Poggenpohl Manufacturing GmbH:
Founded in 1892, the small cabinetmaker’s shop has evolved into the lead-ing brand for German-made luxury kitchen architecture.
Designing the kitchen as the centre of home life
Poggenpohl has a long tradition of innovation
When Friedemir Poggenpohl founded the family business in 1892, his aim was “to improve the kitchen”. Over the course of nearly 130 years, the small cabinetmaker’s shop has evolved into the leading brand for German-made luxury kitchen architecture. As the inventor of the modern kitchen, Poggenpohl today sustainably combines architectural concepts and applications with trend-setting design, superb craftsmanship and technical precision.
For Poggenpohl, today’s kitchens symbolise a life of enjoyment that is rich in character and full of energy. Kitchens are where people cook, celebrate, work and live – in abundance and with enthusiasm. Thus, people are at the centre of the planning when Poggenpohl’s architects develop custom solutions for their customers’ individual ideas and living spaces, whether these are being developed in the company’s own studios or at specialised dealers. During the creative planning process, the company’s specialists analyse the customers’ desires and ideas, supporting them with professional expertise in every decision along the way. Each kitchen is a contemporary original, distinctively playing upon the surrounding architecture. Fascinating proportions, carefully selected quality materials and inspiring colours are combined in refreshing and consistently elegant interpretations.
The kitchens are manufactured exclusively in Germany, ensuring their distinction and high standard of quality. Production is carried out at the company’s headquarters in Herford, Germany, employing artisanal aesthetics and the utmost precision. Principles of sustainability play an important role for Poggenpohl during the entire development and manufacturing process and in view of each product’s use. The kitchens are sold in over 70 countries around the world, through an international network of the company’s own studios and authorised business partners.
