The awakening
After a night of unbelievably soothing rest, he wondered, “How could a bed be that comfortable?” Mesmerised, he cut into the mattress, discovering flexible steel springs. He meticulously stitched the

fabric together again but carried this idea back to

Sweden.

Persistence

Ljung’s flexible bed and restful sleep were simply

unforgettable. He started focusing less on his

confectionery business & started experimenting with steel springs of varying strength and elasticity.

The First Duxiana

His efforts ultimately resulted in the first DUX bed – with a sensitive and unique spring technology that reacts to pressure and weight.
