The science of 
sleeping smarter

Most people think of sleep as the opposite of awake. That sleep means switching off. But in fact, when we sleep our brains are active restoring the body. We optimise this state by creating products designed with your best sleep in mind.

the bedroom

The positive effects of sleep can dramatically improve our wellbeing. Understanding this, we set out to develop ways to optimise precious sleep in the 21st Century.

We know the ideal conditions for a full night’s sleep can be elusive, so we make products that help you find moments of rest and comfort, day and night.

Waking up to sleep

Sleep is the ultimate ‘me time’.

A time when both mind and body can rest and reset.

But it’s not always easy to find good restorative sleep in the 21st Century. Yet it’s so integral to our wellbeing and energy.

Hyoumankind was born through founder Stephanie Wyborn’s own experience with sleep. Often waking up feeling less than wonderful in body and appearance, she began a six-year journey to discover the connections between sleep position, health and wellness.

The result is the Hyoumankind range of design protected, New Zealand made premium memory foam pillows. They combine rigorous science, innovative manufacturing techniques and human experience to support people in the optimal position to rejuvenate, recover, and relax mind and body.

Hyoumankind takes a mindful approach to sleep and rest. We’re here to change the way people think about sleep, helping them rediscover its natural restorative benefits. We are constantly researching the science of sleep to create premium quality products from high grade, non-toxic materials. Each one specifically designed to help you recover from injury, enjoy ergonomic comfort every day and find deep restorative sleep every night.

Our pillows are used and loved by elite sportspeople, appearance experts, postural practitioners and those looking for a little extra support – as more and more people wake up to sleep.
