From Footbeds to Beds, Birkenstock Launches Home Goods

Birkenstock is taking the “bed” portion of “footbed” to a whole new level by introducing mattresses.

Known for their iconic cork footbed, Birkenstock revealed this week at the IMM Cologne International Interiors Show in Germany plans to launch the Birkenstock Bed Collection. The company also made the announcement on Instagram.

According to Dezeen, Birkenstock will produce mattresses, wood-slat bases and six frame styles, using the cork-latex blend used for the soles of the company’s sandals. Leather strap detailing will be added to headboards to hold reading materials, Dezeen reported.

“The Birkenstock principles for walking and standing are now being applied to lying and sleeping comfort,” a spokesperson for Birkenstock told Dezeen. “Just as the Birkenstock footbed fits the natural form of the foot, the form of these sleep systems is attuned to the entire body, their exceptional support ensures healthy and restful sleep.”

A release date for the new Birkenstock Bed Collection was not immediately announced.
