About us

Good day.

Since 1988 my team and I manufacture quality futons, natural latex mattresses, solid wood beds and whatever else is required for good sleep - always completely natural, made from selected raw materials and German handicrafts - always top quality.

Since 2009 we sell our futons directly and without intermediate trade through our website. This allows us to provide consultation that matches our high quality standards and keep the price fair at the same time (those who are cheaper than us are cheating).

The people that manufacture your futon are still the same and have a lot of growing experience as well as the manufacturer of our materials, with some of whom we sometimes work together since the beginning and in this way ensuring consistent quality.
At FUTONWERK we devote ourselves completely to my favorite topic: FUTON, and the amount of praise we receive for our products validates our work.

However, in a sense with make it easy for ourselves: we use only the best materials, whereas we always have a special focus on the quality of natural rubber, which provides our futons with that extra special touch.

You will find a selection of quality futons that will make your sleep much 'nicer' - at very friendly prices as it is also our aim to make top quality affordable.

If you have questions concerning sleep or how to find your personal futon, please send me an email at info@futonwerk.de or via our contact form or simply give me a call: 0231 5898 1120. We will happily attend to your questions with our extensive expertise personally.

Dietmar Wagner

Management / Product Development / Customer Consultation
As a product developer, I have already created many natural mattresses. What is most important to me is that each of our products is coherent in itself and serves its intended purpose, so it makes sense. High quality futons have always been my favorite products. Of course, I can tell you everything about each futon and probably help you find the right product more safely than a sample test.

He was already significantly involved in the establishment of our original company "Form in Form" and was also in charge of production and logistics there. Some Futon models were co-developed by him. Today he is still responsible for the flow of goods and production, from raw materials to punctual delivery to customers throughout Europe. Of course he can help you with all your questions about futons and beds.

Directly after his studies, the world of sleeping became his professional home over 25 years ago.

There are, of course, good reasons why he now ends up with our 100% natural products. and will be happy to share his experience with you, on the phone or in our showroom in Dortmund.

How it all started

It was in the spring of 1986, when I spent the first night on a FUTON, a pure, 10-ply cotton futon.
So one day the burgundy-red thing (from Futon Company, London) was lying in my bedroom on the floor next to my bed with an old spring mattress and trampoline bed base, which I had not slept properly on for a long time. For some time now I battled with sleep disturbances and I was already consulting neurological assistance because of the matter. Sleep-shops, especially those with natural ingredients such as the one you may know, did not really exist at that time, at least not in the Ruhr region, let alone sites like this as the public internet was not available even more so.

Actually I didn’t really know what to do with the mat on my floor, so I first laid down on it, found it to be comfortable and decided to pause for a moment to think and feel into it.

The moment then lasted a good 8 or 9 hours as I very soon fell asleep and probably tucked the duvet towards me during the night.
The next morning I woke up relaxed and well rested for the first time since quite a long period; I was "healed". The firmness, the languorous one after the years on the 'trampoline', the naturalness as well as the beautiful color and simply the other look, all that made me so happy that I decided right there and then to henceforth dedicate myself to this issue. It has now been many years and many products, several manufacturing facilities and several shops have emerged since. But above all: many people have since been given the opportunity and learned to deal with the topic of sleep properly, in order to give it the importance it deserves.

Sleep is life and who sleeps well...
