TRADITIONALLY, mattresses are sold in retail stores at exorbitant prices.
For example, a memory foam mattress retails in the range of RM3,000 to RM10,000 on average for a standard queen size.
A pocket spring mattress retails in the range of RM2,000 to RM15,000 on average, and a latex mattress retails within the range of RM1,500 to RM8,000 on average.
Besides the pricing and inconvenience from trying the mattresses in-store, there are many areas that can be revolutionised and improved.
Origin Mattress Malaysia was founded by Aron Aiden Loh, 26 and Ajiahe “Gee” Sipin, 25, with the vision of revolutionising mattress shopping for the masses.
Loh and Gee, who come from a business background, believe that quality mattresses don’t need to come with a huge price tag. For months, they worked with German engineers to design and test their flagship model – the Origin hybrid mattress.
“Germany has the best engineers when it comes to mattress technology,” says Loh.
“We wanted to create the perfect mattress that not only feels comfortable to sleep on, but is also tailored to solve everyday problems for Malaysians such as hot weather and body aches.”
The Origin hybrid mattress is the only six-layer mattress in Malaysia and consists of cooling gel memory foam, pocket springs and natural latex.
This means that shoppers no longer need to be confused about different mattress types, and instead can enjoy the best of these quality materials in one mattress.
“Trying a mattress for a few minutes in a showroom isn’t a realistic way to test if it suits your body,” Gee says.
“That’s why we allow customers to try it for 120 nights from the comfort of their home, and even deliver free of charge to their home.”
Origin Mattress is the only mattress brand to offer a 120-night trial – the longest among all mattress brands in Malaysia.
Loh and Gee are so confident that customers will love the quality, they also offer a 15-year warranty (also the longest in Malaysia) and 100% money-back guarantee.
Such offers are indeed rare even in the online businesses of mattress brands today.
Origin Mattress Malaysia is also one of the few brands that confidently offers both an affordable price and quality.
“By cutting out the middleman, we are able to bring products direct from factory to consumers,” says Loh.
“This helps customers to save a huge sum of money and yet enjoy the finest mattress quality at an affordable price.”
Amidst rising popularity, the company has been expanding its product line. New offerings include pillows, mattress toppers and bedding.
Loh and Gee also confirm that a range of exciting new products are in the works and consumers can expect their second generation Origin Hybrid Pro Mattress – a premium version of the flagship model which is more cooling and comfortable, and compatible with adjustable bed bases — to hit Malaysian shores soon.
And they all come at affordable prices, as per their creed. Designed in contemporary style, they are all engineered to deliver the optimal sleep experience.
The pair is confident that such innovations will continue to keep Origin Mattress Malaysia ahead of the curve in the industry, even in decades to come.
To date, Origin Mattress has found huge success across Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and will further expand into more countries this year.
