Soft-Motion slat system is an all-natural ergonomic slat system solution made of solid ash wood slats supported by flexible latex beams. It has the ability to react dynamically to pressure to follow the movement of the sleeper as she or he moves during sleep. Soft Motion is the result of years of experience in ergonomic sleep solutions and has been designed with the best French experts.
The all-natural Zepto mattress has been designed to go together with the Soft-Motion system. It is not advisable to use a thicker mattress than Zepto because that would prevent the slat system motion to be effective.
Soft-Motion can be configured in different ways to adapt to the weight of the sleeper. For a double bed, 140cm and up, 2 Soft-Motion slat systems, half the width, will go. Each one can be configured independently of the other to give the best support to the regular sleeper on that side.
- In width 70, 80, 90 and 100cm Soft-Motion includes 2 full beams (left and right). A third 2/3 beam is sold separately to give more support if needed.
- In width 140cm Soft-Motion includes 3 full beams (left, right, and middle). A fourth full beam is sold separately to give more support if needed.
Latex beams on each side can be medium or firm. Additionally, a 2/3 beam can be placed in the middle to provide more support to the hips while leaving softness on the shoulder. Below are the indicative configurations for one side depending of the weight of the sleeper. These are purely indicative. The middle 2/3 beams can be placed or removed as necessary depending of the comfort one need. Everything is adjustable so that no mistake can be made. If you choose one configuration and find it too soft or too firm, we will adjust it to your need.
For double beds in 140cm width that are used by only one person, it is possible to configure a single Soft-Motion in that width. Below are the indicative possible configurations.
Choice of configuration
When ordering Soft-Motion, just add a comment to your order to specify the configuration (medium or firm) you need. The middle 2/3 beam is sold separately.
Soft-Motion 140cm is sold with 3 beams. The additional full length beam is sold separately.

Beams are of square section, 10cm x 10cm, in the length of the bed. They are made of 100% natural latex protected in a first jersey cover made of organic cotton. The external cover is made of a sturdy organic cotton canvas fabric that holds the slats. All covers are equipped with zippers so they can be opened and serviced.
Slats have a specific ellipsoidal shape that helps the dynamic of the system. They are made of solid ash wood that is known to be very resistant to flexion. There are 26 slats on a 2m long bed. Slats can last a lifetime.
The slats cover is zipped on both sides of the latex beams on top of the slats. It is made in the same sturdy organic cotton canvas fabric than the beams cover. It protects the mattress against possible abrasion on the slat and it holds the slats together.
Soft-Motion slat system can be made available in others sizes than the standard ones offered above. Length of 210cm or 220cm are possible. Please contact us for any specific demand.
The solid wood beds we propose are all made to receive the Soft-Motion slat system. That is, they have support for the latex beams on each side and in the middle. In order to fit Soft-Motion slat system in a bed that was not conceived for it, an adaptive layer of slats is necessary to provide beams support. That is the role of our Slat Foundation sold separately on the site.
Care and maintenance
It is important to regularly let the bedroom aerate with the window opened and the mattress uncovered. Soft-Motion slat system provides space so that the mattress can ventilate. In case of necessity, it is possible to hand wash the slat system covers. Everything is accessible to be washed or cleaned.
Soft-Motion slat system is warrantied for 5 years against any sagging above normal. Latex in the beams can last over 10 years while slats and covers can last a lifetime. Once needed, it is possible to change the latex of the beams while keeping the complete system for another decade. That is our concept of sustainability.
