Zen R3+8

Clarity is an attainable virtue.

During the 1980s this futon was named "Futon CDE" and it was a best seller product. Unfortunately its popularity declined due to the "memory foam boom" … now they are making a comeback. Zen R3+8 is a strong and comfortable futon, with perfect "climate regulation".

It beds almost every sleeper very comfortably, even though it can be persued as too soft in the beginning - but be assured that it will become considerably firmer with time. If you provide it with a lot of fresh air (in vegan version also sun baths), turn it around and loose it up often, roll it up ocasionally, then this futon will last comfortably and nicely up to 10-15 years.

This futon is sufficient for light to medium heavy futon sleepers or stomach/back sleepers.
Heavy people starting at ca. 75kg or "mattress emigrants" can combine Zen R3+8 with any other shiatsu futon according to their needs, creating an extremely comfortable TWIN Futon.

The product preparation cleaning and care is the same, just as its climate regulation properties in a futon. Further information you can find in our Glossary and our Material/Primary Materials. "
