the must-haves of quality

Founded with the strong desire to introduce a new “sleeping culture”, accompanied by the great intention to produce beds of superb quality, Flou is today one of the world’s leading companies in the manufacture of beds and mattresses and in general, all those complementary furnishings and accessories that belong in the night area, and not only. Starting from the parent of all textile beds, the Nathalie bed designed by Magistretti, Flou now offers a catalogue of more than 40 different bed types, ranging from double beds and singles, to sofa beds and transformable beds, all with one important objective: to improve the sleep of people and their lives.

Owing to the extraordinary Flou Research Centre, over the years the company has been able to innovate itself and offers models and solutions always abreast of the times. However, there has been no shortage of collaborations with illustrious international design names who have masterminded several trendsetting products together with Flou. Vico Magistretti, Enzo Mari, Carlo Colombo and Rodolfo Dordoni are but a few of the designers who have worked with Flou and contributed to the company’s success.

Today Flou prides itself on its numerous single-brand showrooms found in the world’s most important cities and collections displayed in leading furniture stores that export the know-how and quality typical of products Made in Italy. The quality policy pursued by Flou has made it a market leader today.

Tappeto Volante: contemporary goes iconic

Designed in 1989 by Enzo Mari for Flou, Tappeto Volante is a bed that still amazes today for the essentiality and elegance that its delicate and slender shapes convey. This extraordinary double bed, also available in a single-bed version, is a tribute to the simplicity and freshness that have always distinguished the works of Enzo Mari. The structure and headboard are made entirely of lacquered steel—white or black—while the legs are height-adjustable to lower or raise the bed level. The semi-circular headboard can be left in sight or covered in fabric so as to offer more comfortable support and welcoming aesthetics. The contemporary and essential style makes it the perfect Flou bed for fresh and airy bedrooms in which essentiality and good taste reign supreme.

Nathalie: the iconic bed, leader of Flou’s must-haves

An iconic bed designed by Magistretti in 1978 for Flou, Nathalie is the Flou double bed par excellence which, with its unmistakable bows on the sides of the headboard cushions, is universally acclaimed as the parent of textile beds. The headboard and base can be upholstered with fabric, leather or eco-leather, owing to practical Velcro fasteners that allow them to be removed. The bed is available with or without a storage base, and with a fixed or reclining headboard, the latter offering greater comfort when you are not resting but rather sitting. Nathalie is a bed that invites you to rest giving a unique and incomparably cosy feeling typical of Flou beds, becoming one of the most beloved and cherished beds ever. In confirmation of the great success achieved, the Nathalie bed managed to win the most coveted accolade of all: the Compasso d’Oro award.

Duetto: the versatile must-have

Another must-have product from Flou is undoubtedly the Duetto bed which, owing to its ability to transform to need, is a very versatile product that will satisfy any type of demand. Designed internally by the Flou Research Centre in 1992, Duetto is a single bed that turns into a double simply by pulling the second bed from its base and raising it with gas pistons to the level of the first bed and joining it with practical fasteners. Duetto is completed by an elegant seat cover, pillow covers, and roll cushions; on request, it can be completed by adding a backrest to make it a comfortable sofa as well. Simplicity and comfort are the two distinguishing features of this remarkable Flou bed which, above all others, manages to adapt to even the most unusual settings and the most varied needs.
