Our visit to the Hypnos bed and mattress factory at Princes Risborough included a tour of the factory
All the divan bases are made from Scandinavian pine which is carefully checked for knots and defects. Hypnos will not accept a piece of timber that has 2 knots that are a third of the width of it within a 1 metre section. Scandinavnian pine is used as there is a continuous growing season so the timber is not prone to spliting.
Hypnos make a variety of bases that include:-
Sprung Edge with Open Coil Springs
Sprung Edge with Pocket Springs
Firm Edge with Open Coil Springs
Firm Edge with Pocket Springs
Padded Top Ottoman
Below are pictures of some of the manufacturing stages of a Hypnos divan base.
