Designed to feel like you’re not wearing a mask DreamWear’s revolutionary design directs airflow through the frame to give users the freedom to sleep comfortably and unrestricted. By relocating the hose connection from in front of the face most of the expected complexity that creates a barrier to their sleeping partners is eliminated. Red marks to the face are reduced and patients can achieve any sleep position, even kissing their partner goodnight. This allows a more comfortable, freeing and humanizing sleep solution, treating sleep apnea and enabling users to have the perfect night’s sleep.

  • ASSESMENT CRITERIA Execution, Innovation, Brand Fit

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

This breathing mask won over the jury with its low weight and extraordinarily high wearing comfort. This product can rightly be considered a visionary design, given its precise and minimalist design and the ease with which the mask can be put on or taken off. What’s more, this mask features a number of intelligent and beautifully designed details such as the rotatable connection with integrated small vents, located above the head. For the jury, this was an absolutely pioneering design in the area of apnea devices.
