Eight has also opened its first showroom in New York, so potential customers can try out the mattress for themselves.
