NEW YORK—Nanobionic® has created a global partnership with La-Z-Boy Inc. a major producer of residential furniture, and Culp, Inc., a global marketer of upholstery fabrics for residential and commercial furniture.
Culp is also a major manufacturer and marketers of mattress fabrics for bedding. It markets a variety of fabrics to its global customer base of bedding and furniture companies, including fabrics produced at Culp’s manufacturing facilities and fabrics sourced through other suppliers. Culp says it has manufacturing and sourcing operations located in the United States, Canada, China, Vietnam, Turkey, and Haiti.
As a result of this partnership, Nanobionic technology will now be used in Culp upholstery fabric that is exclusively offered in La-Z-Boy’s newly launched Restore by Nanobionic furniture collection.
Nanobionic is a mineral-based coating that blends science with wellness and recovery. It is applied as a soft coating on any type of textile, leather, or artificial leather, providing the benefit of improving energy and recovery, the producer says. Restore by Nanobionic is said to transform natural body heat into energy.
The company says when Nanobionic® technology comes in proximity with the human body, the minerals are activated with body heat, and they begin emitting Infrared IR rays back to the body. This is said to help the body to rejuvenate, increases general wellness, and promote restful sleep.
Nanobionic technology has been validated through several independent (published) scientific studies, that have proven a variety of performance, sleep, and wellness benefits. The FDA has determined that Nanobionic products are medical devices, as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, and are also General Wellness products. Nanobionic has also been awarded by NASA iTech as a top 10 finalist and as one of the companies that could impact space exploration.
