global entrepreneur, founder and CEO of HONGi, the modular mattress company that makes customizable mattresses
Peter Leyhr is an entrepreneur with ten years of experience as a product manager. He founded HONGi after working for years in the mattress industry, which made him realize that mass-produced mattresses fail to meet customers’ needs. HONGi offers a modular, made-to-order mattress that enables customers to customize each side of the bed to their liking, with no gap in the middle. Before completing their order, customers fill out an online questionnaire to determine what attributes they’re looking for in a mattress, and then their HONGi is made especially for them using foam layers. HONGi users can keep on customizing their mattresses as many times as they want by ordering replacement layers and easily switching them at home.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
