How many hours of sleep does a newborn baby need? What about adults? And why does an elderly person need considerably less sleep? Well, everybody’s different – and that goes for sleep patterns too, which are as varied and individual as people themselves. This diversity is reflected by the Sleep Lounge, which is located in Hall 9 and was initiated by the German Mattress Industry Association (Fachverband Matratzen-Industrie e.V.) and imm cologne. Besides providing an opportunity for quiet talks at the café-bar, it also shares all sorts of profound and curious information in the form of lovingly designed islands displaying interesting facts about sleep – and sometimes presented with a tongue-in-cheek twist.
