The Emma Original Hybrid is a five-layer luxury mattress that combines various high-quality foams with a core of 12.5 cm pocket springs.
One of Emma's most advanced and innovative mattresses.

- A top comfort layer of breathable Airgocell® foam.
- A layer of pressure-relieving visco-elastic memory foam.
- A layer of stabilising and supportive HRX cold foam.
- A spring layer of 12.5 cm (4'9") individually wrapped pocket springs.

Emma Original Hybrid mattress layers
1. Top comfort layer of Airgocell® foam
Emma's trademarked Airgocell® foam forms the top comfort layer of the Emma Original Hybrid mattress.
This foam is more breathable than traditional foams, specifically designed to reduce heat and result in a cooler sleep 🆒
This layer is also pressure-relieving and body-contouring, providing superior comfort and that "sleeping on a cloud" feeling you can expect from Emma mattresses.
2. Pressure-relieving memory foam
Visco-elastic memory foam forms the next layer.
Memory foam is often recommended for orthopaedic mattresses as it adapts to the body's shape and relieves pressure well.
This makes the mattress suitable for those struggling with back problems.
The memory foam has been specifically positioned towards the top of the mattress to allow heat to escape ♨️
One downfall of memory foam is that it retains heat quite well, so it needs to be combined with more breathable materials to reduce the temperature.
The memory foam also provides a final layer of cushioning before the sturdier cold foam and pocket springs.
3. HRX cold foam layer
Cold foam is usually found at the base of the mattress to provide support and stability, but the Emma Original Hybrid features this as an additional cooling layer underneath the memory foam, allowing heat to escape through the bottom of the mattress.
It acts as a supportive stabilising layer as well.
4. Spring layer core with zoned pocket springs
The zoned pocket sprung layer forms the core of the mattress.
In contrast to some other hybrids like the Emma Hybrid or the Simba Hybrid, which feature mini springs, the Emma Original Hybrid features a layer of full-sized pocket springs with a height of 12.5 cm (4'9").
This pocket sprung layer enhances breathability and support.
Each spring is individually wrapped, meaning it can respond to isolated movements, enhancing point elasticity, pressure relief capabilities, and motion isolation.
The pocket spring core is encased by foam walls, allowing for greater stability across the surface of the mattress and enabling edge-to-edge support without the feeling that you'll roll off the mattress if you sleep too far on the side.
5. Base foam layer
The lower foam layer acts as a final supportive and solid base for the mattress.
No-turn mattress composition
The composition of the Emma Original Hybrid mattress is quite specific, with a distinct top and bottom side.
This makes it a no-turn mattress.
Height of the Emma Original Hybrid
The pocket springs measure 12.5 cm (4'9"), and the bottom foam layer averages around 5.5 cm (5'5").
The top foam layers are much thinner.
The standard depth/height of the Emma Original Hybrid is 25 cm (10").
This is on par with most bed-in-a-box mattresses, meaning that your bed sheets and mattress protector should fit snugly.
