In the early 1980, the backbone year of the spandex leggings, bagel bites and voluminous pants, Michael Daryanani took a leisure trip to seek the beautiful attractions of New Zealand. On the course of his adventures, it turned out that aside from the Manuka honey, the cliff of bay and rugby, there was something else that allured and captured his attention; the squishy comforts of laying on a waterbed for the first time.
This took him by storm. It was only by chance he stumbled upon the discovery of the general comforts and health benefits of a waterbed, but at that single moment, a strong desire to provide the ‘sleeping on waves’ experience to his hometown community surged.
Well ahead, after heading back home, his efforts to actualize his concepts transformed into an idea which later in 1984, finally led to the founding of Fantasy Waterbed.
