September 6, 2011

Royal Auping is one of four finalists in the Best Client Award, a special prize within the Dutch Design Awards. Spark is proud that its nomination of Auping as the Best Client in the Netherlands has resulted in this top rating.
The winner will be announced during the awards show on 22nd October in the Frits Philips Concert Hall, Eindhoven. The jury stated that its motivation is: ‘Auping carefully selects and works with several designers, all of whom respect the demand for quality, durability and comfort'.

Traditional trendsetters
Royal Auping is the largest independent Dutch bed company with three production locations in the Netherlands. Auping started life as a blacksmiths in Deventer in 1888. Johannes Auping set a new trend more than 120 years ago with the spiral mesh bed base. The company went on to specialise in spiral beds. Later, they added mattresses and box-spring bed bases. In this way, Auping developed into the sleep specialist and market leader in the Netherlands. By continually investing in innovation and design, Auping has remained a trendsetter in sleep comfort. It focuses on three core attributes: support, pressure relief and ventilation.

Quick, substantive and flexible collaboration
Spark and Auping are working together on a whole new line of products and accessories, which take great design and smart manufacturability to a new level. We value this collaboration greatly, not least because Auping isn't afraid to pursue bold ideas. Thanks to the quick, substantive and flexible cooperation and the strong mutual trust, we are able to turn dreams of professional products into a reality. And, our involvement at every stage of the process means we are able to influence the result.
