WHAT IS A FUTON?

A futon is a Japanese word used to describe a sleeping space. A traditional Japanese futon can be stored away during the day and taken out to sleep on at night. One of the futon's main advantages is that it is foldable and takes up little space, which perfectly fits with the minimalistic Japanese way of living. Futons are mostly placed on tatami mats, which provide a softer base for the futon. Karup Design took the Japanese tradition and added a Danish touch to it. Our futon mattresses are thicker than the traditional Japanese futons, and the fillings vary between different futon types. But they do have one thing in common: They are highly versatile and can be stowed away if needed. 

Make room for more. In less space.

MATERIALS USED IN THE FILLINGS

In this section you can explore more about our filling material in our bed futon mattresses. Each material has advantages to improve your sleeping comfort.

Cotton

Due to the nature of cotton it has been used in futon mattresses since the beginning of time. It adjusts itself to the contours of the body and supports it along its entire lenght. Cotton absorbs moisture produced during the night and during the day air can circulate and evaporate the moisture. The cotton in our futon mattresses is a completely natural material.

Coconut

Coconut plates are used to create more firm futon mattresses. The plates are made from soften coconut fibers combined by using latex. Their structure allows the air to easily pass through, meaning that the mattress is constantly ventilated. Coconut fibres are a hard material resistant to moisture - they do not absorb water.

Latex Foam

The raw materials used in the production of latex is the milk obtained from rubber trees. Thanks to its elasticity and softness it adjusts itself to the body and its structure allows the mattress to be continiusly ventilated. The material has many beneficial points: it is dust-free, hygenic, highly ergonomic, heat-insulating, breathable, long-lasting and durable.

Polyfoam

Polyurethane foam is well-known thanks to its softness and lightness. It will provide light support and a soft surface to sleep on. When slept on, it contours to the shapes of your body, and during the day it will recover to its original shape.

When buying a Karup Design sofa bed, you can be sure that the futon mattress's filling is fabric waste from mattress production. A core of polyfoam in the mattress makes the comfort more firm when sitting and sleeping. The waste fabric consists of cotton, polyester, threads, and scrap fabric and has been tested according to TÜV.
