Hippo is a comfortable futon sofa bed that can easily be converted into a comfortable double mattress. By loosening the backrest and raising the arms, the Hippo flattens and becomes a thick, richly padded futon mattress that is perfect for guests and sleepovers.

Design by Anders Backe, Anne-Sofie Voss, Ida Sofie Lange, Lars Wigh and Troels Rask Pedersen for Karup Design.


The filling in the mattress is mainly made of recycled cotton and tested according to TÜV, which means that quality and environmental standards are met. To arrive at recycled cotton, cotton from worn clothing or cutting waste is used. The big advantage of recycled cotton is that the impact on the environment is many times smaller than with organic or regular cotton without losing the comfort properties.
