Thanks to 25 years of German engineering and Italian design, we’ve created something truly exciting — the next wave in ergonomic comfort. And it all began with an unusual substance and one man’s dream.
In 1990 in Italy, Massimo Losio founded Royal Medica to license a patent from Bayer and use its unique gel material to relieve the nagging discomfort of individuals bound to wheelchairs and hospital beds. Royal Medica then expanded to other gel innovations including office chair cushions and bike seats. Making the world more comfortable became a mission.
Shortly later, Royal Medica joined with Otto Bock GmbH to create Technogel as the company that exists today. The combined expertise produced new benefits including a wider range of feels and greater durability. The joint venture also strengthed Technogel’s mission as it developed new applications for medical devices, industrial components, footwear and furniture.
Technogel’s extraordinary blend of technology and style continually earn it partnerships with noteworthy brands such as Vitra, Saporiti, Steelcase, and Prada, to name a few. Furthermore, world-class athletes look to Technogel® for the rejuvenating and restorative support required for peak performance.
Committed to be pioneers in wellness, we have paired advanced gel technology with high-end design to create mattresses and pillows that deliver a new experience of sleep.
Across 40 different countries there are people who wake up inspired every day thanks to Technogel® Sleeping. But we are especially proud to open our first flagship store as the Technogel Experience Center here in Berlin.
