Did you know that Dux is actually a Latin word connoting leadership? It is not surprising then, that Duxiana commands much respect, as one of the greatest makers of luxury beds. We at Danish Design present to you – all you need to know about Duxiana’s origins, how it grew, and what it is today.
DUXIANA: THEN AND NOW
The Story of DUX, a family business.
1924 – The beginning
Swedish Chocolate maker, Efraim Ljung, is on a business trip to The New World, and has arrived in Chicago and spends a night there.
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.
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.
Opening of the first DUX showroom and offices in New York, USA.
DUX introduced the DUXIANA marketing concept in Europe, Great Britain, and the United States.
The Duxiana Concept
DUX is represented in 22 countries and stands as a global, eminent symbol of quality, innovation, and craftsmanship – just as Efraim Ljung envisioned from the beginning. DUX beds are now available in more than 88 locations worldwide, including Singapore.
