Garden Grove, CA (March 5th, 2010) - The leading manufacturer of sustainable modular mattress for the hotel industry, Sterling Sleep Systems, has been chosen by a major design firms WATG and IDEO as the mattress of choice in their winning Sustainable Suite Design Competition entry.
Sponsored by the U.S. Green Building Council, USGBC, ASID and NEWH, entries in the Sustainable Design Suite Design Competition were judged by a panel of 9 Industry experts. Tony Hochschild, president of Sterling Sleep Systems speaks to the prestige of the Sustainable Suite Design Competition, “The significance of this contest is elevated by the fact that judging was based on LEED design criteria as the standard.”
LEED’s commercial interior requirements, provision Materials Reuse (MR) 4, call for projects to include materials, including furniture, with recycled content. MR4 is a LEED requirement and depending on the percentage of recycled materials used can earn 1-2 points. Sterling Sleep System beds were selected by WATG because of the high level of recycled content, totaling 95%, in their steel spring systems and genuine sustainable design featuring replaceable, interchangeable parts.
“We are proud that Sterling’s Sustainable mattresses are specified by WATG IDEO in their USGBC Sustainable Suite Design Competition winning entry. All Sterling mattresses are built using Leggett and Platt spring systems made in USA which supports our domestic economy and reduces the environmental impacts resulting from transportation,” added Hochschild.
WATG’s winning design will be showcased at the HD EXPO in Las Vegas, NV from May 19-21, 2010. The Sustainable Suite Design will be displayed in a 400 square foot model hotel room located just outside the Exhibit Hall entrance at the Sands Convention Center.
