Owl + Lark's mission:

to help you optimise your sleep so you can be at your best each day

We're a sleep company grown from a family business

Launched in 2020, O+L is the result of a 20 year family business designing and manufacturing luxury interiors and mattresses for 5* hotels and residences around the world.

We combine deep product experience and a total commitment to our customers, with cutting edge industrial design, sleep science and digital technology.

We’re passionate about making sure each customer improves their sleep and wakes up fresh every day.

Our Story

Running on coffee and adrenaline, our founder Hafiz realised that cheating sleep was affecting every aspect of his personal and professional life. And he could see he wasn’t alone.

 

When it came to optimising diet and exercise, options were everywhere. Not so for sleep. 

 

So after a frustrated quest to find the best sleep products and services, he assembled a team of experts and founded Owl + Lark.

 

Its purpose is to find the best ways to help everyone optimise their sleep and improve daytime performance, whatever they do.

 

Building from our experience in manufacturing mattresses and furniture, and with a close eye on the sleep science, we assessed hundreds of mattress types, materials, and constructions over the course of 18 months. 

 

We then crafted, refined and iterated every element of the mattress. The result: a new type of hybrid mattress – the finest we have ever made or slept on. 

We're your team of sleep specialists
- night owls and morning larks - trying to find better sleep in busy lives.

Hafiz Shariff - Founder + CEO - Lark

As a tech entrepreneur and former city lawyer, Hafiz learned first hand how a busy all-go lifestyle needs to be balanced by proper rest. 

 

With tech everywhere, he believes the bedroom should be a sanctuary of recovery, a place that is functional and beautiful – that encourages you to relax.

 

He’s inspired by his love of wild camping – and the advances in gear that makes it easy. He’s driven to make innovative products that keep enticing the user and perform flawlessly.

Dr Luke Gupta (PhD) - Chief Sleep Scientist - Owl

As leading sleep scientist to elite sports teams including Team GB Olympics and Paralymipcs among others, Dr Gupta has formidable experience translating the latest sleep science into elite athletic performance. 

 

Through his work he has discovered that many of the challenges faced by athletes apply in other occupations and lifestyles: long haul travel, late nights, insomnia, anxiety, overstimulation, sleepless partners etc.

 

Together with Owl + Lark he’s on a mission to use the science to help everyone to achieve better sleep whatever their lifestyle, and unlock that extra edge in their daily lives.
