Meet Hästens’ craft
We’ve made beds this way since 1852, and we’re yet to find a better way. Sure, there’s been refinement, as our mastery of natural materials has progressed but pure handcraft lies at the core of every detail of our beds. And the quality of the result is something that you can feel and sense, even before you lay down.
The master craftsman’s journey
They say obsession is dangerous. And Hästens was, and still is, driven by our master craftsmen whose obsession with their art is unerring. A desire to make better beds than anyone else on this earth. The best beds in the world—an ambitious goal, yet one that we truly believe we’ve achieved. The finest natural materials in the finest, most capable hands.
Hästens and the craft of innovation
Sweden’s legacy of design and handcrafting is long, illustrious and fascinating. Rooted in what it is to be Swedish, how we think, act and live. And Hästens is very much a part of this legacy; boasting many landmark developments of our own that have actively contributed to how we sleep today.
Behind every Hästens bed, from the feet up, are hundreds of man hours of iterations, research, development and design considerations. A true case of design thinking in every aspect of its construction; with every element performing numerous individual tasks that add up to the whole Hästens experience of perfect sleep.
Sleep lies in the details. The engineering of the bed. In the devotion of the master craftsman’s work and handling of the all-natural materials. The selection of slow-growing pine from Sweden’s north. It’s flax; durable and anti-static. Softest cotton distributed by hand. Breathable, temperature-regulating wool. And horsetail hair, breathable and naturally springy.
