What is a futon?

A futon (布団) is the Japanese word used to describe a sleeping space. A traditional Japanese futon can be stored away during the day and taken out for sleeping on at night. One of the main advantages of the futon is, that it is foldable and takes up little space, which perfectly fits with Japanese minimalistic way of living. Futons are mostly placed on tatamis which provides a softer base for the futon instead of placing it on a hard surface. Karup Design took this Japanese tradition and added a Danish touch to it. Our futon mattresses are thicker and denser than their traditional Japanese counterparts. Depending on what product they are used for, their filling may vary. But they do have one thing in common: They are highly versatile and can be stored away, if needed. 


Make room for more. In less space.
