In the history of the modern bed, the year 1978 was a milestone. It was the year that Flou was founded, a company with the precise objective of innovating the bedroom and create a new ‘sleep culture’. Being fully aware that good sleep makes a major contribution to better living, Flou wanted to offer clients the best way of sleeping. They produced modern and functional designer beds with an excellent price-quality ratio.
Flou and its continual development saw aesthetics and function going hand-in-hand with innovation in the field of materials, technology, rationalization of the production processes. However, the company philosophy remained unchanged: to produce excellent beds, designed with the precise objective of improving comfort, wellness and quality of life.
