We’re Here to Help!
Magniflex was born in Tuscany, a region blessed by nature, where the beauty of the landscape has always inspired art and artists. In the 60’s Giuliano Magni created his first mattresses in a small workshop. It was the beginning of a journey which later on turned into a revolution. In Prato, the world capital of fabrics, the sophisticated craftsmanship was combined with the most innovative ideas on sleep and wellbeing.
Since then, Magniflex has been helping over 50 million people sleep better thanks to the solutions and technologies designed to meet their needs of comfort, relaxation and health. The company has a worldwide presence with more than 4000 retailers in 99 international markets and is the supplier of more than 500 great hotels. A young and determined management team continues the development of the Magniflex brand, along the road traced by the President Giuliano Magni.
Magniflex uses 100% Italian materials and employs the skills of specialized technicians and of more than 180 professionals that work side by side sharing their passion and know-how.
Here are a few of their certifications and endorsements Magniflex mattresses have earned:
Dolce Vita Construction & Materials
This luxury high performance mattress begins with the cover. Magniflex chose a combination of Viscose and proprietary temperature regulating Outlast® fabric to create the perfect microclimate throughout the night. Made from cellulose, viscose is an ultra-soft high-tech fiber with a silky texture that is very pleasant to the touch. Its natural properties wick away moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable.
OUTLAST® is a thermoregulatory fabric that was originally applied to the astronauts’ space suits. Outlast® is a phase change material inside which there are millions of spheres made with a special wax that melts at a temperature of 36 degrees (97 F). As soon as the body temperature starts to grow, the technology goes into action, absorbing the excess heat. When the temperature starts to fall, the spheres inside the material start to consolidate and release the accumulated heat. This allows the ideal temperature to remain constant and improve the quality of your sleep.
To make life even easier, Magniflex went a step further and put a zipper around the perimeter so you can remove and dry-clean the cover
The Dolce Vita employs dual core technology, meaning its possible to choose a twodifferent side by side comfort levels for kings and queens. Simply unzip the top and flip the cores of the mattress. The Medium Firm side features a layer in Memoform (2″) for a cozy, yet supportive comfort. The Firm side on the other hand features a layer in Elioform and provides firm support for your back.
Memofoam contours to your body’s shape, giving a luxurious feeling of lightness and relaxation. The Super Soft Fiber padding presents exceptional qualities of softness and breathability allowing heat to be pulled away from the body. This fiber guarantees a delicate and enveloping support to the whole body, as if it were being gently cuddled.
Memoform is the most anatomical of all the materials used in Magniflex’s production and is designed to react to the weight of the body and to adapt perfectly to any type of build. This characteristic generates a pleasant feeling of ease and lightness while a person is asleep and helps the spine relax.
The support layer consists of Elioform (6 1/2″). Due to its high-density micro-cellular structure, Eliofoam offers ideal support to your spine, while keeping the back in the right position. This foam has a high-density micro-cellular structure that offers optimal support, elasticity and breathability.
Magniflex does not tuft its mattress, meaning the cover is not attached to the comfort and support layers. This is for two reasons, first, the cover is removable so it can be easily cleaned. Second, the mattress surface is flat. There are no hills and valleys to feel underneath when you lay on the mattress. For those that silky smooth comfortable surface from which to sleep, look no further.
Does it Sleep Cool?
YES! Magniflex chose 3 technologies to ensure a cool, comfortable and dry night’s sleep. It starts with the viscose cover that wicks away moisture combined with the phase change material (Outlast) that is cool to the touch. This is followed by the gel infused Memofoam comfort and pressure relieving foam. Gel is designed to pull away heat from the body (think osmosis from Jr. High science class!). All three layers are designed with air circulation in mind so after the gel pulls the heat away, airflow removes it from the mattress. The result, a cool-to-cold temperature throughout the night keeping you dry and well rested all evening.
How About Edge Support?
Edge support comes from the 6.5” inch solid core. But it has to go through 2 inches of pressure relieving Memofoam and the cushiony cover before you get to it. As a result, the edge support on the Dolci Vital is good, not great. If you sleep close to the edge or spend a lot of time sitting on the edge of your bed but still want that pressure relieving feeling from the mattress, then you might want to look towards the Magnistretch model.
Dolce Vita Comfort & Feel
Magniflex set out to build a mattress that reflected the quality and craftsmanship of the Italian lifestyle and they surpassed expectations with the Dolce Vita. From the moment you touch the surface you feel like you’ve been transported to the Tuscan countryside. The soft cool cushiony cover gives you the feeling of a cotton cloud brushing against your face. And when you lay down, the pressure relief is immediate.
As mentioned above, the Dolce Vita collection features the innovative Dual Core technology, ensuring optimal sleep for couples. With the Dual Core technology, both partners can choose the comfort that is right for each of them by simply unzipping the cover of the mattress and flipping the inner cores to select their favorite comfort level. The Dual Core technology is available in both Queen and King sizes.
Dolce Vita is a multi-sleeper, which means it is designed to support all sleeping styles. However, stomach and back sleepers will realize the most immediate benefit as the mattress is extremely supportive. The moment you lay on the mattress, you feel the foams contour to your every curve. You will feel a little bit of sink, as you sleep more on top of the mattress but any movement is minimized as the foams hug you and keep you secure.
Exclusive side sleepers will also feel very nice pressure relief but the support system may make the bed feel a little firm. This mattress feels on the level of a Tempurpedic as it contours and supports more, the longer you lay in it. The key to any good night sleep is spinal alignment, usually when a mattress does not allow for proper spinal alignment we toss and turn at night, sometimes waking with back, hip or shoulder pain.
The sweet spot of the Dolce Vita is up to 220 pounds. At that range, the Dolce Vita will provide enough support to keep the body aligned for years with the mattress. Over 200 may require additional support which can come from the 12” version of the Dolce Vita. However, for the budget category to which the Dolce Vita falls, they have made a luxurious mattress with unparalleled quality and superior support worth every penny.
- On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the Medium Dolce Vita side a 6.5 and the firm a 7.5 out of 10.
- This is a MultiSleeper, designed for all sleeping styles.
- The pressure relieving comfort layer provides a small amount of sink but the responsive design of the foam and the ability for air to circulate throughout the mattress will keep you cool and dry all night long.
- Edge support is good for the average weight sleeper. You won’t feel like you are rolling off, but folks that like to sleep on the edge should look for a mattress with a little more reinforcement.
Motion Isolation - Good for Couples?
The Dolce Vita is an all foam mattress, so motion transfer is virtually non-existent. The foam does not transfer motion so you will not feel your partner throughout the night.
How does the Dolce Vita arrive?
The Dolce Vita arrives compressed and wrapped up in a box for easy shipping and moving to the bedroom. The dense foams make the bed definitely on the heavier side. Most sizes will be a 2 man job to move, especially if going up stairs. Simply unbox the mattress, rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping. The bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day.
